The following is from Whitney Quesenbery

I’ve started seeing unintended (editorial) humor about accessibility. Here’s a few…anyone have any more?

From Usability News
“…access for people with visibility problems”
(Yes, people with disabilities often do have problems making themselves “visible”)

From any hotel
“…handicapped room…”
(Mine had a broken phone, so it really was “handicapped”)

From a standard (now fixed)
“…able to use products with color vision deficits.”
(Hmm. Didn’t know products had vision, let alone color vision)
