Since I live near Finksburg and not too far from Scaggsville I am
perhps desensitized to such points of political correctness. But
I do remember from half a century ago a group of hotrodders who
proudly called themselves the Kreeping Krips of Kaiser-Kabat.
Kaiser was a hospital system and these particular hotrodders
built and modified their cars from their wheelchairs. 

There was an organization in the headquarters of Social Security called
the Public Inquiries Group. Someone objected to the initials so
they proposed changing their name to Public Inquiries Sub Section.  

Bottom line, I thought the name "Gimp" a bit lame when I first
heard it but now it falls trippingly from my tongue.
