“Can I sign up for the crackpot program?”
(The patron really wanted to sign up for the Crock Pot cooking program.)

The Rival Company became a household word in the early 1970s with the introduction of the Rival Crock Pot, a slow cooker that literally changed the way dinners were made for many people. Other items manufactured include can openers, meat slicers, grinders, toasters, ice cream makers, space heaters, ceiling fans, shower head massagers, humidifiers, air purifiers, and others, according to International Directory of Company Histories (St. James Press), one of thousands of titles available in the Gale Virtual Reference Library.
