Cheap Redundant Assorted Products

(pronounced: crap)

An acronym used primarily in texting, online chat, instant messaging, e-mail, blogs, and newsgroup postings, it is also considered a form of online jargon or text message shorthand.

It's a play on words to describe an inferior product that sells more than a high-quality product because the latter costs a little bit more or because the public doesn't know better than to buy the cheap version. The inferior product is referred to as "CRAP."
