Kwispy refers to an image macro, depicting a photoshopped version of Harvey Dent’s face from The Dark Knight where the character’s entire visage is burnt.
The image macro is often paired with the intentionally misspelled caption “kwispy” as if Dent was trying to say the word crispy with his lips missing.
