HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

March 19, 2007
Chuckle of the Week


I, MAXINE , being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it, or lawyers/doctors interested in simply running up the bills. If a reasonable amount (12 hours) of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:

  • Glass of wine,
  • Chocolate,
  • Margarita,
  • Chocolate,
  • Cold Beer,
  • Chocolate,
  • Chicken fried steak & cream gravy,
  • Chocolate,
  • Mexican food,
  • Chocolate,
  • French fries,
  • Chocolate,
  • Pizza,
  • Chocolate,
  • Ice cream,
  • Cup of tea,
  • Chocolate,
  • Chocolate,
  • Sex, and
  • Chocolate,

It should be presumed that I won't ever get better. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes and call it a day.
