    This is a fake story.

    If she were brain dead, she wouldn't be able to roll her eyes or anything else.

    I just don't these stories, I find them to be in really bad taste.

    I hear ya, Peter. When I was a teenager we got our asses off our couches and went outside and rolled our eyes. Uphill. In both directions. And we didn't wait for mommy to schedule an eye roll date for us, we went outside and walked around and rolled our eyes with the other kids in the neighborhood until it was time for dinner. And then we rolled our eyes WHILE we ate dinner.

    We were so poor we were born without eyes, we had to make our OWN eyes out of Jello, raisins and spit, and THEN roll them.

    I am forgetting the name of the site that checks stories for their validity. Peter, have you checked this story?(I don't mean to offend you by asking this)

    Oh yeah? We were so poor we had to use our Jello eyeballs for dessert when we were done rolling them. Sometimes even BEFORE we were done rolling them. Mama would come by and say "Chile, you git yer eyeballs in that bowl RIGHT now!" Oh yes she did. Mama didn't cotton to no chillin who didn't eat their eyeballs.

    This is very confusing. We should definitely check. It could totally go either way.

    Well, we were so poor we only had one set of eyes for the four of us kids, so we had to roll them back and forth to each other. Eight eye sockets, two eyeballs. You do the math.

    Actually I was thinking of another site that I had used in the past to check if a story was true or a hoax. I am sure it will come back to me at some point.

    The Onion is the name of the website that published this article.

    I love you all - (but Peter especially) for this thread.

    Also Peter - I used the whole word "love" because I know you hate shortened versions of words - and the <3 causes you to be very much perplexed.

    She really should be put out of her misery now before she starts blogging. After blogging, there really is no hope at all. No one wants their life to depend solely on anonymous online comments and ad clicks.
