    In this case, I do think that euthanasia was the humane alternative... for all involved.

    That's it! I used to use it regularly in the past, but it's been years since I last used it.

    I checked Snopes.com and they don't have this.

    Is this supposed to be a joke?

    Either you're sincere or you have accomplished the long con of extended sarcasm, and I'm not familiar enough to be sure, so I will explain just in case:

    The website this comes from (The Onion) only publishes sarcastic satirical articles. They are all jokes. They poke fun at the exaggerated nature of typical news stories and the way many news stories take something that is not really a big deal (teens don't get along with their parents or want to play video games or lay on the couch instead of doing their homework) and turn it into a major catastrophe.

    I used the term "fake story" rather than "joke" because it's in extremely bad taste, and I fail to see anything funny in it.

    This doesn't change the fact that Peter G never at any point thought he was posting a true real life story.

    Oh gawd, I hope Ryan Murphy did not take advantage of this tragic story to advance his show. I mean, all Quinn does is roll her eyes and she was texting while driving, which caused her accident. She's gonna go brain dead and be euthanized!

    Ha ha! I believed it all until the very end when the doctor's receptionist was euthanized because all she could ever do was eat all the candy in the waiting room candy jar!:lol:
