LOL...did anyone read the ticker that went across the bottom?
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 am ignorant (no sarcasm involved). Thanks for explaining.
Hey! I know that kid!
And definitely read the news-ticker scrolling across the bottom! Damn that's some funny stuff!
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.
Willona, stop tellin' those stories...
Peter, you're killing me - no one takes the piss better than you, my dear .
This has to be the thread of the year. There are no words.
But I made $2.35 last month from those ad clicks!
It's almost as good as some of the comments left on youtube!
"coma patient does not respond to being dressed in humiliating Chikita banana hat"
"Trying on clothes is evidence of life!"
Oh dear me I am crying with laughter! Just x infinity!!
I was reading this at work (can't post there) and about died trying not to laugh out loud at this one!!!!!
There were some anti-choice groups who thought the Onion article "I'm Totally Psyched About This Abortion" was for real.
And i wanted to share my favorite onion article of all time--http://www.theonion.com/articles/japan-pledges-to-halt-production-of-weirdo-porn-th,2657/
Really at this point I don't think I can move this thread in a weirder direction--it's happily rolling downhill so why try to stop it? Go ahead, read about colostomy bag porn.
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!
I like you people. Even you. And you know who you are. Well, you probably don't. Which is funny!
