In case you need a living will
 
Got this in an email:

[size=2]
As your friend, I feel it's my duty to point out to you the importance of having a living will, particularly given the recent publicity about what happens if you don't have one. For your convenience, I've included the form I would recommend for you below:

*****************************************************************************************************

I, _________________________ (fill in the blank), 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 peckerhead politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it.



If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to sit up and ask for a scotch and a cigar, it should be presumed that I won't do so ever again. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my spouse, children and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, throw a party in my memory and call it a day.

Under no circumstances shall the members of the Legislature enact a special law to keep me on life-support machinery. It is my wish that these boneheads mind their own damn business, and pay attention instead to the health, education and future of the millions of Americans who aren't in a permanent coma and who nonetheless may be in need of nourishment.

Under no circumstances shall any politicians butt into this case. I don't care how many fundamentalist votes they're trying to scrounge for their run for the presidency in 2008, it is my wish that they play politics with someone else's life and leave me alone to die in peace.

I couldn't care less if a hundred religious zealots send e-mails to legislators in which they pretend to care about me. I don't know these people, and I certainly haven't authorized them to preach and/or crusade on my behalf. They should mind their own damn business, too.

If any of my family goes against my wishes and turns my case into a political cause, I hereby promise to come back from the grave and make his or her existence a living hell.

Hahahahah... I like that AND the message it has.

It's just GI Joe...

"And knowing is half the battle."

LOL! Seriously; I want to print that out and put it in my permanent medical records, because that is 100% correct.
"I couldn't care less if a hundred religious zealots send e-mails to legislators in which they pretend to care about me. I don't know these people" That is my favorite line.
