Don't Forget to Water Your Vegetables!

A judge has finally said that, on March 18, the feeding tube can be removed from Terri Schiavo's mouth.

If you're not familiar with this story, there was this woman who, 15 years ago, collapsed and had her heart stop beating as a side effect of an eating disorder that she had. Her parents and her husband have had an ongoing fued--like the Hatfields and the McCoys except with a lot more creepy blank stares and a lot less straw hats--over whether or not they should keep this woman alive in her vegetable-like state. The husband says that she wouldn't want that and the parents say that she would love to be kept alive unaware of everything that's going on around her, unable to speak or do anything except lie in bed.

Father really does know best.

They decided on the date, March 18, because Terri loved St. Patrick's Day and they couldn't let her miss it. To celebrate, they're going to inject green applesauce into her feeding tube then kill her 15 years late because her parents are selfish bastards. It's going to be the most uplifting St. Patrick's Day ever!

Interesting thought of the day:
John Travolta is the Grand Wizard of the Scientologists. They all have to refer to him as "Your Royal Highness in the plastic bubble."
