A living will (best not copied)

Although very applicable, this living will may not conform to the requirements set out above:

I, _____, 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 pinhead politicians who couldn’t pass ninth-grade biology (or woodwork??) if their lives depended on it, or lawyers/doctors interested in simply running up the bills. If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:

Glass of wine, chocolate, Pina Colada, chocolate, Martini, cold beer, chocolate, steak & lobster, Crème Brule, chocolate, Italian food, chocolate, onion rings, chocolate, pizza, chocolate, ice cream, cup of tea, chocolate, chocolate, you-know-what, chocolate…

Then it should be presumed that I won’t ever get better. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, let the ‘fat lady sing,’ and call it a day!
