The Best Living Will I've Seen!

This was sent to me this morning, and I found it quite amusing, and true!!!

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 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
Rum & Coke
Italian Bread with butter
French Fries
Ice Cream
Clam Cakes
Homemade Apple Pie
Macaroni & Cheese
Mashed Potatoes

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!

Ain't that the truth!
