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 lawyers/doctors/hospitals 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:
___a Scotch and soda
___a Bloody Mary
___a Gin and Tonic
___a Glass of Chardonnay
___a Lobster or some crab legs
___ the remote control
___a bowl of ice cream
___the sports page
...it should be presumed that I won't ever be getting any better.
When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, and call it a wrap. At this point, please call the New Orleans Jazz Funeral Band ask all of my friends to raise their glasses to toast the good times...

In Ireland they have a Nursing Home with a Pub. The patients are happier, and they have a lot more visitors. Some of them don't need embalming when their time comes... If anyone knows the name of this happy place, PLEASE pass it on!
