"He just said `I want to live`" Did he really say that? That`s impressive.


Why are people so stupid?

Empathy for animals? Absolutely! Poor little turtle.
Over humanization describing his "courage and strength" and his will to live is a bit loopy though. Is she going to start telling us his harrowing tale how after the accident he started drinking and hit his girlfriend and sunk in to a depression, but after seeing an advertisement for the Special Turtle Olympics, he decided that is was time to cast aside that bottle and be the best damned turtle he could? A heart warming turtle training montage later, yaddah yaddah gold medal, and the movie wins an Oscar.

Opie, you raise an interesting point. With all of these home videos lying around, why hasn`t Hitler been posthumously done away with?!

"We can`t cure childhood cancer, but we can give a turtle legs. Thank God we`ve got our priorities straight."

Are you kidding? That`s like saying, "We can record endless hours of family video, but we can`t travel back in time and kill Hitler."

One is a bit more difficult than the other.

BostonKaiser - "We can`t cure childhood cancer, but we can give a turtle legs. Thank God we`ve got our priorities straight."

Um, Boston: Did you by any chance look at the video? This is a very loose interpretation of prosthetic legs. Put these folks on the childhood cancer research circuit, and I picture the treatment consisting of hitting the cancer with a hammer.

most useless prosthetics ever. toothpics taped to his nubs would be more useful. I mean you seriously glued two spring corks to his stomach

Wait, so they just glued some kitchen chair feet on the turtle and called it a prosthetic?

Worse, did that bat-sh#t crazy lady just say "He just said "I want to live""?
