    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""?

    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.

    "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.

    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.
