I'm at the library which I may vow to return to when Cleveland wins a Championship...some f**k was arguing at a security guard, but...

I saw this commercial that I can't take-out of my brain...5this Shriner's Hospital commercial with an armless kid...I feel bad for him in a way, but...I think this is the one...

Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

Can't view it.  But I don't need to.  Seen it a million times.
 
The kids' optimism is impressive...and maybe a little unrealistic.  With their problems, they'll never lead a normal life.  They may even be seen as courageous or exceptional or admirable---but never just normal.  I always feel bad for them.

I like Alec.... he's got spunk! I know it sounds heartless to say this, but the others sort of gross me out. Don't get me wrong, I feel sorry for them and wish them all the best in life, but visually it's a bit like looking at abused animals or starving kids covered in flies. Playing on others' pity ain't gonna cure or solve anything.
I do not think much, I do not think often, but when I do think, I think about sex!!

At the risk of sounding mean, ENOUGH OF THESE ADS!!!!  I looked up the other day at the TV to a new one with a young girl with a freakish looking tiny right hand like the character Kristen Wiig used to play on SNL. 
Sorry, not trying to sound like a jerk towards these poor kids, but you all know what I mean. I don't need to see them trotted out every fifteen minutes begging for my pity

Yeah, I think that's the one that has the armless kid having his mother (also armless) combing his hair using her feet.
 
I think I'd rather grow dreads than have my mother's feet in my face.
 
Forward to 43 seconds.

I have an issue with the fact that a woman born with no arms, who knew fully well that if she had a child he or she would more than likely have the same disability, still chose to get pregnant and birth a child kniwing he would suffer a lifetime of hardship, just as she had to. She admits her problems were insurmountable as a child. Prosthetic arms she could not deal with, Etc. So why ever have a child and force him to also go through all that pain? Very selfish! I also, feel for the children with odd limbs and who were in terrible accidents, but I personally cannot deal with disfigured folks. It grosses me out and scares me andhas since childhood. Yes it sounds mean. And I have tried hard to change so I no linger feel that way. Missing limbs doesnt gross me out only weird ones. However, I think unless It happened to me or someone I already loved, there is no changeing how I feel, sorry. And I blame the mother for armless boy having to suffer. Not the others parents of course
If you could see the you that I see when I see you seeing me, you'd see yourself so differently, believe me-

Actually, I think this kid in the wheelchair has excellent communication skills!!
Especially for his age. (Certainly better than most high school and college graduates these days!)
 
I doubt they could have found a better spokesperson.
 
Who knows, maybe in a few years, we'll see him again in an "Ironsides" TV Show re-boot.
 
Or even better, modern medicine will find the cure.

More stuff to make you feel like a turd. Not as bad as the weep fests for St. Jude's. They even have Captain Sully as a spokesman. Not to be cold hearted but, with Isis, scary clowns (Hillary and Trump) and fascist Political Correctness and the Kartrashians. We need these like a bad case of the Hershey Squirts (diarrhea). Throw in those animal abuse commercials and holy sh*t.
I approve this message.

I can't even watch the animal commercials.  I can't reach the remote fast enough.

If they could figure out how to get that thing off of him, they could probably make a meal out of it.

Maybe cut it up with some vegetables in a stew.

Yes I know, I'm a horrible person.



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Barely a snack.  Doesn't look like there's much meat on those bones.
 
I wonder if that thing has a dick.

The legs are skinny, but the rump and that wing-like thing look like there's enough meat there to make a pot of stew out of.

If they could not only cut it off of him, but get him to grow a new one, say once a week, he could keep a small family reasonably well fed.

If not, they'll just have to start cutting his real limbs off for that stew.  Sort of harvest him.  Probably in whatever third world hellhole it is that they live, one arm is good for weeks of good eatin'.

SAME HERE! Recently I was on the bowl (LALing) and one of them came on with cats. I'm owned by a loveable psychotic Tortie cat. Ran out with mants around my ankles. To get to remote and tripped, (my coordination sucks under normal circumstances). Missed crashing into my desk and knocking over my laptop by inches and point of impact would have been my "jewels!"

And, I always thought I held the title of sickest puppy! You guys have me laughing my ass off literally! Not to worry, if that cow Hillary gets elected he will be welcomed into the US of A with open arms. However there are gormands that would love to chomp on special needs kiddie body parts. If Donald wins he will be the poster child for whatever tirade he's on at the moment. If the Donald lets him in maybe out of the goodness of his heart he would hook him up with a limber blonde bimbo for many "trips around the world complete with happy endings!"

On a lighter note, the kid in the picture had an operation in 2010 and had the thing removed. Aside from a bit of a scar, he looks normal now.



Don't know if his family got to eat the meat, though.
