I originally wasn’t going to blog this because it’s in very bad taste, but given the last entry Brock put up I figure we’ve already crossed that line just a tad so I may as well. Someone out there has taken it upon themselves to create Terri Schiavo’s Blog.
I have to admit that when I first saw it I couldn’t help but giggle a little, but then dark humor has been a means of dealing with painful situations in my family for years so I’m not surprised that it made me giggle. My own grandmother cracked jokes about whether or not my grandfather had pants on as he was laying in state at the funeral.
If you just look at the main page it’s probably not too horrible of a joke, but once you get into the comments left by some of the visitors it quickly goes down hill. A classic example of a if-you-thought-it-couldn’t-get-worse situation. Take that as a fair warning if you decide to check it out especially if you’re one of those types who thinks there are some topics people shouldn’t make fun of. Some of the comments are downright mean-spirited. In a way, though, I can see it as type of backlash against the media circus that has been thrown up around this issue. I’m sure there are some psychologists out there that could have a field day with it.
Anyway, blame Ted if you get upset about it. I found the link through him.
