The proof is in the pudding ... out

Or "putting out"

Or maybe "putting in"?

Ok. I'll stop.

But here is a wierd story from London which inspired these bad puns. Seems a dying 22-year old man living in a hospice in London had a dying wish: he wanted to get laid.

Enter ... not the Make a Wish Foundation (thank heavens) ... but ... this is even better ... a "Christian"-run hospice he lives in. They helped him make the arrangements with a prostitute who specializes in ... umm ... recreational therapy ... for the disabled.

But here is the ... well ... climax of the article as far as I am concerned:
"It was not emotionally fulfilling, but the lady was very pleasant and very understanding. I do not know whether I would do it again. I would much rather find a girlfriend, but I have to be realistic."
Gee. Relationship-free orgasms are not emotionally fulfilling? Sounds like this poor bloke is now less handicapped than an awful lot of people living in this country today. He gets it: Sex divorced from commitment and emotion is just a pleasing muscle spasm. Nothing more. And not particularly human.

Oh, and about that "Christian" Hospice ...
"It is not our job to make moral decisions for our guests. We came to the conclusion that it was our duty of care to support Nick emotionally and to help ensure his physical safety."
I thought the Hospice Movement was about the whollistic care of the dying, not just their "physical safety." I guess Sister Frances does not worry about emotional trauma to the dying ... so why run a hospice at all? Just drug 'em and pocket the difference, since morals and emotional health are not in play.
