Respectful Insolence

Saturday YouTube: Support Organ Donation

This reminds me of what the result might be were Monty Python to do a public service announcement encouraging organ donation, except Monty Python would have done it in drag rather than using a real female:

    Thank you, Orac. That was silly, but it got folks to stay long enough for the appeal. This one hits so close to home it is IN my home. One of my children is a kidney recipient, my husband the donor.

    Please, sign your organ donor card/license. Talk with your friends, families, lobby for a good “presumed donor” law.

    Go to http://www.organdonor.gov

    Please.

    Thank you so much for posting it!!!!! You are great! Perhaps I should have dressed up as a man dressing in drag, huh?! ;) (Having mental flashes of the “we’ve come to get your liver” scene! LOL) The little dork “dancing” in the background of those first shots is my little liver recipient, two liver transplants in 2000 and now going strong. Thanks for your help!!!! :)

    I suggest using Fizzies [OK, so I am dating myself, how about Pop Rocks?] and Red Bull for your next one, and give the organs WINGS!

    Virginia Postrel donated a kidney, and does a lot of really smart thinking on the issue:

    ..including musings on organs for pay.
