I like this observation from one of the YouTube Commenters. I think we can all learn from him as to how to deal with such a tragic event:

"Shit happens. Sometimes a dog will be loose in a hospital and eat your transplant organs."

I had an unpleasant encounter with a Randroid a few years back, such narcissistic smugness and casual sociopathy I have yet to witness again, I ended up laughing heartily in his face like he'd just told me the punchline to the funniest joke in history, he hated that. :D

Judging by the above, this flick looks like it's going to be for Objectivism what "Battlefield Earth" was for $cientology, a recruitment tool backfire of epic proportions.

Tonight (Tuesday) at 10pm--2am Pacific time on the Coast to Coast talk radio show:

"Professor Stephen Braude will discuss his lifelong interest in the paranormal, including examples of psychokinesis and evidence for the survival of death."

The clip was hilarious. I love the Golden Retriever. What a fun dog! It was an actual pigs heart. I wonder where they got it? Probably from a local slaughterhouse?

I used to work in an abbatoir and dropped out of college for a few years and worked as a meat cutter. After going back to school and graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in Animal Science I worked for about 20 years in biomedical research before retiring.

"The clip was hilarious."

I think it gives new meaning to the expression, "The dog ate my homework."

I mean, I've heard of eating your heart out, but ...

"Shit happens. Sometimes a dog will be loose in a hospital and eat your transplant organs."

Words to live by, Bruce. Just the other day, I watched in dismay as a chihuahua chowed down on a freshly donated spleen.

I also like the fact that the heart is being carried in a Styrofoam box with no latch or clasp.

That was hilarious.

I hate myself, but I found that hilarious.

Roger, thanks for the heads up.

I'm not a Randian, nor have I played one on tv. Heck, I didn't even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. I'm sure, though, there are fans of Ayn who display that "narcissistic smugness and casual sociopathy" which the commenter above experienced.

But when I read those words, the image which instantly came unbidden to my mind was not that of an Objectivist, but rather a "Scientismist" in full bellow, supremely unaware of all those motes and beams.

If that was satire, that is hte greatest joke in the history of television!

(But I'm afraid it was actually supposed to be serious...)

No. Tell me it ain't so. It couldn't have been serious. It's just too funny.

It's like something Joss Whedon would have written.

I agree with this YouTube poster---->

"Wtf.....how the fuck could something stupid like that happen, why the fuck is there a dog in the hospital? Why the fuck, WHY THE FUCK??! Going to explode raging on the stupidity that is the writers of that show.
I'd fucking kill that dog! Unrealistic or not! Why the fuck would there be a guy waiting for his heart in the lobby? Why is it the guy isn't even holding onto the leash anymore? No one even stops the dog! GOD DAMN I AM GOING TO BE IRRITATED FOR SO LONG!!! "

I guess I was wrong when I called One Tree Hill a "now-canceled series." I just saw it in the TV listings.

Somehow this thing is still ON ....?

Michael, maybe it's supposed to be funny?

Well, the poor dog probably hadn't had a good hearty meal for weeks.

Oh and thank goodness it wasn't a heart AND lung transplant. That would've been just too much to swallow.

Apologies in advance.

The blond guy looks like he wandered off the set of a daytime soap opera. He almost looks smug about the whole thing. No shock, only a slight move toward the dog, and then a long, deep peering into the eyes of this dude that is gonna die now.

Somehow the guy who tripped over the dog's leash must have also needed urgent medical care since he couldn't move for several seconds after falling.

Your intro made it twice as funny.

I checked with Google News and learned that not only is "One Tree Hill" still on, it has been renewed for an eighth season!

Ya gotta hand it to 'em - their show has heart!

"Somehow the guy who tripped over the dog's leash must have also needed urgent medical care since he couldn't move for several seconds after falling."

He was stunned into immobility by the inanity of the script.
