I’m sure there are many of you who remember this scene from Monty Python’s “The Meaning of LIfe”

[Mr Brown answers the door of his home to find two men dressed in white labcoats.]
Labcoat #1: Hello. Uh… can we have your liver?
Mr Brown: What?
Labcoat #1: Your liver. It’s a large, uh… glandular organ in your abdomen.
[Mr Brown just stares at the labcoated men.]
Labcoat #1: You know, it’s, uh… it’s reddish-brown; it’s sort of, uh…
Mr Brown: Yeah, y-yeah, I know what it is, but… I’m using it! I…
[The labcoated men push into the house. The second man holds Mr Brown against the wall.]
Labcoat #2: Go on, sir! Don’t muck us up, now!
[The first labcoated man searches him and pulls out a card.]
Labcoat #1: Hel-lo! What’s this, then?
Mr Brown: A liver donor’s card.
Labcoat #1: Need we say more?
Labcoat #2: No!
Mr Brown: Listen! I can’t give it to you now. It says, ‘in the event of death’. Uh. Oh! Ah. Ah. Eh.
Labcoat #1: No one who has ever had their liver taken out by us has survived.
Mr Brown: Agh.
Labcoat #2: Just lie there, sir. It won’t take a minute.
[The Labcoats remove and break Mr Brown’s liver.]
Mr. Brown: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
Labcoat #1: Zip it up.

Well, if Peter Kormos (a member of Ontario’s provincial legislature) has his way, events like that may just happen in Ontario. Why’s that, you ask? Well, this article in the Toronto Star explains it much better than I possibly could. Thankfully, private members bills (that is, bills not introduced by the government) RARELY pass.

If this legislation passes I want Kormos’ organs to go right to the top of the list – he’ll still be able to annoy the piss out of me with half a liver, one lung and one kidney.
