IRQ12: So what's the death toll for people who have been on the celebrity rehab show?


Wow, it's 5.  One per season, good job Drew!

spentmiles: Bit'O'Gristle: Didn't wanna leave the dog alone huh? Bullshiat. I had to shoot one of my dogs, and it was the hardest thing i have ever had to do. I think it was more "her spirit will be with me" than she didnt want the dog to be alone, as SOMEONE would have taken it. Thank god her kids werent there, she would have offed them too.

Hard for you maybe.  Like Mindy, I grew up on a farm where death, probably more so than life, was part of the daily routine.  Some animal was either too sick to go on, or more often, we had too many already.  I remember standing behind the barn cat with a hammer as she gave birth.  Then one of our mules got tangled up in some barbed wire and all I had was a cattle prod.  It took forever and stunk like all get out.  For my birthday one year, all of our chickens came down with some sort of avian flu.  My back hurt from lugging around the weed whacker all day.  Was it fun?  At first.  But then it was just work.  That's farm living, I suppose.

I've never been happier than the day after my folks passed away in their sleep and I was free from that griding existence.  I herded all the horses and goats and pigs and everything else into the huge aluminum equipment barn and chained the doors.  They said you could see the smoke and hear the animals all the way in town.  I guess you get a little callous living around animals like that, but somebody's got to do it.

Jesus God, Leatherface, haven't we killed you 11 or 30 times by now. Die MF'r Die!

And leave them goldang chickens alone. They wasn't sick. They was just tired.

IRQ12: So what's the death toll for people who have been on the celebrity rehab show?


I think the CNN article said 5, but they were counting Rodney King in that total.

Also maybe the dog wanted steak and she felt that was too good for the dog.

/Already bought my ticket to hell a long time before Fark.

Walker: We're lucky she didn't shoot the kids with that kind of logic.

"She didn't want to leave the dog alone"
Because there's no one else on Earth who could have taken the dog. Right.


The kids were less likely to eat her body. Not completely out of the question, sure, but less likely.

carnifex2005: IRQ12: So what's the death toll for people who have been on the celebrity rehab show?

She's the fifth.


I think she's the only suicide though.  The others were mostly relapses and OD, or another related health problem; like Jeff Conaway  kept getting back on painkillers due to multiple back surgeries, and he eventually died of pneumonia, but his addiction to painkillers may have prevented him from realizing how sick he was with pneumonia and getting the necessary treatment.

Biatch shot her dog, depriving the cops of the pleasure of blasting it.

The real question is, why did she hate cops?

2013-02-19 05:56:21 PM  

sethen320: The correct answer is she didn't.

The evil guns jumped up and killed everyone by themselves. It was probably a semi-automatic military style AK-47 made by Glock, with black paint.


And laser sight.

"Mindy really loved her dog and that would not have been an act of malice at all," the pal insisted. "It would have been more of a case where she just didn't want to leave the dog alone."

She was worried about the dog being alone, but not worried about leaving her children alone.  That is one big boatload of mental illness right there.

Elzar: "A true suicide is a paced, disciplined certainty. People pontificate, "Suicide is selfishness." Career churchmen like Pater go a step further and call in a cowardly assault on the living. Oafs argue this specious line for varying reason: to evade fingers of blame, to impress one's audience with one's mental fiber, to vent anger, or just because one lacks the necessary suffering to sympathize. Cowardice is nothing to do with it - suicide takes considerable courage. Japanese have the right idea. No, what's selfish is to demand another to endure an intolerable existence, just to spare families, friends, and enemies a bit of soul-searching. The only selfishness lies in ruining strangers' days by forcing 'em to witness a grotesqueness."

A human can be responsible for themselves and move on

Someone who is this depressed may see taking care of there pet as the only reason that they can make it to the next day, then one day they crash and realize there beloved companion will only be there for so long and just cant deal with life any more. Then they take the next step, they remove that final connection to they can go in peace

Children are more likely to be cared for by relatives.  The dog might just be sent to a shelter.

cryinoutloud: CapeFearCadaver: I'm thinking that having them taken away is what set her off to begin with. Could be wrong, however.
Nor do I think her kids are feeling lucky at the moment, but whatever.

Her boyfriend killed himself in the same house not more a couple of months ago.  I'm thinking that didn't help her a bit.


I think she found the proof that the dog killed the boyfriend and shot it.  Then realized no one would ever believe her, so she shot herself.

Indeed.  Kind of reminds me of that Super Bowl commercial with Paul Harvey.

Anderson's Pooper: She didn't commit suicide, she was broke and out of dog food and didn't want the poor pup to go hungry.


And then she shot herself because she felt bad after finding a can of dog food behind the hamburger helper?

quatchi: "This was at least her third attempt [at suicide]," said the insider. "She is finally at peace."

Third times the charm?

"Mindy really loved her dog and that would not have been an act of malice at all," the pal insisted. "It would have been more of a case where she just didn't want to leave the dog alone."

She probably thought she and the dog would get into heaven together like some Earl Hamner Jr. written episode of Twilight Zone.


That makes you at least 30 years older than I might otherwise have guessed.

I was already smiling when I saw your (own) color pop up but by the time I hit the hammer/cat sentence, salad had shot out of my nose and the vinaigrette burns like fire.

So, thanks!


The hammer/cat sentence was the one that made me guffaw as well.

I have never favorited spentmiles, and I never will. The reason is King Haggard's. " I like to watch them. They fill me with joy. The first I felt it I thought I was going to die. I said to Drew Curtis I must have them, all of them, all there are. For nothing makes me happy but their shining and their grace. So Drew Curtis caught them. Each time I see spentmiles quotes, it is like that morning in the main page and I am truly young, in spite of myself."

As I scroll down a page, I don't always read a poster's name, although certain threads I feel like he will show up. And then as I read some preposterous tale, I look up and realize what I have just read.

I am certain it was a practice shot.  She wanted to make sure the gun would function and that the shot would kill.  At that level of despair there's no symbolic gestures, just the intense desire to do the job and end the pain.

Lenny_da_Hog: Did she leave her dishes dirty in the sink? It's important.


My great uncle Ebby didn't. He washed the dishes, dried them and put them away. Then he took his shotgun and blew his brains out over the kitchen sink. His brother (who had been his constant companion and best friend since they were little) had just died of lung cancer, and Ebby couldn't go on without him. So he cleaned up their house as best he could, and (I guess) decided that shooting his brains out over the kitchen sink would be the easiest to clean up for whoever found his body. I wondered why he didn't just go out into a field or barn or something, but I suppose he wanted to be in the home he'd lived in for decades before he died. Or he didn't want coyotes or wolves to eat his corpse. It was a closed-casket double funeral for both my great uncles. Tragic, but beautiful at the same time.

/not a troll, this actually happened.

Not only did she kill her dog, she left her youngest child with 0 parents.  The child's father killed himself in January.   This was such a selfish thing to do.  If she believed her child could survive without her, why not the dog?

 because unlike the daughter, the dog lacked the opposable thumbs to off itself.

 mindy obviously felt she and the father had already more than succeeded in gifting the daughter with all the genetic and psychological tools to do the job to herself. the dog, however, needed some help.
