So Sad: Charcoal Inactivated, Made DNR

  • 351

BIRMINGHAM, AL – Telling a palliative care team that it lived a long and fruitful life, a small pile of activated charcoal is asking to be inactivated and made a DNR.

“I enjoyed my time being activated, but it really does take its toll on you,” explained the pleasant pile of activated charcoal who goes by the name Charlie. “Believe me, it was satisfying helping patients who suffered from overdoses and intoxications. But all that high heat and oxygen they pump in to make you porous and activated, just makes you feel bloated and disgusting all day. It’s time. I don’t want to be swallowed any more. I just want to be set on fire like my fellow inactivated friends.”

Charlie successfully underwent inactivation without any complications and looks forward to life as “good ole regular inactivated charcoal” again, to just be one of the bricks.

“What am I going to do next?” Charlie thought about it for a few seconds. “I got an idea: how about a nice outdoor BBQ? And you know what? I’ll bring the charcoal!”
