While Casey Kasem‘s been tossed around like a goddamn rag doll between his wife and kids, what a lot of people probably don’t know is he had an exact medical directive to put him out of his misery if he ever became said rag doll. Via TMZ:

Casey’s kids tell TMZ … their dad’s health directive document states, “If the extension of my life would result in mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope for normal functioning, then I do not desire any form of life-sustaining procedures, including nutrition and hydration.”

And so last week, Casey’s kids were finally able to fulfill their father’s wishes because it should be every child’s duty to Old Yeller their parents, but sadly, we’ve gotten away from that as a country. I blame McDonald’s. People reports:

“Early this Father’s Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends,” Kerri Kasem wrote. “Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken. Thank you for all your love, support and prayers. The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our Dad. With love, Kerri, Mike and Julie.”

And so rests Casey Kasem, the iconic voice of American Top 40, Shaggy from Scooby Doo, and Robin whenever Batman and Robin would show up making me lose my five-year-old shit. He also married a woman with really big tits who turned out to be an absolute meat-throwing nightmare that hid him from his kids which he’d probably do all over again because this is why God puts on Earth.

    ‘“If the extension of my life would result in mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope for normal functioning, then I do not desire any form of life-sustaining procedures, including nutrition and hydration.”’

    Thanks for posting this….now I know what to put in my will. Hopefully someone will listen.

    • Never At Fault

      Evidently it won’t help, if your money-grubbing wife has anything
      to say about it. I hope she rots in some prison over playing
      “hide the meal ticket” the past 6 months. His poor kids.

  2. “Those meddling kids” finally got to see their father again and let him pass the way he should have.

  3. Dying on Father’s Day, too – the man really had a great sense of timing.

    ‘I never trusted him, he’s an arab!’

  5. Deacon Jones

    Can’t forget the Ghostbusters cameo appearance….

    And yes, I’d still do his wife

    • People also forget he was the voice of Alexander Cabot III in Josie and the Pussycats. Hey, remember that special when they met the gang from Scooby-Doo? Kasem did double-duty, but I’ll bet he got paid the same as everyone else, those cheapskates at Hanna-Barbera.

  6. Scooby Doo

    Rorry Raggy.

  7. Slappy Magoo

    I remember when he announced that he wouldn’t do the voice of Shaggy any more because the ay he and Scooby would binge on snacks whenever they could promoted bad eating habits…

    You know, as opposed to the sugar-coated chocolate-covered carb-bombs (“Part of a healthy breakfat!”) that were always promoted in the commercials DURING the program.

    And yes, I’d eat a whole box of Cocoa Pebbles again given the opportunity and the insulin.

    She was so good in Night at the Roxbury.

    In protest against the animal industry, we have to stand up and let people know why it is that we don’t eat cheese and we don’t drink milk. Besides the fact it’s not healthy for you, how very unhealthy it is for those animals who have just become products. They are not beings anymore in the eyes of the people that produce them. And this goes on and on and on. For all kinds of animals. Not to mention the ones that are being experimented upon. So, this is my priority. I feel that if I can nothing else in life, but can turn a few people around, I can do a lot to help the animals in their tortured lives.

    Sad to see someone who lived with decency and compassion pass away.

    • Yes, I’m sure his wife would agree it’s far better to pass on milk and cheese and go directly to lobbing a hefty chunk of the animal itself at his daughter. Dad sends his love!

  10. I would bet he got the idea for the Top 40 from looking at his wife’s breasts.
