When you go, make sure to make a statement


The above obituary was actually published in the Chicago Tribute recently and blogged on BoingBoing. Read it closely. When I finally die, I now have three wishes.

  • Have a party, and hang the banner "So long, and thanks for all the fish" above my urn.

  • Take my ashes to Yankee Stadium and a game against the Red Sox, wait for a critical play in the outfield, and dump my ashes on the unsuspecting Sox outfielder, allowing me to help my Yanks even in death.

  • Make sure the highlighted line above appears in my obituary.

You just have to love the passion that would make someone want to print such a comment! And he gets to make one last political statement....
