This comes to us by way of Washingtontimes.com in Last laugh: Marine vet fires off jokes from the grave with own obituary. The man wrote his own obituary which contained the usual did-this, did-that. But he threw in a few zingers to liven it up, so to speak. The best part comes at the end:
There will be no viewing since his wife refuses to honor his request to have him standing in the corner of the room with a glass of Jack Daniels in his hand so that he would appear natural to visitors.
Cremation will take place at the familes convenience and his ashes will be kept in an urn until they get tired of having it around. What's a Grecian Urn? Oh, about 200 drachmas a week.
Everyone who remembers him is asked to celebrate Walt's life in their own way, raising a glass of their favorite drink in his memory would be quite appropriate.
Instead of flowers, Walt would hope that you will do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for some poor unfortunate soul in his name.
What a nice last wish. What a guy. See a jpg of what appears to be an original draft here.
