Famous last words. Some favorites:
"Get these f*cking nuns away from me." - Norman Douglas.
"I'd hate to die twice. It's so boring." - Richard Feynman.
"Dammit... Don't you dare ask God to help me." - Joan Crawford.
"Thank God. I'm tired of being the funniest person in the room." - Del Close.
(And don't even get me started on Chicago comedy legend Del Close's post-mortem adventures. I feel like every other thing I write for the Bastion is about the man's skull.)
