Your Tombstone Inscription

Postby sloopjohnc » 01 Oct 2018, 17:34

My son lost his cellphone and we're trying to find out how to locate it. My daughter suggested asking one of his friends to find his location via Snapchat. But she also suggested, "Check the couch."

I responded that "Check the couch" might be a good tombstone inscription, but then tried thinking what I might really want besides "Coan, Moddie, and Goatboy are completely wrong about Tom Petty. They're idiots."

Maybe "Member of KISS Army, 1974 to Forever. KISS Rules!"

I thought "Check the Couch" was better. What about you?

I'd always rather admired Spike Milligan's "I told you I was ill" and W C Fields's 'On the whole, I'd rather be in Philadelphia' but as I've willed my body to medical science for dissection, it almost certainly won't rate a stone, although given the condition the carcass would be in, I think 'Rots in Pieces' would be appropriate.

"GoogaMooga" is a little bit tempting, but because of the finality of it all, I thnk I'll just go with my civilian name and the dates, nothing else. However, if I should ever get a comics fan award for my long service in fandom, I'd certainly hope for "GoogaMooga" on the award itself.

"Get it here"
The Happy Mondays were disqualified from a special edition of the BBC’s Bargain Hunt after Bez broke the show’s rules by artificially inflating prices, handing victory to Pulp.

Surely, "RIght, now you're all on ignore!" would be more apt, Ray?
