I extracted this from a recent Savannah obituary.

"He was equal parts puckish and perspicacious. Despite finishing undergraduate school at the University of Alabama in only eleven years, he still managed to earn a 2-point something GPA, all while holding down a rewarding social life and pursuing various entrepreneurial endeavors. While his politics were unexpectedly conservative and his affiliation with Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity quite successfully cemented, he became a leading student activist during the troubles of the 60's. .........................He also dabbled in breeding and trading Tennessee walking horses, which, he learned the hard way, was not a suitable calling. As a businessman he put people first and never compromised his integrity. He combined hard work and Rabelaisian excess, and believed any good idea could be made better, more fun and more inclusive. A raconteur, political scientist and a student of obscure and piquant vocabulary, he loved good food, drink, music, theater, salt, bourbon and smokes. He was of barrel chest, and capable throughout his life of peeing a quart, but his best health was always of his spirit. His family history is checkered, unless one counts his large family of friends and admirers."

Okay, before this interesting thread slips into oblivion, let me post a modest entry for Best Obituary:

Sorry, it contains further material at the end - perhaps only for Tom Lehrer fans (you know who you are!)

Not an obituary, but......it has been 50 years since the death of Marilyn Monroe. Enjoy some of her best clips.

Tom invented the Jello Shot. That alone is enough to put you down in the annals of history!

Further proof that cat lovers tend to be non-conformists. Like this guy.
