You'd think Thompson would've gone out in a more fantastic sort of fashion.

I think that we should edit Mr. Hunter S. Thompson's obit a bit. Instead of "Shot himself to death" howzabout we go with one of the following:

  • Shot by secret service when he tried to infiltrate a CPAC rally.
  • Gunned down by South American gun lords for being 'overly agressive' during drug aquisition negotiations.
  • Killed in a shootout with Reno police when, upon hearing the awful Led Zepplin cover band music playing a casino, he went crazy, shooting the PA system. "He was frothing at the mouth", said one officer.
  • Killed by fall in Las Vegas: "He didn't pay attention to the instructions to put on his safety harness on the coaster.", says official of the stratosphere.
  • Killed by drowning, during Cruise to antiqua. "I've never seen anyone so determined to retrieve a pill bottle.", said lifeguard, "He hit me!"


Anyhow, feel free to comment with your own suggestions!
