famous last words

over the weekend, i saw this in a cemetery. when my time finally comes, i'd love to leave behind words like this. words that make even a stranger laugh out loud and smile days later, thinking that the deceased must have really been quite a gal.

That is funny. I once saw one for Hannah. It read: She did what she could. I have always wondered about that.

Very Funny. I found that it is apparently a translation from Irish from Spike Milligan's epitaph.
I also love Groucho Marx's "Excuse me, I can't stand up" (he only suggested it, it doesn't actually appear on his grave)
