Here lies Ezekiel Aikle, Age 102, The Good Die Young.

So what are we supposed to make of Walt Whitman's last words: "Hold me up; I want to shit"? And how about Dylan Thomas' dying declaration: "I've had eighteen straight whiskeys. I think that's the record"? What last words would you want recorded for posterity? (via a & l daily).
