It's too late to enter Luke's Death Pool, but you can visit the previous "participants" in the game at Find a Grave. It's pretty useful, you can search by birthdate, deathdate, and by their claim to fame among other criteria. Many even have photos of the grave site like Orson Welles, Nat King Cole (died 35 years ago today), and Smokey Bear. Useful and bizarre.

This is fun. I say we all write epitaphs for ourselves. (And He said, "Let there be margins" – so cross your fingers.)

On second thought, I doubt any of us are creative enough to write funny epitaphs. I'm not, anyway.

Hey, you forgot to point out that the photo of the grave of Orson Welles was taken by a Baldwin brother!
