Last week I posted the last words of some of our more famous fellow human beings involving food or drink before they died. Some of the comments indicated that more on themes like this would be appreciated and so this week's Thursday 13 is a collection of last words by unfamous people. The last words that no doubt were spoken by millions of anonymous souls before they went to meet their maker.
Most Americans die peacefully in their beds, but as I reported in I see dead people in mydeathspace, one quickly discovers that myspace habitues die violently and in some Final Destination sort of way: falling off of moving vehicles, slipping off bridges, getting stabbed, shot, and so on. One can only guess what their final words must have been.
Now while it is true that no one was around to record these ending phrases, I think that after you read them you will have to agree that these 13 do indeed sound like they very well might have been the last words of those who did not go peacefully into the night.
Some phrases are related and so I have grouped them together. In no particular order:
- Don't Worry - I've Done this a thousand times.
- What's the worst that could happen?
It should be pointed out that tens of thousands of women have asked this question just before marrying a Muslim man. Unfortunately they did not hear the answer when they were stoned, hanged, knifed, burned, or beheaded. Stoning, hanging, knifing, burning, or beheading a wife is the response Muslim men make when they are served divorce papers.
- Oh God!
and other variations of Oh X!
- What are you going to do, shoot me?
- Watch this...
- I wonder what this button does?
- Honey, what are you doing home so early?
- That's weird.
Do you smell that?
Did you hear that?
- Does he bite?
- Make me.
What are you gonna do about it?
Look at the bazooms on her!
- Allah Akbar!
