Haven’t done a Dead Trube Day in a little while, but this one is a bit different.
Lately I’ve been thinking about amusing last words, like the following:
“Mind that bus.”
That’s from the British show Red Dwarf. I guess the American version would be:
“Look. A drone!”
Or how about a redneck’s last words:
“Hey, watch this!”
Or in my state:
“I’m a Michigan fan!”
Personally I think it would be funny to do something along the lines of “the treasure’s buried under the…” or “I guess I can go a fourth time.” but I think if anything I’d like to go out on a non-sequitur. Like:
“Horseradish is neither a horse nor a radish.”
“Peanuts are best when shelled, then read.”
I realize I probably won’t have much say in the matter, as the timing is rather difficult. Though if I was really clever I could set up one of those time delayed posts or tweets which’ll send if I haven’t checked in for a week. But then as a writer I might feel under some obligation to write something good and not just silly.
If I was to sum it up, though, I can’t do much better than J. Michael Straczynski:
“I will see you again in the place where no shadows fall.”
Or next week.
Have a good weekend everybody. And, yes, there will be a post on Monday. I don’t mean to worry you with Dead Trube Posts. Lovers of Megatokyo know I’m just ripping off Dead Piro Days.
Got any favorite last words?
