That is about the most bizarre thing I have ever read and I have been a fan of this blog for forever.

I read that story a few days ago. Loved the idea!
Just a side note: when my mom passed away earlier this year, my sister and I wanted to publish an obituary. We were just stunned at the price. It was something like $7 per line of 14 characters (including spaces). So the modest write up we had was over $350.

The worlds most interesting man? Can't wait for the movie to come out.

Thank you blog for sharing funny stuff with us for all these years

"The sea was angry that day..."

It was fit to be tide.

You guys talking about Bill Brasky? I know Bill Brasky!

"The sea was angry that day, my friends... Like an old man trying to send back soup at a deli."

-George Costanza

"The sea was angry that day he decided to circumnavigate the globe in a small Cessna. He was not a pilot, but the grappa had him. On the way to his car he was abducted by a female bigfoot and forced to stay with her for a year before he could escape and make his way to the airport.

"This day the sea was REALLY angry. It was so angry it had awakened a slumbering kracken..."

-----buy another bottle of grappa for access to the next chapter.

No word on whether Frank N. Stein will be attending the funeral?

DB Cooper?

I want to attend the Celebration of his life!

I feel extremely inadequate compared to this guy.

RIP, Baron Stein von Munchausen.

Hey - that’s my life story. I wonder if we ever met.

Hell, I don't think he's dead--sounds like a great conman couple movie!

A life well-lived, and obviously well-loved with family. We should all be so lucky.

Was he the inspiration for the HEY MON skits on "in Living Color?" (geezer reference)
