I know this has probably been discussed before still I was wondering what everybody would wish as their epitaph?

Mine would have to be "it's me, I confess". That should keep people guessing for some time.

"Barkeep, another round."

Three words that I utter every weekend at the local bar after the girlfriend and I pay off rent/bills. It's almost become my trademark phrase.

Epitaph?

I'm torn between...

Quote:
The report of my death was an exaggeration.

...and...

Quote:

Baby, if you've ever wondered,
Wondered whatever became of me,
I'm living on the air in Cincinnati,
Cincinnati, WKRP.

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking,
Town to town and up and down the dial
Maybe you and me were never meant to be,
But baby think of me once in awhile.

I'm at WKRP in Cincinnati.

The object of life is not to arrive at the grave intact and in a well preserved body; but rather to skid in sideways, broken down and well used, screaming "Holy shit! What a ride!"..... and it was!!!!!

One of my all time favorites was "I Told You I Was Sick".

After my last few years of medical treatments I would really like "1944 - 2044"

Or "Wake Me For Meals".

You shouldn't have posted on the internet, then.

It's not at all unlikely that the a.net forums will survive us all in backup copies at Google and in other archives.
