Any last words?

To perhaps lighten the discussions on funerals of certain famous people perhaps some famous last words that tickled your fancy.

Not quite last words but my favourites are from WC Fields

For those not old enough to know the name he was a well known actor and comedian of the 30’s & 40’s including the film My Little Chickadee with the “pneumatic” Mae West.

He was well known as a drinker, gambler, womaniser and atheist.
During his final illness a friend found him reading the Bible and asked what he was doing?

He replied “I’m looking for a loophole my boy looking for a loophole “ ;-)

Mayfield :-D
