Here lie most of the biggest remaining chunks of David Malki !

With reference to today’s comic — a few weeks ago, Boston hosted a marathon epitaph-writing session between myself, Joey & Emily, Ryan, Randall, and Kris. Some of my favorites (that I can remember):

~ Here lies Emily Horne, or at least her most recent host body
~ Here lies Joey Comeau, or at least someone wearing his face
~ Here lies Randall Munroe and the items his atoms have been fused with
~ Here lies Ryan North, PROVEN WRONG FOR ONCE
~ Here lies Kris Straub / 1979-2004, 2005, 2007, 2010
~ David Malki ! / 1980-2005 / 2010-

What’s your epitaph? Leave a comment and share!

    I’d like to include a reference to some as-of-yet-but-surely-will-be developed technology, just so that at some point somebody would say “All this time we’d believed that transporters didn’t exist until the early 2100′s, and yet HERE is a tombstone where the guy died from a routine transporter accident in 2010!”.
    You know, just to fuck with the future historians and all.

    “You may be wondering why this is relevant to you. It’s quite simple really; most people are only really remembers for a few decades after they death at best before slipping into obscurity. I wish to avoid this fate, and still be talked about for centuries or even millenia to come.”

    “To that end I have constructed twelve nuclear warheads and positioned them in orbit. In 48 hours one [figure holds up one finger] of these missiles will be fired at one of twelve major cities.”

    * A list of twelve cities including Tokyo, Paris, Moscow, Los Angeles, etc are displayed with approximate populations, and also Latitude-Longitude. *
