  1. The problem with Arthur’s picture post is that “you’re” and “your” sound identical, especially whispered by some bony dome. It would only work if Death was given to passing ritten notes.

  2. ‘Thomas de Mahy, marquis de Favras (March 26, 1744 – February 19, 1790) was a French aristocrat and supporter of the House of Bourbon during the French Revolution. Often seen as a martyr of the Royalist cause, Favras was executed for his part in “planning against the people of France” and is known for saying “I see that you have made three spelling mistakes” upon reading his death sentence warrant.’

  3. Actually, only famous if someone heard and understood. For example, no one knows what the famous Red Baron’s last words were. Just that he said them in German to an American soldier.

  4. @ bobpeters61 – The same thing happened to Einstein: he said something in German, but the nurse was an American, and did not understand what it meant.
