Well, he just had to do it. My old friend and fellow bunkmate on the S.S.
Kennedy let himself over-indulge in uptaking cholesterol and fatty acids and
now it's all over for him.

Fair sailing Willie, my friend.
In my eyes you still had an honorable death.
But a soldier never really dies.

Be nice to his eldest son. One day he will go off to college, but in the
mean time he is Willie's heir and now the owner of NBS Electronics. I'm sure
he will keep the family tradition, that is, until he goes off to college.
We'll miss you Willie. Dammit partner, you could've been more discreet with
what you ate, sheesh.

In the words of Abe Lincoln, I pray Thank God, there's one less pervert
among us.
He's no fun. He fell right over.

Goodbye goodbye goodbye
Don't let the surgeons muck you up, but if they do, realize there's a karma
thing. BTW, you might want to request that they surgically remove Lupi's
lips from your ass while they're at it. You may have a little more dignity
that way. Sorry you're on you way out, but that's the breaks, my friend.

Is this true? Fat Willie passed away in the last few days?
Wooooh!

Of course it's true, you read it on the Internet didn't you?

Naw, the only thing I passed was some gas.
I named it Elvis Paisely. It was offended.

Dang! You could have had a "Paul is dead" thing going.

This whole thread was in EXTREMELY poor taste. A new low.

"Take a powder" - wow, that's an oldie (1930's?). What's the
origin of that expression?

As in face powder? Headache powder? Hmmmm.

Make up.
It's a line in one of the
old gangster movies, where the men wanted to discuss
business so they told the "ladies" to "take a powder".
Or in other words go to the powder room.

I believe it was a Cagney line but I am not sure.

What a SICK thread. And what a slimy thing to do. One thing Abe
Lincoln actually DID say, and I paraphrase: The way a man treats his
enemies tells you a lot about how he treats his friends...

I could go on at some length, because I just has a for real death in
the family, and DO NOT FIND THIS SHIT AMUSING! - but I won't except to
note that the author of this thread definitely falls into the 'cloacal
proclivities' AND 'gets out of the shower to take a leak' categories.

It was a beautiful funeral, very moving. LV was buried him in a vintage
Ampeg SVT 8x10 cab with the baffles knocked out, lined with Vox diamond
grill cloth, just had to lay him on his side and fold his knees a little,
and six t-shirted roadies carried him to his final rest. And I had no idea
the Rev. Mr. Marshall was an ordained minister, who knew? And how nice of
him to come all the way from England to perform the service. The floral
arrangements were actually made with burnt-out tubes and different colors of
speaker wire, very striking. There was even a choir, and when they cut
loose through that enormous Altec Lansing PA system, well my years are still
ringing, and you don't normally expect threshold shift at a funeral. The
tombstone is a stunning replica of a '65 Fender Twin Reverb in pink granite,
and when you push a button on the side a hidden speaker plays a selection of
political rants he recorded at some point, it's as if he is speaking to you
from beyond, it's enough to bring a tear to the eye. The only sour note was
seeing them installing the waterproofing, apparently they expect certain
"left wingers" to sneak in at night to urinate on the grave, some people
just insist on having the last word. I don't know if LV's final wish --
that a bank of charged filter caps be wired up to the grave so anyone so
urinating has a surprise coming -- will be carried out, but I understand it
would be a good joke.

Sadly, some imposter has already assumed the Lord Valve name and is
pretending to be the real LV, people just have no shame.

I always thought it referred to Bromo-Seltzer which since it contained
bromide could act as a sort of sedative. In fact around the turn of
the century there were Bromo-Seltzer addicts that hung out at
pharmacies drinking Bromo-Seltzers one after another till they were
thrown out for being intoxicated. It was considered a scourge of
America at the time. matt

Well just for that you aren't invited to the wake. And we have a big cake

have wanted it that way.

Interesting.

Long ago, Bayer (the aspirin people) sold heroin over the counter as a cough
medicine! See: http://www.a1b2c3.com/drugs/opi004.htm

And most patent medicines contained tincture of opium, coca extract,
and other hard drugs. I have an old book from the 1880's called The
Encyclopedia of Knowledge (I can't remember the name for sure) that
had the recipes for the more popular OTC medications. They all
contained opiates, coca, extract of cannabis, or other drugs along
with copious amounts of alcohol. Of course this book had a lot of
bogus info like the flying speed of a duck being 600MPH or using a new
clean nail to puncture the amniotic sac during birth. matt
