There seem to be a lot of variations of this out there:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely in
an attractive and well-preserved body, but
rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in
one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly
used up, totally worn out and screaming
"WOO HOO what a ride!"

I found one that is attributed to journalist Hunter
S. Thompson and I am curious.

Does anyone know if this is the original?

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely in a pretty
and well preserved body, but rather to skid
in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly
used up, totally worn out, and loudly
proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
--Hunter S. Thompson

Other variations I found:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely in an
attractive and well preserved body, but rather
to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand,

margarita in the other, body thoroughly used
up, totally worn out and screaming ~ WOO HOO
what a ride!"

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely in an attractive
and well preserved body, but rather to skid in
sideways, chocolate in one hand, glass of wine in
the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn
out and screaming ~ WOO HOO what a ride!"

"I refuse to tiptoe timidly through life only
to arrive safely at death! Life should NOT
be a journey to the grave with the intention
of arriving safely in an attractive and well
preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
clutch lever in one hand - throttle in the
other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn
out and screaming, "WOO HOO! What a Ride!"

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely in an
attractive and well preserved body, but rather
to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand -
strawberries in the other - body thoroughly
used up, totally worn out, and screaming -
WOO HOO! What a Ride!

"Life is not a journey to the grave with
intentions of arriving safely in a pretty
well-preserved body, but rather to skid in
broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn
out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a
ride!"

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely in a pretty
and well-preserved body, but rather to skid
in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn
out, and loudly proclaiming WOW---What A Ride!

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely in an
attractive and well preserved body, but rather
the goal is to skid in sideways, champagne in
one hand - strawberries in the other, screaming
....YAHOOO! That was bitchin!"

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely and in one
pretty piece, but to slide in broadside,
thoroughly used up, worn out, and defiantly
yelling "Geronimo"!
