Apart from enjoying the obvious faux pas by some Mexican obit writer, did you actually read the article? You can see in there that this dude wrote "Daydream Believer" for the Monkees. At this moment I'm sort of hoping he's in Hell, because now I've got that damn song in my head and its gonna be there for days.

a guy's whole career boiled down to a song he wrote for a kitchy televsion group . . .I fully expect that the lead sentence in Neil Diamond's obit will say he wrote "I'm a Believer" for the Monkees...

Carole King and Gerry Goffin could do worse than to have "Pleasant Valley Sunday" mentioned in the first paragraph of their obits. I'm just sayin'.

Living your life with an eye towards the obituary is probably not a bad idea, as Vincent Gruppuso, 67, Seller of Pudding Snacks can tell you.

(Another life lesson: if you are, in fact, a dying Seller of Pudding Snacks, you should try to time your death so as to not share the obituary page with Sir Edmund Hillary.)
