Quiz – Caesar’s last words were [according to Our Will]:
a] Thought something was off about that kipper;
b] Wot, doancha luv me no more?
c] Et tu, Messaline?
d] Ya missed, nyah-nyah n nyah nyah!
The Beeb has a quiz on famous people’s last words and of course, there are books about the topic.
Here are some more:
# My design is to make what haste I can to be gone.
# This is no time for making new enemies.
# More light!
# Die, my dear Doctor? That’s the last thing I shall do.
Have you thought though about your own last words? I don’t mean your epitaph inscribed on the rubbish skip into which you’ve been dumped by James Bond. I mean that if you have even a fraction of a second and it does look like curtains, then you utter it [after much rehearsal through the previous decades].
Mine is easy, so many have used it:
Lord, into Thy hands I commend my Spirit.
Any idea who said that one? And what would yours be? “Oh b***er” … ?
