It’s not hard to judge a man based on the last words he utters before slipping from life into that unknown void called Death.
Of course, it’s also not hard to judge a man based on his shoes or on the way he smacks his lips when eating a sandwich. Or you could judge him based on a series of triple lutzes and double axels, provided he is in fact a processional figure skater and partaking in a competition.
Let’s focus on those last words and see if we can’t actually get a sense of character from a few final quotes. There are countless compilations of “famous last words” out there in the world, but we’re not concerned with wit, irony, or even profundity. Not today, anyway. No, today we’re here to talk about some of the goddamned manliest things a man ever said right before he kicked off.
