HUNTER S. THOMPSON GETS BLOWN OUT OF A CANNON
There was a big party tonight out at Hunter S. Thompson's ranch in Colorado. The writer apparently had a wish to have his ashes shot out of a cannon after his death. I'm not really sure of the significance of having his ashes shot out of a cannon....but this IS Hunter S. Thompson we're talking about. The 'why' part doesn't matter. And now, of course, he is dead....he killed himself earlier this year....he was apparently having problems dealing with his declining health and wanted to leave the world in his own way.
So who's making sure that Hunter S. Thompson is getting his ashes shot out of a cannon, just as he always wanted?
"We had talked a couple of times about his last wishes to be shot out of a cannon of his own design," [Johnny] Depp told The Associated Press last month. "All I'm doing is trying to make sure his last wish comes true. I just want to send my pal out the way he wants to go out."
Johnny Depp is hot, he's talented, AND he's a loyal BFF to the very end. Evolution has succeeded: the perfect man has been achieved.
