Count Gottfried von Bismarck, who was found dead on Monday aged 44, was a louche German aristocrat with a multi-faceted history as a pleasure-seeking heroin addict, hell-raising alcoholic, flamboyant waster and a reckless and extravagant host of homosexual orgies.

see, what pisses me off is that _myh_ obituary is not giong to be anywhere nearly as interesting as that.

mr wsv, father of two and computer programmer, died last night after a particularly energetic piece of debugging.

he was not a louche German aristocrat with a multi-faceted history as a pleasure-seeking heroin addict, hell-raising alcoholic, flamboyant waster and a reckless and extravagant host of homosexual orgies.

but he might have been given the chance.

A good and loving father, husband, and programmer died today. He did more good in his short life than the heroin addicted aristocrat would do in a dozen.

hah. didn't notice that.

I also quite like "When not clad in the lederhosen of his homeland, he cultivated an air of sophisticated complexity by appearing in women's clothes, set off by lipstick and fishnet stockings."

must have been a fun article to write.

the same strict regard for the truth that describes this woman as a "striking beauty".

Well, if you'd been struck in the head repeatedly with sharkfish's 13 inch purple dildo, that might be a great beauty.  Otherwise, I'm not seeing it.

Damn, what an obit.  And I learned a new word today: Louche.
