Randolph Hearst and big question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
There's a new biography of Randolph Hearst out. Essentially, it says everything we think we knew about him was wrong. I heard the author on NPR's ""On the Media" this morning.

One thing he said in passing was that the famous movie supposedly about his life, "Citizen Kane," probably better described Orson Wells' life.

So, the question. You probably know that Kane's last word was "Rosebud," the name of his sled when he was just a boy. So...what do you think your last word might be?

My boyfriend says he doesn't know what his last word would be but his epitaph would say, "He was a nice guy, but..."

Last words are interesting. Didn't Jefferson say, "Adam lives!" not knowing that Adams died the same day?

My wife says she figures hers will be, "Oooops."

Oooops?

I don't know about that Jefferson factoid.... but if so that would be very interesting.

I haven't the first clue as to what my last words will be, but one of the funniest lines I ever heard, well read, actually, came from Jeff Foxworthy of "you might be a redneck..." fame:

Q: What's the most common last words spoken by a redneck?


A: "Y'all watch this!"

Citizen Kane was a good movie but how the heck did they know his last words were Rosebud when he was alone?

Kelly - I love that joke!

I got it backwards. John Adams last words were, "Jefferson survives."

Jefferson's last words are disputed, but the most common given are, "Is it the Fourth?" (Both men died on July 4, 1826, the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.)
