Anti-drug activists give up


Actually missed it by a day, but good ol' Keef turned 60 yesterday (http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/fridayreview/story/0,12102,1099640,00.html)

I'll raise a bottle of Jack and a carton of smokes to many more.


Wonder how many people lost their "Keith Richards will never make it to 60" bets yesterday?
Hell, how many people lost their "Keith Richards will never make it to 40" bets in 1983?

I thought it was funny on NPR's "Morning Edition" yesterday when Bob Edwards was rattling off birthdays at the top of the hour and mentioned "commoner Keith Richards turns 60 today." :)

... and he doesn't look a day over 95.

So, when can we crumble Kieth Richards up and smoke him?

Keith's been dead for 20 years already. The cocaine just hasn't worn off yet.

It's pronounced Kayth. :)

It should be apparent to all that Keef can't be killed by conventional means.

Conventional or chemical, it would seem.

So what will it take, I wonder?

Either black magic or some sort of area 51 reversed engineered alien weapon...or a 1920's style death ray.

It should be phrased had he lived, Keith Richards would have been 60.
