Leslie Nielsen's gravestone: 'Let 'er rip'
Only now, though, are we finding out how committed this guy was to getting a laugh.
On Thursday (June 2), the Sun-Sentinel published this photo of Nielsen's gravestone:
Simple and understated, with a killer punchline: "Let 'er rip." Nielsen had, according to TMZ, requested it years before his death. Big ups to his family for honoring his wishes.
A bench facing the actor/comedian's headstone is also inscribed with this Nielsen quote: "Sit down whenever you can."
Recently, we got another glimmer of a celebrity's strong personality from beyond the grave when -- as specified in her will -- Elizabeth Taylor showed up 15 minutes late to her own funeral.
