Going Out With a Bang

Hunter S. Thompson took his last ride over the weekend:

With a deafening boom, the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson were blown into the sky amid fireworks late Saturday as relatives and a star-studded crowd bid an irreverent farewell to the founder of "gonzo journalism."

As the ashes erupted from a tower, red, white, blue and green fireworks lit up the sky over Thompson's mountain home in Woody Creek near Aspen, Colorado.

The 15-storey tower was modeled after Thompson's personal logo: a clenched fist rising from the hilt of a dagger.

Uh, guys? That's not a fist. I mean, it's supposed to be a fist, on top there, but it looks more like, um... Anyway, I'm sure Thompson would be proud of it.

Here it is looking more like a fist, but also more like the Eye of Sauron (compare). I think the green thing is supposed to be a peyote button.

Now here are the sort of trappings you need at any funeral: blow up dolls!

Entire circus brought to you by the letters L, S, and D, and the tasteless, disgusting, hilarious wretches at Huffington's Toast.
