No Respect for the Dead: Jack LaLanne (1914-2011)
"I can't afford to die. It would ruin my image." ~Jack LaLanne, noted fitness guru, juice aficionado, and all around nut died last night at the age of 96. The official cause of death was complications due to pneumonia. He had too much juice in his lungs. It is one of fate's cruelest jokes that the epitome of health, nutrition and fitness didn't live to be 100. Sadly, he never got to live his ultimate fantasy, which was to punch Richard Simmons in the balls.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time, but it's a safe bet that Jack will be carrying his own casket.
