There was the time that he drank a two-four, ate six jumbo bean burritos, and lit a cigarette while...anyway, if you'll remember the resulting explosion damned near destroyed about a quarter of the Tim Horton's in Blind River and got the late Shame jailed for "Suspicion of possessing illegal explosives." They finally reduced the charge to "Possession of Cigarettes by a minor" because the couldn't prove anything else -- nobody believed at the time that a 12 year old could drink that much beer.

In some ways I'm almost, but not quite, sorry he's dead. And what a way to go: stumbling drunk into a disused cesspool, coming up twice, murmuring "Mmm, mmm, GOOD!" and then going down for the last time.

I understand that at his burial the firing party shot into the coffin to make sure he damned well stayed dead.
