1[About working as a coroner's assistant in his youth] "Mainly I discovered that I'm not afraid of death, but I'm afraid of dying too young. I want my son to bury me, and I want to be mummified and have my body put in the wall. I just don't want to rot. I want to be preserved in a mausoleum behind glass with both my middle fingers up with a disco ball above my head. I wouldn't charge people admission. That would be my last gift to the world."
