    Drawn in by the alluring title... surprised by the Haiku. Put a smile on my face, so thanks for that!

    This was inspired by an old joke about three men talking about how they wanted to die. The first one wanted to be a race car driver and die in a flaming accident. The second wanted to die in glory on a batllefield. The Frenchman: Shot by a jealous husband at ninety years old!

    Not a completely original thought (if anything is). It was sort of the punchline of funny story/joke.
