Maybe they'll bury him at sea.

Laugh-A-Lympics?

That's such a weird one to bring up! Do people remember that?

Aquaman was my favorite superhero when I was a lad . . .

It's truly a loss. He was the last of the creators of the big DC heroes, and it's no secret... the creator of my favorite one. Aquaman. As far as being buried at sea... I can think of no greater honor. It's where my Dad is, and it's where I want to end up.

Dr. Monkey-
Seems very appropriate.

John-
I certainly do. I can remember getting up early every Sunday morning to watch the shitty Hannah Barbara cartoons they showed on USA if I remember correctly. Sigh...why doesn't anyone show Herculoids anymore?

Scurvy-
I thought of you as soon as I read this story. Being burried at sea does seem like a wonderful final resting place.
