    Classical composer Joseph Haydn was declared dead in 1805 upon the death of his brother. He’s the one that comes to me first when we speak of people who have read their own obituary.

    How about Mikey from the 70’s Life Cereal commercial. He apparently downed a bag of “pop rocks” candy and swallowed it down with a can of soda and his stomach exploded. He is still living and doing fine.

    Groucho Marx, in a Playboy interview, said the New York Times allowed him to read his obituary, as they make up obituaries in advance. He said he offered to punch it up for them, but they declined. They should have let him do it. It would have been one of the most quoted obituaries ever.
