Call it the ultimate in underground humor. For a book published earlier this year, television personality Larry King posed an unusual question to well-known public figures and celebrities: "How would you like to be remembered after your death?" More than 300 people responded to his query, providing King with the material for Remember Me When I'm Gone: The Rich and Famous Write Their Own Epitaphs and Obituaries. Last words range from actor Stacy Keach's lighthearted verse, "Here lies Stacy Keach/A Georgia peach/Lived at the beach/Now out of reach," to comedian Howie Mandell's last laugh, "Is It Me or Is it Dark In Here?"

On The Weekend Watch:A HEAP OF HAUNTINGS -- What do you bet will be the leading costume for trick-or-treaters on Halloween next week? It has to be Bart Simpson, or others from his cartoon brood. Thus it's appropriate that tonight's episode of "The Simpsons" (at 8, Channel 45) appears to be the first of an assortment of eerieseries tie-ins to the horror holiday in coming days. Tales of a haunted house scare Bart and Lisa, and there's even a recital of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven."UNWELCOME CHOICES -- The networks have done it again.

America's fascination with the O. J. Simpson trial continues, as Christopher Darden (who's also scheduled to appear later this week on "Geraldo!") takes the case for the prosecution to CNN. With so many legal experts questioning the prosecution's strategy in recent months, it could be interesting to hear what he has to say."The Sentinel" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) Lots of things go boom (to great effect) in this series about a Washington-state police officer with heightened senses that make him one mean crime-fighting machine.

I'm told it was a real hoot to watch instructors from the Downtown Athletic Club get things warmed up with Doggie Stretches.Among the walkers who helped raise more than $30,000 for the SPCA were WMAR's Sandra Pinckney and her dog, "Morley"; MIX 106 radio deejay Julie DeHarty and her dog, "Charley"; Pokey Brown and her dog, "Hannibal," who walked with pals Anne and Tom Bailliere and their dog, "Pokey"; SPCA board member Ann Clapp and her husband, Harvey, walking with their pooches, "Paul" and "George," while son David Clapp and Trini Edson from the Barclay School brought their dogs "Jake" and "Refi"; Patrice Malloy, SPCA board member and MTA marketing director, arrived with "Reggie" and "Phoebe"; and Dr. Murray Sarubin and his wife, Susan, were strutting with doggies "Kimba" and "Max."

DALLAS -- Ross Perot said just two weeks ago that he was as likely to become an active presidential candidate again as he was to leap a tall building in a single bound. Now it appears all but certain that he'll leap with both feet into the countdown days of election year '92.If voters are having a hard time getting a handle on the mercurial Texas billionaire, who's expected to announce his reborn candidacy here at a 4 p.m. press conference today, it may be because his words don't always match his actions or, in some cases, his previous words.
