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?"

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?"
