‘Match Game’s’ Brett Somers dies at 83

I am frequently mocked for my obituary posts. They are frequently about media personalities, particularly those that figured prominently into game shows. I have no good defense to this attack.

Somewhere in the afterlife, they’re having one hell of a _________.
