I want to know more about this newspaper that prints the exact time of death in its obituary columns.

Bob Guppy, died October 7, 4:32 and -- wait for it -- OK, seventeen seconds!

That newspaper editor is very very thorough.

Wait! I get it! It's a clue from beyond the grave! She knew she was going to be rubbed out! Ha ha ha!
