20+ Spicy Gems From The Legendary Anthony Bourdain

The world lost a champion of the senses today. Anthony Bourdain, celebrated Chef, author and television personality, took his own life early this morning in Strasbourg, France. Bourdain was no stranger to life's seemingly infinite struggles - he had coped with addiction earlier in his career - and perhaps that was why his utter revelry global food and culture felt so goddamn real. 

Bourdain was very vocal in his support for the underrepresented - from Harvey Weinstein's accusers (including his girlfriend, Asia Argento) to marginalized populations of third world countries. He opened peoples eyes, ears, and taste buds in a way not many people can share. His wisdom was not reserved to this egalitarian warmth - the rock and roll boozehound had a keen wit and a filter thinner than cheesecloth. We've put together a collection of some of his best quotes - from sassy tweets to inspirational rants. 

Anthony, we're gonna miss you.

Woman's Savage Viral Obituary Is Blowing Twitter's Mind

The inevitability of death is something that all humans share - regardless of politics or religion. Another would be the fact that most of us want to be remembered positively. Obituaries are one way in which those who have passed can be semi-immortalized, and are generally reserved to vague pleasantries and celebrations. Every now and then, however, there is an exception. The shockingly shade-filled obituary of Kathleen Dehmlow falls into this category. 

Twitter user @RandBallsStu was first to notice the scathing, five-paragraph obituary. The obit starts off innocently enough, detailing her birth, marriage, and the birth of her first two children. That's when things get weird. Apparently, Dehmlow became pregnant by her brother-in-law and moved to Califonia - leaving her children Jay and Gina to be raised by her parents. The account becomes more bitter from there, leaving us to assume that Jay and Gina might have had something to do with the publication. 

@RandBallsStu's tweet quickly went viral, with other Twitter users expressing their shock - and glee - at the hate-filled death notice.
