The Oscar Wilde quote.

"Either that wallpaper goes, or I do." - Oscar Wilde, his dying words as spoken while lying in bed in a Paris hotel room

Jenipher and I are debating the legitimacy of this. I say that, if anyone could've said something that clever on their deathbed, I'm betting Oscar Wilde could do it.

Jenipher said this:

I like my theory better, where there's just some random person hanging out in the room writing down witty things he might say.

"I'm dying of a life-threatening disease of which there is no form of treatment at the turn of the century. I'm in pain! I'm now going to say something clever! Hey, you, write this down!"

Anyone else have an idea?
