God, if you re-animated Cobain you'd never hear the end of "how awesome he is" from all the idiot hipsters.

Reanimation? Not enough corpse there for that.

You could clone Cobain, but then he wouldn't have Kurt's life experiences and would probably be a talented singer who would have a few minor hits before disappearing into obscurity before drug addiction forced him to travel around with a Nirvana cover band to earn cash.

You wouldn't want to curse anyone with all of Kurt's memories. Some serious demons in there. On the other hand, it's part of what made him so good at what he did for the brief period he was with us.

I would have gone with Streisand but none of you punks on my lawn would have gotten it.

I'm sure he meant Curt Kobain.

Obviously, he was referring to Curdt Kobain.

Richards looks like the end result of a meth lab.

Makes as much sense as anything to do with religion - that is none at all.

I like to believe they aren't dead - just clawing at the insides of their coffins.

True. You lose the punch when you have to explain the joke.

We should bring back the original Paul McCartney.

What about Generalissimo Francisco Franco? Still dead? I MUST KNOW!!

FTFA: "Astronomers have a lot to learn about white dwarfs, starting with the stars' plasma exterior, since that is the only part directly visible through a telescope."

That's true as far as it goes, but the really interesting stuff is what happens under the photosphere.

Why did they use a painting of the Z Machine? It looks much cooler running.

So... Tupac?

Trick question, Tupac never died.

What did Michael Jackson get for his first Christmas in the afterlife?

Patrick Swayze.

Hipsters would cream themselves if Cobain returned from the dead. And I would make it my mission in life to kill him.

Trust me I ain't no hipster.

How could you hate this?

The headline makes it sound as if someone went out and fetched a dying star, brought it back to the lab, and coaxed it back to life

Anyway, I'd love to have a job like this, just for those rare, "So what kind of work do you do?" questions.

"I make stars."

"No, I am not Simon Farking Cowell!"
