Full Title: He Enjoyed Booze, Guns, Cars, and Younger Women Until the Day He Died: Unrepentant Obituary Deemed Best Ever
Michael Flathead Blanchards obituary, published in the Denver Post on April 12, bears little resemblance to the standard in memoriam.
Penned by Blanchard before his death, the obituary notes, among other things, that Blanchard was weary of reading obituaries noting someones courageous battle with death. Rather, he wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors orders and raising hell for more than six decades.
He enjoyed booze, guns, cars, and younger women until the day he died.

Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.
1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.
google baba yaga (the deceased had mentioned it in the obit.)
Tells you this guy was into the occult.
I Googled it too. I got the impression that the deceased hated the occult from his statement. Why would he tell Baba to kiss his butt if he was into it?
Or it’s an ex-wife.
baba yaga is also in superhero comic books. tells you nothing.
I did my due diligence. I searched for the full title of the article and nothing came up. I also searched the writers name. I got nothing, so I posted.
I’m with Lazlo, “Baba Yaga can kiss his butt”. He didn’t like a phony hippy guru
Searching by full title is futile. One word is all you really needed: obituary.
Reminds me of a FReeper a long time ago recalling the death of his hell raising uncle who died in his arms with the last words of “God, that was fun!”
Hard not to like a guy called “Flathead” with a son named “Chopper.”
This dude does seem like the type that I wouldn’t mind spending time at the bar with. I bet he was full of stories.
why would he say a superhero could kiss his butt?
Makes no sense.
why would you tell someone who does not exist (if you don’t believe in the occult) to kiss you butt?
Chopper was his pet cat.
Same reason I do.
Batman is very annoying.
Sounds like someone I would have liked to know.
Baba Yaga was from Slavic folklore. She is nowhere an object of worship. Most likely the name is his derisive nickname for some obnoxious elderly female relative.
Could be a reference to his ex-wife. Baba Yaga was a witch in the Slavic areas of the world.
Thanks Lazlo in PA, additional:
If you are an American, and you know who baba yaga is, either your family is slavic, or you are into the occult. I bet the latter.
Or just somebody who knows how to google "baba yaga" and look in the wiki entry. I guess that is so beyond your intellectual capabilities that you can't imagine people being able to do it.
Number 9: Избушка на курьих ножках (Баба-Яга), The Hut on Fowl's Legs (Baba-Yagá))
You are into the occult?
no, i googled it. It would never occur to someone to use the term “Baba Yaga” unless they know who Baba Yaga supposedly was.
I have seen the name referred to in works of literature, from inference, she was a witch that ate babies, had a house that walked on feet and maybe had something to do with bears.
Usually she is mentioned by Russian characters referring to her as commonly know folklore.
What is the occult connection?
