Mourning an MB: World's Oldest Man Henry Allingham Dead at 113

Mourning an MB: World's Oldest Man Henry Allingham Dead at 113
Henry Allingham, who until Saturday was the world's oldest man, is dead at age 113. He battled the Krauts in the Battle of Jutland, outlived his wife and two children, and chalked up his longevity to "cigarettes, whisky and wild, wild women."

He obviously wasn't smoking the right cigs, drinking the right booze, or carousing with truly wild women, because if he had been he would have died long ago. Nevertheless, we heartily applaud his commitment to the finer things in life.
