Chemist, Albert Hofmann, who was pronounced dead back in 1978 at 72 and then was again pronounced dead in 1989 at 83 and once again was pronounced dead in 2001 at 95, was once again pronounced dead this week at 102 years old.

Since it is very difficult to tell, as proved by his previous three errant death notices, whether Mr. Hofmann is actually dead or taking a long "trip", we are not going to officially announce his demise for at least another year. He has never stayed "dead" for more than a year up to this point.

He had been "dead" for almost a year before proving everyone wrong in 1978. Luckily, he had been placed in a Mausoleum, where a person visiting thier relative who had died and was placed next to Mr. Hofmann, heard the pounding on the wall next to her and alerted authorities.

Each year he died after that, in 1989 and in 2001, his remains were placed near a security guard who sits at the cemetery entrance and could hear any pounding coming from the wall of his coffin.

This precaution will also be taken at his "possible" death this week at 102.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
