Christopher Hitchens – Obituaries

(In the future) This page will serve as a list of all obituaries about the late Christopher Eric Hitchens (13 April 1949 – 15 December 2011).

My personal favourite:

“He and I went to a pub to celebrate his most recent intellectual victory over the establishment press. I intimated that sometimes women could be funny on purpose. Even back then, the thought enraged him. Hitchens threw a drink in my face, pressed a lit cigarette into my neck, and hit me over the head with a barstool. The next thing I knew, it was two days later and I was lying hogtied and naked beside the M5.”
