Dick

I looked up the German artist Martin Kippenberger online, wanting to see what he died from (morbid? Who, me? Noooo!), and what did I see as a beautiful punctuation to his brief biography but the word "Dick" - go on, click on the pic below for a larger image and see for yourself! I pondered the possibility that it might be written by a guy named Richard, who felt like getting some recognition for his insights. But no, something tells me that isn't the case.

Anyhow, as you can see, it turned out he died from liver cancer due to heavy drinking.
