In Sad News Today...

This is what I would expect to see upon reading a 'celebrity' obituary.  It appears, however, with Count Gottfried von Bismarck, this was not the case.

von Bismarck is the great-great-great grandson of Otto von Bismarck, the "Iron Chancellor". Gottfried apparently passed sometime in April of this year. I learned about it from a peer and found this 'obituary' written about him. Sadly(?), it is quite hysterical. An award should be given to this writer.

From the Telegraph:
Count Gottfried von Bismarck, who was found dead on Monday aged 44, was a louche German aristocrat with a multi-faceted history as a pleasure-seeking heroin addict, hell-raising alcoholic, flamboyantwaster and a reckless and extravagant host of homosexual orgies.
