Keith Richards snorted his dad

In an interview with the British music magazine NME, Keith Richards, the legendary Rolling Stone's guitarist and world's foremost taunter of death, admitted he marked his father's passing by grinding Bert Richard's cremated ashes up with some cocaine and doing his thing.

Richards didn't think his dad, who died in 2002, would have minded, and claimed the mix of stimulant and father went down pretty well.

Since I have my own questionable history with things that don't traditionally go up your nose, I'm not one to criticize Keif's choice in inhalants.

In fact, when I think about it, it's a fine tribute to the man who brought him into the world. It's common to hear people express a want to have their ashes sprinkled over the Grand Canyon -- or somewhere else awe-inspiring and timeless.

Really, what could be more awe-inspiring and timeless than Keith Richard's nasal cavity?
