The first anniversary of Amy Winehouse's death is fast approaching. Since I myself just turned 28, I was celebrating not making it into the "27 Club" and decided to peruse Wikipedia's entry on the concept. There is a list of musicians who've kicked the bucket before their 28th birthdays, complete with their dates and cause of death, what they're famous for, and how many days they had been 27 before they died.
While scanning the list, I noticed something strange about the entry for Amy Winehouse. Someone had edited the page to list her cause of death as "Suffocated on Pet Cat," and her fame as "Average singer-songwriter." The edit is gone now, and everything is back to normal, but here's a screen shot of the offending entry. The absurdity of it gave me a good chuckle. Poor Amy. RIP.
