Top rejected final messages from David Bowman (spoilers)

As you probably know, in the book version of 2001: A Space Odyssey, David Bowman’s final words recorded by mission control are: “My God, it’s full of stars!”. (This excellent line didn’t make it into the movie, but it did make it into the sequel, 2010: The Year We Make Contact”.) What you don’t know is that David Bowman had some time to think about his final message, and he had a few early drafts:

  • By Thor’s Hammer, it’s replete with twinkly lights.
  • Holy shit, I could have had a V-8!
  • On the whole I’d rather be in Philadelphia.
  • O Vishnu’s titties, I am become … aaahhh.
  • I have a bad feeling about this.
  • I love you Charlie!
  • Mission Control? I’m shitting Twinkies.

As always, feel free to add any other final lines in the comments.

My god, Alltop is full of funny.
