Did You Know?


He was buried in the same grave as his wife who had died before him. The epitaph on their tombstone reads (in "Unwinese"): "Reunitey in the heavenly-bode. Deep joy!". See more »


Famous for speaking "Unwinese", a made-up language in which English words are mangled so that the exact words are gibberish, but intonation of the sentences and the sound of the "words" makes the meaning perfectly clear.
