He died laughing

“A story can always end happily by stopping at a cheerful moment.  Of course in nature the only end is death, but death hardly ever happens when people are at their best.  That is why we like tragedies.  They show men ending energetically with their wits about them and deserving to do it.” – Alasdair Gray, Lanark
