Wanna Live Forever? Become A Noun

Joseph Guillotin, Henry Shrapnel and Jules Leotard became immortal -- by entering the English language. But NPR's Robert Krulwich and Adam Cole discover that when your entire life is reduced to a single definition, the results are sometimes upsetting.

This is a really entertaining animated video which shows that although immortality is often desired (at the very least through your name) then you may not always get exactly what you anticipated.

As they say, when the gods wish to punish us they give us what we want!
