Albuquerque Newspaper Runs Breaking Bad Obituary

"It provides some of us some closure."

New Mexico science teacher David Lyman and fellow members of a Breaking Bad Facebook fan group purchased a death notice that ran today in the Albuquerque Journal.

 

Lyman told the paper that the gesture "provides some of us some closure."

It shouldn't, though. Because Walter White is not dead.
