Question:

Whose famous last words were "Either this wallpaper goes, or I do"?

Answer ->

Oscar Wilde, according to some sources. One wonders about its veracity given his deathbed conversion back to Catholicism; a priest remained with him during his last hours. Another deathbed quote attributed to Wilde; having asked for a glass of champagne, he said: "Alas, I am dying beyond my means."
