Raymond Alan “Big Al” Brownley, who recently died at 82, did not like the Kardashians. In fact, he "despised" them so much that it was pointed out in his obituary in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. That obituary, which has gone viral, also lists a number of other things "Big Al" didn't like, including "cranberry sauce, wearing shorts, cigarette butts in his driveway, oatmeal," and "loud-mouth know-it-alls," Time reports.

What did he like? His wife, his kids, his dogs, his homemade chili, and Gas-X. He was also "highly proficient at cursing"; indeed, one such word is spelled out in the obit. Among his favorite sayings was "life is hard, but it’s harder if you’re stupid." Despite all this, he was "a pussy cat at heart," the obituary notes. Read the whole thing here.
