Jackie Copper...don't screw with him, even after death

Jackie Cooper was an old Hollywood actor who was nominated for an Academy Award at the age of 9. He is most famous for his role in Superman (the old one,with Christopher Reeve) as Perry White, the Editor-and-Chief of the Daily Planet. He passed away last week...cause he was old.

He had what they call a "Poison Pill" clause in his will in case anyone wanted to try to contest it after he passed. Everything would have gone to his wife, but she died 2 year now everything has to be split evenly between his four children (one from his first marriage and three from his last). The poison pill states: "I give to such persons so contesting or objecting the sum of FIVE DOLLARS ($5.00) and no more."

So basically if one of his kids tries to get more than their share they get enough to buy a latte at their local Starbucks. Ol' Jackie doesn't mess around. Love it.
