The tragic news that the world is this morning poorer to the tune of one pair of 38DD breasts has moved netizens to honour Anna Nicole Smith in time-honoured web tradition.

RIP Anna Nicole SmithFirst up, try "The official Anna Nicole Smith dies website", which tearfully declares: "May angels guide u on ur path to heaven to see ur son and that old dude u killed."

This heartfelt sentiment has, naturally, already provoked a flurry of comments, including "She was the greatest living human of all time. R.I.P. you sweet angel of my heart", "Taken from us before she was poor enough to do hardcore :( RIP", xxx and "But how much of her will actually be able to organic enough to decompose?"

Bless. The Photoshop crowd, meanwhile, wasted no time in mobilising its silicone implant filter, as the photo shown above demonstrates, while net wags got busy with defacing the Anna Nicole Wikipedia entry, which is now locked down against further fiddling.

Anna Nicole Smith on WikipediaAnd in case you were wondering whether the period of international mourning for Ms Smith will affect the relentless march of capitalism, fear not. Down at eBay, you can snap up a pair of Anna Nicole Smith autographed red panties or, touchingly, a memorial Anna Nicole Smith fridge magnet which is "great for car, tool box, refrigerator, any smooth steel surface".

Yes, hard as it is, life must go on. We'll leave the final word on tragic Anna Nicole Smith to one fan who was moved to post: "Sweet noble Anna, the 39 short years you spent with us seemed like 3,900. Which, coincidentally, was your cholesterol level." ®
