Following the rumors that Stig O'Hara was dead, and that Dirk McQuickly was secretly deaf, Barry Wom attempted to spread his own rumor in 1969 that he was also dead. In reality, Barry had spent the year in bed, as a tax dodge.

In 2011, Barry released Barry Wom Really is Dead: The Lunchtime Testament Of Barry Wom, a response to Stig O'Hara Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of Ron Nasty, in which he attempted to remind everyone that he also is supposed to be dead. He then tried to spin numerous ideas as per what happened, including that he was replaced by a man named Joe Public.
