  • Andy Kaufman ALIVE

    Apparently Andy Kaufman has just pulled the greatest practical joke of all time. 20 years ago today he faked his own death. He has come out of hiding and confirmed his identity by giving DNA, hair and blood samples, and fingerprints. You can read about it here:

    http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...234/726q1.html

    He has also launched a blog, which is available here:

    This quote was particularly humorous:

    I told them about the statute of limitations (7 years) on faking ones death, but they persisted and said they have "other ways of getting to me."

          Or maybe he wanted us to think it was a hoax...

              Who knows what to believe. The hoax can be a hoax. Unless, the hoax of a hoax is the hoax.

                I might have believed that for half a microsecond if the Yahoo article didn't look like it were written by a caffeinated 7th grader.

                If you want your fake news to be believable, it helps to learn how to write a news article that reads like a news article.

                  Yup, then you can join CNN, NBC or ABC and really warp the facts and get paid well for it.

                    Let us not forget the NY Times. If you fake news there, you get book deals after they fire you.

                      Just don't think or writing anything Pro-America while you work there, you'll be branded and they'll never do a movie about your life.

                              If he was still alive, it would not be the biggest hoax of all time, it would be the biggest disappointment of all time.. I always found him damn annoying..
