Dear Jon Bon Jovi…

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Bon Jovi is one of those guy who you don’t even know you’d miss until you think (for a period of about 45 minutes yesterday thanks to this fake post that went viral) that he might be dead.

There are two things I’m taking from this latest wildly viral celebrity death hoax:

1) Bon Jovi is not dead, as proven by the picture he posted yesterday afternoon.

And…

2) I’m doing this whole internet thing all wrong.  Why blog every day trying to slowly build a fan base, increase page views and time on site, and hopefully get some respectable SEO stats than can be used to parlay my hard work and clever writing into something more, when all you really need to do post a fake random celeb death.  With all that in mind, I’d like to take a moment and say:

RIP BRONSON PINCHOT

You will be missed :(

Dear Jackie Chan…

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

False alarm!  Despite “RIP Jackie Chan” being a trending topic on twitter all day today, it was just a hoax and Jackie is alive and well!  These crazy internet pranksters — their creativity knows no bounds!  I can picture the guy behind this one… just your typical winner sitting in his mom’s basement, jerking into a tube sock and coming up with the next pointless hacky goof to play on the twitterverse in order to feel like he exerts some influence in this world beyond bossing his mom around when she effs up his grilled cheese and dressing his “girlfriend” all slutty-like in Second Life.  Yeah, a real winner.

I’d like to propose a new segment for the Oscars next year: “In Memoriam — J/K!!” It’ll be just like the regular “In Memoriam” segment, but way more fun because it’ll all be a big hoax.  I mean, come on, just ask the prankster behind this Chan gag, there’s nothing more hilarious than pretending people unexpectedly died a gruesome, sad and untimely death!
