Inituary, er antiobituary, er...So if the day isn't surreal enough:

Inituary - the opposite of obituary

Andy Kaufman... the opposite of comedian...

Andy Kaufman... not really dead.

Excerpt:
Andy Kaufman Returns After 20 Years

Andy Kaufman faked his own death 20 years ago and has returned, alive and well. DNA tests prove that this is indeed the real Kaufman and not another hoax. Some fans are outraged, others are just glad to know the legendary comic is alive.

Why doesn't this surprise me?

Edit: And he has his own blog now.

Andy Kaufman part 2. Revelations and disappointments

So, having been led to believe that PRWeb was actually a news distributor. When the story came across my desktop... I was willing to believe it.

After reading more about PRWeb as well as some of the journal purportedly belonging to the lately possibly not late Mr. Kaufman. I'd say this is an apropos hoax commemorating the 20th anniversary of his passing.

The story is just believable enough knowing his style and vein of humour. But, at this point... At least until pictures surface or reports pop up on a more legitimate (read corporate owned, not necessarily more honest) news site... I think we'll leave Andy in the grave.

Just in case my OTO BodyMaster's spouse is reading... ;)

This one was referred by a coworker.

The automated Panda Bear Cell Phone
Collapse )

From the site:
Are you a maverick who thinks that you have everything cool under the sun already?

You don't... Not until you get an Original Hands Free Panda Bear of your very own!!!

It may sound like something out of a Sci-Fi movie - but this is the bear that talks to you!!!

Simply plug the bear into your cell phone's hands free audio jack, pop in three double-A batteries and TADA!!! - Instant hands free Panda Bear phone!!! When the bear "talks" to you, it's head and mouth move in sync with the caller on the other end. And when you get a call, not only do you hear the ring, but it's cute panda bear LED heart lights up as well.

The little bear even has a little pocket that you keep your cell phone in (very convenient).


Here's the link.
