William Hung Not Dead Yet
image I've noted before how popular celebrity death hoaxes have become. In fact, it's kind of like a weird sign of status for a celebrity to have their death falsely reported. It shows people care, in a sick and twisted way. Britney still leads the pack, having been killed in car crashes many times, but now American Idol anti-star William Hung has joined this elite group of prematurely-reported-dead celebrities. Reports of his death via heroin overdose have been spreading all around the internet. They originated from a faux-news piece on Broken Newz. His suicide note was particularly touching: "I have no reason of living... my art which is my importance to the best everybody laugh to... I make end here... goodbye world of cruel." (via David Emery's Urban Legends and Folklore)

I HOPE THERE ARE MORE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE IN MCKINNEY, TEXAS THAN YOU----AND YOU WOULDN'T KNOW A PHRASE FROM THE 80'S LIKE A HOLE IN YOUR ASS (AND YOU DO SEEM LIKE YOU HAVE A HOLE IN YOUR ASS IF YOU GET MY DRIFT!)
Posted by Nikki Harden  on  Tue Mar 22, 2005  at  03:24 PM
Stephen may not "know a phrase from the 80's like a hole in your ass" (whatever that means), but Nikki is obviously well acquainted with the caps lock key.

YES!!!!! there we go. That was good! That one was kinda original, kinda vulgar, and showed anger. I luv it!!! You need to come in here more often...

Posted by Nikki  on  Tue Mar 22, 2005  at  03:33 PM

I think she has feelings for me!!! I tend to do that to women.
Posted by X  in  McKinney, TX  on  Tue Mar 22, 2005  at  03:59 PM
So, Stephen, you've discovered that your power has limits!!!

I actually wouldn't mind letting other people help moderate comments on the main page, but I haven't been able to figure out how to let them do that without simultaneously giving them the power to delete the entire site, which kind of scares me.
Posted by The Curator  in  San Diego  on  Tue Mar 22, 2005  at  04:13 PM
Ha, I can understand that. Especialy with people you have never met. Thats alot of trust to give someone.
Posted by X  in  McKinney, TX  on  Tue Mar 22, 2005  at  04:15 PM
It's an especially scary power to give to Stephen. He really frightens me.

My only question at this point (besides what my neighbor's kid is doing to that cat outside) is...

What's his middle name? It'd be kinda funny if it was Benjamin or something....

Willie B. Hung

YOU'RE RIGHT, STEPHEN!!! YOU TURN ME ALL THE WAY ON TO THE POINT WHERE I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MYSELF. I WANT YOU SO BAD; CAN YOU SENSE MY ENTHUSIASM?!!?!
