    I think faking your death (or faking faking your death) would be considered a "social issue", no?

    Possibly. I guess I would have put it in Current Events, this way people who don't frequent PRSI would see it an comment on it.


    That said, I think Andy is living next door to his good friend Elvis.

    No, no, no. Andy's real brother is allegedly using Andy's fake daughter (a real theater student) to fake her fake father's fake death.

    Unless the allegation is fake.

    :eek:

    That's not his daughter. It's an actress.

    http://www.nbcnews.com/entertainmen...backpedals-faked-death-story-takes-2D11591254

    "Since the video was published online, reports have surfaced that the woman posing as Andy Kaufman's daughter is in fact Alexandra Tatarsky, a 23-year-old actress. The Smoking Gun cites an anonymous source who says Michael met Tatarsky while she was working at an Andy Kaufman-themed exhibit at the Maccarone Gallery in Manhattan, entitled, "On Creating Reality." That's where Kaufman recruited Tatarsky to play the role of the comedian's daughter, the site reports."

    I started reading that Smoking Gun article and I think the "ilerminaty" was trying to shut down my interwebz. Here is why.

    Help me, the Ilerminaty is breaking my internet computational device.

    I think the fact Andy talked so much about faking his death before he actually died, it's created this myth he's still alive. People gather every year on his birthday and his brother I think is just having a joke here himself. Keeps the legend alive I suppose lol.

    Perhaps if he is indeed alive, this may bring Jerry Lawler out of retirement to have one last wrestling match with him. :D

    Kaufman loved to troll people and was the king of anti-comedy. If he pulled this off I would actually be amused.

    I actually half-believe he knew he was going to die but decided to pull a last prank with his family and close friends to keep speculation alive. Yea even to the point of telling them to pull stuns like this (present his "offspring") at the occasions 20 or 30 years after his death. Trolling from the "great beyond". :D
