    Hmmm... PR was pulled from the web site that released it, and now the blog is down to.

    That's pretty crazy. I can't believe he didn't even tell his family. I guess it probably wouldn't have stayed a secret then.

    "My mother, it was rumored, in fact, never had intercourse until several years after my birth."

    Promo move. Here is how it works.

    The owner of that blongs thinks on how to gain maximum exposure and mention in press worldwide. So he writes up a press release and pays PR WEB $80 for the news that get published on several huge sources, including Yahoo! News.

    Then an WHT user posts a link to it, CNN reporter discovers it, etc, etc...

    Best,

    If the real Andy Kaufman were back, his story would be picked up by every major news service in the U.S. and a good many abroad, not merely a single "anybody can submit a story" free publicity service. And if the real Andy Kaufman genuinely wanted to demonstrate he was still alive, just one public appearance would serve that purpose far more convincingly than an unverifiable DNA test. Most important, if the Andy Kaufman I remember the brilliant, unpredictable, erratic, and unique comic genius had finally emerged from hiding twenty years after faking his own death, I have no doubts that he'd find a much more imaginative way of revealing his return than a free press release and a rather ordinary blog.
    Well now that makes perfect sense...

    Maybe ELVIS will be back soon. A lot of people still think his death was a fake too. A lady down the street from me says she saw him at McDonalds last month odering a big bag of food.

    That's odd. I just received a notification that this thread had a response...from May 20. Took a while to arrive, I guess.

    There was a reply earlier. It was just spam for some Kaufman site. Been deleted now.

    I've got an Andy Kaufman T-shirt. I remember wearing it one time and the clerk at a store asked me about it. "You like Andy? He was a funny guy, too bad he died," and such. I told him I didn't think he was dead, and that given his personality, I believe his death was a big hoax. He sort of looked at me funny, and dismissed the thought.

    Well, looks like I wasn't so crazy after all.

    BAM!
