Hoax of the Day
John Goodman dead at 53

TV star John Goodman dead at 53.

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) - Actor John Goodman, star of such hits as Monsters Inc and Beyond the Sea, found dead today in his home. Cause of death is not known.

Recently seen in the Kevin Spacey epik Beyond the Sea, Goodman was deemed in fine health by his doctor just three days ago. Cause of death is not yet known, but it is suspected natural causes.

Goodman was most notably known as the blue-collar patriarch Dan Conner on the hit TV show Roseanne. Goodman also lent his vocal talents to such films as The Emperor's New Groove and Mosnters Inc, as well as being a semi-regular guest on Saturday Night Live.

With a talent as large as his girth, Goodman proved himself both a distinguished character actor and an engaging leading man. A native of St. Louis, MO, Goodman went to Southwestern Missouri University on a football scholarship. An injury compelled his to seek out a less strenuous major, however. He chose the university's drama department and graduated as a drama major.

He is survived by his wife Annabeth and his daughter Molly.


Wow! Fake news sure travels fast! This, obviously, is not a true story. but, boy did it fly around the internet yesterday!

first of all, it's riddled with mistakes. granted the AP usually has mistakes and typos...but epik? i mean, seriously!

Also, if you look at the actual URL, the story doesn't live on the servers. it was just a prank. but, it certainly was clever!
