Those of you connected to the Interwebitwitterspheriverse may recall that following the deaths of Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson last Thursday, there was a much-tweeted hoax that Jeff Goldblum had died. Well, on last night’s “Colbert Report,” Goldblum appeared in person to address the news of his death.
It’s a pretty solid clip, and I like the idea of giving your own eulogy — I think that could be even better than attending your own funeral à la Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Not that I ever read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Books are for queers. The only explanation for how I even know that reference is that I accidentally learned it by osmosis when I used a hardcover copy to beat up a nerd. That’s what you get for reading, wuss!
