I know it sounds odd to write a blog about something that DIDN’T happen. But, here we are 2/3 of the way through another Celebrity Death Trifecta, when BIG news broke about Eddie Murphy! If you believe Twitter, he just made #3 on this CDT of actors:
According to Global Associated News (NOT a reputable source):
“Actor Eddie Murphy is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today – February 3, 2012. The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Eddie Murphy lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.”
This is the THIRD time Twitter has posted an Eddie obit! Rest assured, he’s OK. It was all a hoax! All of this reminded me of a classic bit from Saturday Night Live. Do you remember the day Buckwheat Bought The Farm?
