Default Andy Kaufman Alive?!

http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...234/726q1.html

If it's true, then all I have to say is WOW. Although, it does sound like something he would do. I also read it on a few other forums.

Wow ... "Andy Kaufman faked his own death 20 years ago and has returned, alive and well. DNA tests prove that this is indeed the real Kaufman and not another hoax. Some fans are outraged, others are just glad to know the legendary comic is alive."

I'm not really buying it... it's not on CNN.com or NYTimes.com or any other major news site...

If it were true, wouldn't this be all over the newspapers and TVs?

It would be cool if it were real, but it seems too good to be true

I've been a fan of Kaufman for a while, (yeah before the movie came out )
I dont know if I can believe this.. I wonder why it isnt on other sites, and I also wonder why his "official" blog is on blogspot.com... a free service, if it were him do you think he would have a more legitimate website?

What hit me the most was that it has been 20 years since 1984! LOL

No really it is a little hard to believe that it is him.


Like Attila said:

I am a big fan and it would be great if it was, BUT it is hard to believe.

The company that put out the press release that Yahoo got that from is emediawire.

That wire service has since pulled the story.
