Hey, George Clooney isn't Dead

I'm really getting tired of writing about death, whether it actually happened or some group of losers decided to start a rumor that it happened. But I'm going to anyway. The latest is that George Clooney died. Sources say:

For some reason, some seriously messed up people at fakeawish.com dropped some evil rumors that Clooney was the latest star to croak this week ... and now, we've learned the fake stories have caused some serious concern within his circles.

TMZ spoke with Clooney's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, who told us he's been bombarded by frantic calls from legitimate media outlets and some of Clooney's friends who were genuinely shaken by reports of Clooney's death.

This is starting to make me want to start a rumor of my own. Maybe Matthew Perry died in a boating accident or Tom Arnold was hit by a bus in South America? Then again, I should pick someone who people might care about. Forget it.
