Not so newsworthy BBC Wednesdays?

So I'm sitting here at work, bored out of my mind yet not motivated enough to actually do my work (ah, that old magic feeling,) so I decided to waste some time by taking a look at the "latest headlines" in my Firefox browser.

I audibly gasped and dramatically sprang to attention when I saw the following headline:
Haider 'Drunk' in Fatal Car Crash

...because I thought they were referring to Jon Heder (of Napoleon Dynamite and Blades of Glory Fame).

Before reading the article (which would make sense,) I googled "John Heder" and saw that the sixth hit is "NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (John Heder) DIES IN A CAR WRECK." I freaked out, told a few people, meditated on how the world was never really ready for his genius, and then clicked on the BBC artcle.

As it turns out, Austrian politician Joerg Heder, not Jon Heder, was drunk during his fatal car crash last Saturday in Klagenfurt (baha, Klagenfurt!).

I probably should have realized that the article from google was fake seeing how this was the accompanying photo:
Photobucket

Woops, I totally told a few co-workers that Jon Heder died in a drunk driving accident. This is like the time I told everyone John Basedow (of Fitness Made Simple Fame) died in the Tsunami.

I also had no idea I felt so passionately about Jon Heder. After my co-worker asked what's wrong I sort of just made inaudible moaning noises for a while before getting out, "JON HEDER DIED IN A DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT! I THOUGHT HE WAS A MORMON!"


I think we can all share a collective "phew" now.

Sorry for the delay with today's post. I was all prepared to write an entertaining post about how Breckin Meyer is supremely underrated, but then I fell asleep. Having a real person job takes it out of me. Thank God today's the last day in that case! Oh, and I'll be live blogging for the Project Runway finale tonight!

B-list actors' deaths tend not to make BBC News.

However, a right-wing Austrian politician who expressed sympathy with Nazi policies, and whose death may unite the Austrian far-right is totally newsworthy.

There will be no voice acted version due to the fact that the original voice actors would be way too expensive and a fan version would destroy the immersion.
