Gordon Bennett: i don't quite see him as trolling. I do think he was quite possibly a genuine Asperger's Syndrome sufferer. His work was innovative and very clever.

farkingismybusiness: I really liked Man On the Moon. Borderline JEEEENyus.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Mugato: Never got Andy Kaufman. Maybe the same reason I don't get why people troll on message boards.Me neither. I've never understood the "OMGZ he was a JEEEENyus!!!" crowd.

Peaceboy: I don't know how accurate the film was, but the scene at the end when he went to the Philippines for a miracle cure, is laying down looking around, and realizes it's all some bogus faith-healing scam... then starts laughing, and it morphs into his own dead body laying in his casket at his funeral... if he got scammed like that, like Springsteen said, "there's a joke here somewhere and it's on me." That scene freaked me the hell out.

Mugato: I don't get why people troll on message boards.
