He's dead, and you should be thankful that he is. Otherwise he would've just kept going and most of you would be either be talking about how stale his material is now, or how his new material just doesn't measure up to the old material. He did you all a Goddamn favor.

B.L.Z. Bub: BeesNuts: STOP LIKING THINGS I DON'T LIKE!  the thread.  Brought to you by blank adspace.

STOP DISLIKING THINGS I LIKE! the thread, brought to you by Kaufman fanbois.


For the record, I think he was clever to try what he was trying, but I don't think it was especially funny.  As a body of work on its own, Kaufman's material kind of stinks.  But it's REALLY FARKING FUNNY how this makes people mad twenty years later.

So he gets some points.

You can dislike whatever you want, just don't expect people to care, or want to hear more from you on the subject.

Kaufman doesn't make people mad, it's more like this:

i.imgur.com

And for everybody who thinks he was some kind of comic genius: It says a lot about a person when they think that making everyone around them uncomfortable is somehow funny as hell. Or if they like watching it happen. A little inferiority complex going on there, maybe?  Hey, at least he's not laughing at YOU, right? Because you're in on the joke. You're not like everybody else!  You and Kaufman are different.

Nine Hundred and Eight: Sounds like a confession to me!

Also if Andy didn't show up for the 20th Anniversary of his supposed demise like he said he was going to. I think we can safely say the man is dead and buried.

Though I wouldn't be horribly surprised to learn that the Andy Kaufman is still alive "theory" was started by Kaufman himself before he died as a final trick.

durbnpoisn: sharphead: Elvis Presley dead too?  Can we confirm that?

No.  He went back to his home planet.  Everyone knows that.

And I say again (like I did the other day), the only celebrity that I think was capable of successfully faking their own death was (is) Jim Morrison.  I think he simply cut his hair and stayed in France.


I know someone who looks like Jim except hes like 20 years too young to be him. Also when he sings karaoke he sounds nothing like Jim Morrison but has a spot on perfect Axle Rose.

Ah ha! I knew Axle Rose wasn't dead. Knew it all along.

Even if he did, let him stay "dead". He faked it for a reason..

//besides, you could argue he was on the downswing of his career. Perfect time for faking a death, and perfect time for just letting it stay that way.

FrancoFile: NickelP: does anyone care about this?

Fark has an amazing group of mental necrophiliacs.   They fellate people like Hicks and Kaufman well beyond anything they actually accomplished. If you died young, they mentally project a monumental career arc for you.

I knew a guy who was that way about Stevie Ray Vaughan.  I had to tell him point black to just shut up already, since he was boring everybody else to tears.


Google for The Onion article "Guy at Local Bar just a little too into Stevie Ray Vaughan."

The farker probably is alive but he's faking his resurrection until he gets more publicity. Would anyone actually care if he turned up alive? Besides thanking him for moving aside for that many years that is.

I never got the Andy Kaufman thing. The Tony Clifton act was I guess sort of funny but as we've seen here on Fark, there's nothing brilliant in playing all of the absurd straight until you piss off a lot of people and declare that as comedy genius.

But his work with Jerry Lawler in the old Continental territory was great.

That's where Kaufman shined. In fact, that's most likely what he was attempting to do with his act... work non-wrestling audiences.

He was the perfect wrestling heel. However, that act isn't going to go over with normal audiences.

STOP DISLIKING THINGS I LIKE! the thread, brought to you by Kaufman fanbois.


What I don't understand is why anyone who dislikes a person/thing so much would waste their time going into a thread that's clearly dedicated to that person/thing and making sure everyone knows how much they hate it (and everyone who likes it)... I hate pretty much all pro sports, so you know what I do? I avoid the sports tab entirely! I don't seek out threads about football and fill them up with talk about how much football sucks and how its fans are all brainless neanderthals... That seems like some kind of strange obsessive behavior...

So this means his girlfriend is in on the scam too.
 
2013-11-15 04:51:52 PM
Right, she watched him die, and Phil Collins watched her watch him die, and then when he saw her in the audience later that night he had them train a spotlight on her while he improvised a verse about what should happen to her.

Why would Morrison fake his death.  He loved fame.

Asked the man who thinks fart jokes are a riot.

Which man is that? Perhaps you have me confused with someone else.

I had you confused for someone that knew something about humor.

Wait, so you thought that I think fart jokes are a riot, and now you say you had me confused with someone who knows something about humor, implying that someone who thinks fart jokes are a riot knows something about humor. Aaargh, I'm CONFUUUUUUSED!!!
