Why does anyone care if it's really him or not? What's the point of all the nasty names?
Zmuda and Lynne took out full-page ads to remind Andy of the date, and his promise to them, right? Everything they've done in the past 20 years, everything that Andy did in the 35 years before that, what was the point of it all? What was the point of Andy Kaufman's life?
So maybe this isn't really him. Maybe it is. But either way, I'm still smiling.
He's having fun. And because he's having fun, I am too. I wish that you could all, for just one second, let yourselves have fun with this.
Because somewhere in this world or the next, Andy Kaufman is laughing his ass off.
DC - the non-believers are what make this country great. They accept the spoon fed liberal mass media line all the way to the bank. People wonder why I'm doing this on a blog instead of just appearing on SNL or Dateline or something. Maybe the mainstream isn't ready for me to be back yet. Maybe I don't want to be back in the Hollywood limelight, whoring myself out for some guy in a dark suit at a nameless mega-corporation.
This may not be it for some of you, but one day you will wake up and see something that you never thought was possible. The world wasn't flat like you thought it was, or you figured out the earth is not in fact the center of the universe and rotates itself about the sun, or that wearing sunscreen really is a good idea.
On that day you'll thank Andy Kaufman. Until then, I'll be seeing you at Starbucks, Wal-Mart, and various truck stops throughout the country on my national tour.
