Vince McMahaon dead? O_O

With Vince McMahon presumed dead, Federal investigator Daniel Beck began to look at his suspects and prepare for questioning.

Nobody will be exempt from questioning...and EVERYONE is a suspect, until it is determined who was involved in the demise of Mr. McMahon.

http://www.postchronicle.com/news/or...21287389.shtml


I'm betting it's a gimmick... http://www.cnbc.com/id/19307528

So, if the owner of a company dies, and there is no heir, does the whole company go down?


That would be great.

If this is anything like other soap operas, he'll either be reincarnated, or they'll transplant his brain into another body.

Meh.

Death as a career move. Worked wonders for Hendrix, Morrison, Cobain, Monroe, Dean, etc.

Faking death as a career move? Pure genius. Then you're around to watch your fame escalate into myth. Just see how it's worked for Tupac Shakur! He's still putting out new music and people still think he's dead!

I'd like to muster up the $600 mil or so and buy 51%. Make a quick mil, then sell it all to Fox.

No, he meant Elvis was the original king of faking his own death, like Tupac and Vince.

Elvis and Tupac are faking it together eating jelly donuts and drinking red kool aid on a secret invisible island off the coast of Brazil. Never said he was dead dead, just fake dead.

The only reason I knew about this was due to the commercials during the UFC hubbub.

No heir? I think he has a daughter.

He's not dead dead....he's just mostly dead.

I can only imagine she looks like she was catapulted out of a trailer park being clubbed by every penis on the way out, then promptly landing in a $100 boob job clinic.


I could be wrong though.

Actually, the Beatles did it even before Elvis. What, you don't remember all the "Paul is dead" hoopla, circa 1968-69? And all the "clues" that were supposedly to be found in some songs and on some of the album cover art? (Ooooo, am I dating myself.)

Okay, the Beatles probably didn't do it themselves, but they sure didn't rush out to put the kibosh on it either. Hey, with the extra boost to their already-incredible record sales, who could blame them?

He's not wearing shoes. Hello? Totally dead. Why else wouldn't he be wearing shoes? The rest of them are!

CONCLUSION: Dead.

I also do not believe that any of the drummers for Spinal Tap actually spontaneously combusted or died in bizarre gardening accidents.
