    His brother says yes, and that he has a 24-year-old daughter. He officially died 29 years ago.


    This is weird even for him.

    Maybe he was troubled by the horrible asp? (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

    Bruce Lee ain't dead you know. They got him frozen in carbonite down under Chatsworth. They're gonna melt him down as soon as the economy gets better.

    Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if he was alive.

    I was only about 15 years old when he "died", so I only remember him as the guy on Taxi and that ridiculous pro wrestling stuff he did.

    Were things really at that level where he would need to fake his own death to get away from being Andy Kaufman? I'd think going to an island in the Caribbean and sitting on the beach sipping umbrella drinks the rest of his life would have been just as effective and a hell of a lot easier to pull off.

    I have a feeling it's more likely he set up this stuff to keep a hoax going decades after he died than it is that he actually faked his death.

    "Keeping his name out there."

    He was a 21st-century thinker.

    We know Elvis is dead, because if he had been alive he would have stopped Michael Jackson from marrying his daughter.
