Bill Cosby R.I.P.

The internet has gone into an exaggerated meltdown with rumours that US comedy giant Bill Cosby has died. Social time-wasting sites like Twitter and Facebook are awash with tweets & updates that the living legend and one of only a handful of people in the world who knows the secret ingredient in Coca-Cola (we read that on Wikipedia) has passed away.

At present these are just rumours, no doubt started by hoax internet jokers trying to spice up a mundane day at the office. But until we hear confirmation that Bill is alive it’s best to presume he is dead. So, R.I.P. Bill Cosby, it’s been real.

Hang on! BREAKING NEWS!!!! According to some words on Bill Cosby.com (presumably from him) he is indeed alive and well:

‘And now ladies and gentlemen for my rebuttal. As you well know, a dead person cannot rebuttal. Therefore, I am rebuttaling to tell you that when I heard the news I immediately began rebuttaling and went into denial. My wife has just informed me that there is no such word as rebuttaling, she says the word is rebutting. But I don't care, because I'm alive! Thank you, Cosby. P.S. That's another thing dead people don't say.’

We’re still waiting for confirmation that this statement wasn’t itself a hoax. We'll keep you posted. At the very least his 'death' sounds suspicious.
