Pat Sajak is DEAD!

Around 12th and Spruce (mostly up 12th st. and down Spruce some) someone has fliered telephone poles with papers that read “Pat Sajak is Dead” or something to that effect. They then go into detail about how the Wheel of Fortune host died Monday from complications in a Gall Bladder surgery. My girlfriend and I were shocked and as we ate breakfast at the Reading Terminal, we began to ponder if he had really died. Searching Google, news sites, and revealed nothing about his death.

What kind of weirdo has this much time on his hands?

    It only took an hour to write the obituary and about an hour to post them up and it was way way more enteretaining than watching TV. After all, I got you to blog about it, didn’t I?

    I don’t have that much free time on my hands. I work a full time job and make movies in my spare time. This obituary project was just a fun thing to do on my day off. I also got to watch people remark at the one posted in front of my window , “Oh no!!!! Why didn’t the radio tell us about this?!” It was hilarious.

    Thanks for spreading the word on your blog.

    I dont care if you have 24 hours a day of free time or half an hour, it was still RETARDED to put up fake obituaries and trivialize these men’s life. And if you think that what you did WASNT trivializing their life, youre sorely mistaken. I hope you got a big laugh out of it because people really did care, and you chose to toy with their emotions, rather than be a good guy and do something productive with your life. -Lucy “One world.

    How is writing a person’s obituary trivializing a person’s life? How does it make a difference whether the person is living or dead? What difference does it make to you–so much that you felt the need to speak out about it?

    Why do you put so much stake in the fate of a person you’ve never been able to see face to face? One whom you only knew by his work?

    Don’t you think all major media gossip trivializes people’s life? Maybe Paris Hilton is a real human being and feels trivialized by her portrayal in the media? Would you say she deserves it? Why? Would it be so wrong if you felt trivialized on Paris Hilton’s behalf? How is a fake obituary any different from anything written in newspapers that fails to take into account the entirety of the real story?

    And why do you believe news you find posted to a tree?

    Okay, first of all, none of your response made ANY sense! Clearly your not too inteligent! And if your such a fan of PARIS HILTON! well i feel sorry for you then! And how come you sympathise with her who has done nothing with her life and yet think nothing of pronouncing dead a man who has worked hard for his adoration. And for you to compare a FAKE obituary with real news stories, (and no, i do not read tabloids) is just cracks me up! Why dont you do something with your free time like go to a homeless shelter, or volunteer your time taking care of people. I feel sorry for people like you. -Lucy “i see trees of green, clouds of white” -leonard armstrong

    Dear Pat Sajak’s obituary writer- you’re a coward and a bum, why dont you address these issues with me!? Why dont you do something with your life like go to law school? -Lucy “Hold me like a mother would”-DJ

    i’m convinced that PSOW and lucy are the same person.

    Sorry I didn’t respond soon enough for you. It may disappoint you that I have a real life and other things to do than check the internet constantly. I was away for a few days (without my computer) for my anniversary.

    I previously asked several questions. You answered none of them and said only that I didn’t make any sense.

    You’re calling names and getting enraged by a person you’ve never met. I think that doesn’t make any sense.

    I was very intrigued by your line telling me to do something with my life like going to law school. The long hours and repetitious tasks of a lawyer are exactly the kinds of things I don’t want in my life, let alone spending three years of my youth on tedious academic and legalistic minutae in law school. But then again, how could you have known that about me? You don’t know if I’m 14 or 63. Anyway, who wants to be advised to a legal career by someone who uses name-calling like “bum” and “coward” to try to win points in an argument?

    You haven’t evoked any reasonable point of discussion. I’m done talking to you now. I wish only for you to think more deeply about your relationship to Pat Sajak.

    I’m glad to hear some other people were amused.

    If you ask me, I think a law degree would be awesome! Think of the MONEY you could make!!! If you’re good at it you might even become famous, too! And then YOU’LL get the fake obituary!

    And thus the cycle begins anew.

    Best of luck on your LSATs.
