Oh, the humanity! Newman death a big fat hoax




There is a rather elaborate hoax going around this morning that actor Wayne Knight, who played Newman on Seinfeld as well as Dennis "Butterfingers" Nedry in Jurassic Park, died in a collision with a tractor-trailer near the Upstate NY/Northern Pennsylvania border.

It's been on all of the big websites and image boards, and even has a fake TMZ page dedicated to it.

But that crafty bastard is alive and well and not delivering your mail today. Instead, he's tweeting and feeling the love.


Still, it's a pretty funny hoax if you enjoy a good trolling as I am known to time to time.

Now let us sit back and enjoy the best of Newman on Youtube.
