Very Much Alive Eddie Murphy Dies on Twitter (Again)

The current Twitter trend "RIP Eddie Murphy" has gripped the unwashed microblogging masses with equal parts earnest apoplexy ("Idiots on twitter, why would anyone want to trend something like that") and predictable cheap-shottery ("Hey Eddie: 'RIP Eddie Murphy' is God trying to tell you something about your career.") -- not that unlike the last time Murphy "died" on Twitter. The most we can take away from this experience? People are very eager to paint Twitter itself -- what with its frequent death hoaxes and other misinformation -- as the worst mass killer since... well, you name it:

Er, I have nothing. Go for it. Long live Eddie Murphy.
