This week we saw the passing of the iconic star of the silver screen, Burt Reynolds. Burt starred in films including Smokey and the Bandit, The Cannonball Run, and Deliverance.
Meanwhile, at a Honolulu restaurant, an irate Tom Selleck was overheard telling an embarrassed server, “You heard wrong. I’m not dead.”
In other news, MGM Pictures will be rebooting their 1989 comedy, Weekend at Bernie’s. This is expected to be Mr. Reynolds’ final role.
Burt’s longtime partner, Ernie, could not be reached for comment, because he keeps using a banana as a telephone.

When he’s had enough of listening to people complain, you can find him underwater scuba diving where he can’t hear you. It’s like space. No one can hear you, but not because of a vacuum.
