Wednesday morning, Tammy and I were surfing through and saw that Betty White was trending. But why was Betty White Trending. I couldn't find out at the time. Could it be that she had passed away!

She was trending, but for whatever reason, she wasn't in a few minutes.

Then this morning I saw the explanation on Huffington Post:

Betty White, pillar of humanity and shining example of all that is funny and spectacular in the world, fell victim to a death hoax Wednesday evening, Sept. 3.

Satirical news site Empire News published a story with the headline "Actress Betty White, 92, Dyes Peacefully In Her Los Angeles Home." White's many fans and other Internet news consumers who don't read past headlines confused "dyes" with "dies" and satire with reality, and pronounced the "Golden Girls" star dead.

Kind of reminds me of when I was in school. No, JD read it again...what does it say!

Glad to hear that Betty's doing fine.
