What a surprise!

Shooting erupts at 'Notorious' movie is the headline at the (North Carolina) Greensboro News and Record. "Notorious" is a new film about rapper Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace who was -- surprise! -- killed in a drive-by shooting in 1997.

Greensboro police Lt. James Hinson said, "We can't say whether or not this shooting is in direct relationship to the movie 'Notorious' B.I.G. We just can't say."

How 'bout ... "It's probably a safe bet"?

As [sadly] ridiculous as this story is, ridiculous too is the radio commercial I heard for this flick the other day. It pronounced B.I.G. as "the greatest rapper of all-time" in the "greatest movie event of our age." The former pronouncement is laughable enough, but the latter?? That's cough-up-a-lung material, folks.

UPDATE: More fun! 4 stabbed during after-party for 'Notorious' film!
