I made a movie a few years ago called MANOJ. Here it is:

And today I received the following YouTube message:

“Hi my name is [NAME WITHHELD] and I work for the University of Alaska Anchroage Student Activities office. I noticed you posted Manoj’s video on Youtube and was wondering if you have any contact information for him. We are interested in possibly booking him for a a show but he has no contact information listed. If you have any information on how to contact him or his agent, please email me back at [E-MAIL WITHHELD]

I don’t know how to break this to you, [NAME WITHHELD]…but Manoj Krishnamurthy is dead. I killed him with a razor and some shaving cream.

Before you call the police to report me for murder, let me clarify further: MANOJ KRISHNAMURTHY IS A FICTIONAL CHARACTER THAT I CREATED AND THEN PLAYED FOR A SHORT FILM. HE IS NOT REAL.

Friends, I would like to tell you this has never happened before…but it has…and will continue.

It’s hilarious and depressing.

Man, some people just don't get your humor. Seriously, folks, get a clue.

So when is Manoj's funeral service?

I am both amused and profoundly sad.
