I rarely cry upon hearing about the death of celebrities, but I was truly dismayed when I learned of the alleged suicide of Robin Williams. You could see the beauty of his soul twinkle through his eyes. He dedicated his life toward making people happy. Like him, I've battled crippling depression all my life and you'd have to be a real thick-headed dunce not to be seriously depressed at the way the world is today. That's why I was shocked to learn that the "Family Guy" episode "Fatman and Robin" (featuring a suicide attempt and Robin Williams) aired on the BBC three minutes before his death was announced.
Keep in mind that "Family Guy" also featured some weird coincidences between the Boston Bombing and their episode of "Turban Cowboy." And the whole "Batman" meme has taken on a life of its own during recent "newsworthy events" in the last couple of years. I make it a point not to watch "Family Guy," so I've never seen this episode. I hope you don't, either. Honestly, I think that show and "American Dad" are garbage and it's not healthy to watch them.
See the pyramid?
*** UPDATE ***
This is, frankly, chilling. Apparently Mr. Williams stars in a movie called "World's Greatest Dad" where his son kills himself in the exact same way (h/t: Aris's comment at Kenny's Sideshow).
Note: David Carradine (who is mentioned in the following clip) Albert Dekker, and Michael Hutchence suffered a similar fate. News media have insinuated these three died from "auto-erotic asphyxiation," but David Carridine and Albert Dekker were found with their hands tied, and Michael Hutchence had a broken hand and a split lip. Who masturbates without using their hands?
