If you read the news yesterday, you'll know that disco diva Donna Summer sadly passed away at the age of 63 after a battle of cancer. And, like many folks these days, you probably tweeted your condolences. However, as is often the case these days, many Twitter users were a bit confused over which celebrity is actually in the news.
of "WHO IZ DONNA SUMMER???" tweets, a great many Twitter users have confused the late Donna Summer with 'Double Dare' host and Food Network personality Marc Summers. This has led to a flood of jokes about how Summers perished from some sort of unfortunate slime-related accident.
Yes, @celebrityhottub, perishing under a giant Groucho Marx nose that slowly dispenses slime would be a pretty sad way to go. Particularly since Summers, who famously
suffered from OCD
, was no doubt terrified of the constant messes around him on the hit Nickelodeon game show.
Marc Summers is alive and well, appearing on the Food Network shows 'Best Thing I Ever Ate' and 'Restaurant: Impossible.' He even recently
on an episode of Comedy Central's 'Workaholics.'
