Irish comedian Dara Ó Briain checked his Twitter mentions one day and found, to his great surprise, that he had just died in Ireland in a horrific car accident.

It was early April, but the news story wasn't just a hilarious, "someone you love died" prank. Don't you love those? It was hilarious, "someone you love died" fake news! A scam site called "Mega News 360" wanted to profit off Briain's death, whether he died or not.

Here's some real news: Dara Ó Briain couldn't have died in Ireland, since he was performing in Australia at the time. And in order to be dead in Ireland, you'd have to be both in Ireland, and dead.
