Bill Zebub Died This Year - Again

I'm a little late posting this, but Bill Zebub is becoming increasingly playful with his timings too. For anyone who doesn't know, every year Bill Zebub posts an April Fool's Day prank on his site proclaiming that he is dead. This year he posted the message on March 29th

Bill Zebub dead at age 35 - Saturday, March 29, 2014

Detectives confirmed that the body that was found in an abandoned tower is that of iconoclastic director Bill Zebub. He was fond of going into ruins of medieval buildings late at night, pretending to be a mythical creature.  His death was caused by a fal of 66 meters when he fell off the spiral staircase leading to the top of the tower.  His funeral is closed to the public and the location of his grave will remain secret due to concerns of vandalism

I admire his persistence with the joke. It has an air of Stewart Lee style self-reflexive over-repetition about it. This is one King of the B Movies who is setting himself up for an inevitable early April "boy who cried wolf" death one of these days...
