From RollingStone.com

It has recently been announced that former Smashing Pumpkin Billy Corgan has made some adequate changes for his health.

"I quit smoking," he announced, "I save lots of money that way."

He has also decided to change his diet.

"I replaced fast food meals with salads and also replaced dessert treats with a nice glass of water," he recalls, "And I've started exersizing every day for 30 minutes."

He also remembers the dreadful way he decided to loose weight.

"I was in a bar and some idiot said I was a fatass," said Billy Corgan, "At the time I couldn't even fit into my old pair of jeans, so I decided something must be done."

"I threw out all my ice cream and chocolate cake and replaced them with salads," he said, "And it worked."

He reportedly had a hard time controlling his appetitebut he's found a way to end that.

"I took an old picture of myself and wrote the words "Are you really hungry?" on it and hung it on the fridge," he said, "Works every time."

The alternative rock icon recently dropped 20 lbs. and is happy with that. Today, you can usually find him riding his bicycle around or running around the neighborhood instead of sitting on the couch eating a quart of ice cream and a box of Hostess snack cakes in one sitting.

"I feel 100% alive," he says, "I'm glad about the changes I have made and they will hopefully be here for a lifetime."

Which noob were you referring to? The one who made up the idiotic thread, or me, the one who responded to the idiotic thread? Either way, I will indeed shut the fuck up.

I have heard him say in multiple interviews that he doesn't smoke because he has the lungs of a 14 year old girl (Howard Stern for one). I don't follow your story son.

Was this supposed to be funny? Because there's no humour to be found.

Except multiple use of the word "loose" in place of "lose".

...Which actually wasn't funny either.

it's supposed to be retarded.

Are you people stupid? Say it ain't so. WTF? You, for a second, wondered if this article was real? It is so stupid that it is hilarious. I assumed someone would appreciate humour like this before I read the replies.
Anyways, I love that "article":D Stick around Alan Wu

*gigglesnort*

The joke is not "is it real?"/Let's fool people. The joke is that it is deadpan absurd

Oh my goodness, I read it again. I love it, doesn't anyone else? I post because of the perplexing furor lol
It makes me go :D
A similar effect to Billy lipsynching "Autumn Nocturne/Strolling" wearing Mickey Mouse ears
It endearingly clowns Billy so dryly

There's yer explaination. As a comedy writer, I could talk comedic theory all night;)
