Awkward Moment for Alleged Batfan Who Didn't Know Heath Ledger Died

By Brian Briggs

Sheboygan, MI - An after-movie conversation turned awkward when a comment by Craig Fitzsimmons revealed that he didn't know Heath Ledger was dead.

"I said I couldn't wait for Ledger's Oscar acceptance speech," said Fitzsimmons. "Everyone got quiet and looked at me funny. I was like 'What? What'd I say wrong?' Finally, Todd told me what happened."

Even more embarrassing for Fitzsimmons is that he's an alleged Batfan. Todd Stevens, who explained the gaffe to Fitzsimmons said, "He's always going on about how much he's into Batman. It's one of the reaons we let him into our group, but he didn't even know Ledger was dead? Sad."

"I probably shouldn't have claimed to be such a fan," said Fitzsimmons. "But I really wanted to be friends with these guys. I mean they have such cool T-shirts and know so much about computers."

Fitzsimmons claimed to be out of the country when Ledger died, so there was no way he could've known, but his friends weren't buying it.

"Please," said Stevens. "Even my mom knew that Ledger was dead. After he said that we started to question him on other things about Batman. He didn't know a thing. The only villains he could name were from the TV show and movies. He couldn't even tell us what year Robin made his first appearance. I almost felt sorry for him."

The group said they probably would see The X-Files movie without Fitzsimmons. "I don't think we can trust him any more."
