One of the hottest rumors in Michigan this week is that Jim Carrey says he's moving to Grand Rapids. According to a website,, Carrey said, in an interview for a magazine article:



"I’m just tired of the L.A. lifestyle and the fake people, honestly, and I feel like, at this point in my life, I’d rather just live in a place full of real, genuine people."

Well, it turns out that somebody's yanking somebody's chain. According to the Fox TV station in Grand Rapids,, our friends at are mostly known for their satire or "fantasy news", as they describe it.

But read the article in the link to near the top of this story. It's not that funny. What kind of crazy satire is, “I’m not retiring, I’m just looking for a change in life and I think I’ve found that in Grand Rapids.”?

Hmm. Here's the story from Fox 17 in Grand Rapids.
