Tonight in Seattle:  

Surely this is too wild-ass bonkers to be true: Johnny Depp buying the Croc?

Either someone over at Culture Mob is playing an insane blogger joke, or there's a serious rumor flying that Johnny Depp is going to buy the Crocodile Cafe (RIP).

Can there be any truth to this? Or is today some National Spread-A-Celebrity-Rumor holiday of which I am unawares?

From Culture Mob:

How about a fun, completely unsubstantiated rumor for Thursday to keep you going until the weekend?

It’s going around the streets of Seattle like wildfire that Johnny Depp is going to buy the old Crocodile Cafe and make it much, much cooler (and hotter) than it ever was before. This is from several unreliable sources, some of whom were at least partially inebriated at the time of bean-spillage. It’s a juicy one though, and Seattle would LOVE it to be true, am I right? Enjoy.

{Hat tip to SOTS for sharing the rumor first.}

Such an occurence would be such a weird melding of all our favorites. What do you think Johnny Depps first Croc show line-up would be?

Well, I guess this would be all right. River Phoenix can't die again, right?

Levi wins

Speedballs for everyone!!

Seriously though, it would be great if someone with deep pockets bought the Croc, rehired the old staff, fixed the place up a bit and brought it back to it's previous glory.

Whoa...that would be great! I won't get my hopes up just yet though.

I used to go to the Viper Room occasionally for secret shows, etc while I was living in LA. I can tell you one thing Depp owning the Croc will bring: $9 & $10 well drinks at the bar and $8 beers while enduring craptastic bands!

Pretty sure Johnny Depp lives in France. And has a very successful movie career and lovely family occupying his time. The chance of this rumor being true seems beyond remote.

Pirate theme night would be off the hook!

Fear and Loathing night would be off the chain!

Dead Man night would be talked about by everybody but not actually attended by anyone!

Nothing would get me back into the Croc more quickly or often than new owner Johnny Depp hanging out.

Craziest (maybe) news all day! Oh Johnny, I bet he has great taste in music c:

@Bella--once upon a time, years back, I owed the domain allmylittlewordscom. How crazy is that? I'm glad its founds its way into such good hands.

My first thoughts when I read this were the same as Kirks @ 7
