When the Internet runs out of news, they start making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

This is what happens when the Internet has too many blogs and not enough real news. Cable pictures. Seriously? [Today's iPhone]

Pahk the nucleah cah neah Hahvahd yahd. (Immediately attacked by radroaches.) Also: Even in the future, the trains stop at midnight. #AxeToGrind [GameSpy]

C'mon, just tell us it's because the white case was causing problems. We'll swallow that one again and patiently wait, like good little Apple fanboys. [AppleInsider]
Next-Gen AppleTV Will Be a Cable Box?
Hopefully it won't have Siri voice-commands activated in it, because we're all going to hear out loud how stupid our viewing choices are. "Siri? Record "Lizard Lick Towing" and "Toddlers and Tiaras", and "Bachelor Pad" ... new AND repeat episodes, please!" [c|net]
John Travolta Will Play the Toxic Avenger in the Remake?
It's a sure sign that this career is ... [puts on glasses] ... in the dumpster. YYYYYYEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHH! [IndieWire]
