It seems unnecessary to crack jokes over the death of someone who was famous before he had his driver's license, got into drugs, and ended up dead of an overdose before his 40th birthday. So. Let's just report that Corey Haim, the Ontario native and 80s teen cutiepie turned Z-lister and knowing pop-culture punchline, died overnight in Los Angeles, and move on to happier things. Make your Two Coreys jokes in the comments if you feel so inclined. I [heart] the 80s, guys.
