If you've received an email in the past 24 hours from your friend's LA PR friend, we know: Your best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who knows that Jessica Simpson and Johnny Knoxville are about to go public with their relationship. Our best friend's sister's baby daddy's yaddayadda knows about this story too, that Knoxville is rumored to be leaving his wife and Simpson will be filing for divorce from Nick Lachey and Joe Simpson is shopping the story to the celebrity weeklies just in time for the premiere of Dukes of Hazzard. Ohmygodexhale.

We're pretty sure, just from the amount of email forwarding going on, that this rumor would be simply a rumor. (Handy key: If the same, word-for-word email has been sent to you more than three times in a single afternoon, it's probably a crock of doo-doo butter.) And, if there's an ounce of truth to this business? Well, at least we can say we saw it coming.

The true mystery, however, is why this story was in the Post's National News section.
