Amanda Bynes has apparently come out of the retirement from acting she announced on Twitter on June 19. And yes, this groups her with unretirees Jay-Z and Joaquin Phoenix, only on steroids when it comes to the turnaround time.

Note to the 56% of voters (as this post went live) in our nonscientific online poll who predicted she’d be back -- good job! We have no prize for you, but we presume you’ll bask in the glow of your accuracy for at least a week or so, or until @chicky retires again, whichever comes first.

Bynes’ pithy tweet ‘I’m unretired’ was launched into the Interwebs’ ether Friday night, followed minutes later by a link to the trailer for her movie ‘Easy A,’ which hits theaters Sept. 17.


Oh, look at that, we just promoted ‘Easy A.’ Funny how that happens.
