But instead of tweeting about the recent end of his relationship with Jenny McCarthy or promoting his latest projects, Carrey has been posting scores of nonsense messages each day – many containing the word “boing.” Why, we don’t know.

Here’s a sampling of Carrey’s brain droppings over the past 24 hours: #BOING IS TICKLED PINK BY HIS OWN FINGERS! 8^}7 #BOING WORLD!

Jenny McCarthy, Jim Carrey split

Carrey and McCarthy in 2009. (AP) Another week, another celebrity couple bites the dust. In a statement released this afternoon, a rep for Jim Carrey confirmed to People.com that he and Jenny McCarthy have split after five years of togetherness. In her own statement, McCarthy indicated that the split was amicable: I'm so grateful for the years Jim and I shared together. I will continue to be in his daughter's life and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart. Carrey also addressed his 600,000-plus Twitter followers, saying "I'm grateful 4 the many blessings we've shared and I wish her the very best! S'okay!" Did you see this one coming?
