Amanda Bynes' brief retirement ends with a tweet

July 26, 2010 | 12:36 pm

Amanda-bynes 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.
