Diddy on "Downton Abbey"?! Diddy on acid?!

We doubt there are any hallucinogens involved, but Diddy sure did get his Amanda Bynes on Wednesday with some decidedly offbeat tweets. Yep, Diddy used social media to announce that he's joining the cast of PBS's "Downton Abbey." PBS tells E! News that it's "simply not true," which is a bummer. But that doesn't take away from the sheer amusement of these tweets. He started with a sort of verbal striptease. First:

Moments later:

Then the twitterverse went into a tizzy with corsets and bottles popping:

He retweeted a shout-out from Christopher Minaya. And then he gave us a picture:

And then another picture:

So Diddy wasn't kidding. He was on "Downton Abbey"... well, sort of.

At midnight, as promised, Diddy Tweeted a link to a Funny or Die spoof. This is fan fiction at its finest, with Lord Wolcott (Diddy) inviting Lord Grantham to throw some hundies into "a little company named IBM. You may not know about it, but our kids will love it."

(Warning: Video contains profanity.)

For real though, on May 1 PBS did confirm that they're adding a black character to the series. He's just not, you know, a zillionaire superstar.
