It doesn't matter that Cruz was born after the killings started in the Wiki universe

"Sad Chris Christie" and "Ben Carson Wikipedia" had their 15 minutes in the spotlight, but only one meme from the Republican presidential primaries has real staying power: "Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer."

It's a movement that has spawned t-shirts, a Twitter feed and even an e-book: "Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer: A Time Travel Romance."

None other than Public Policy Polling recently found that 38 percent of Florida voters think it's possible that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer. Yes, that's a real poll.

The debate raged on in the Wild West of Cruz's Wikipedia page on Friday morning:

We're pretty certain that Ted Cruz is not the Zodiac Killer. The infamous Bay Area homicides occurred in 1968 and 1969 and Cruz was born in 1970. (Although his birth certificate is Canadian... Isn't Donald Trump looking into this?)

As yet, Ted Cruz hasn't gone on the record saying he's not the Zodiac.
