In October news came that Marlon Wayans had signed on to star in Harmony Korine's next feature film, titled Twinkle, Twinkle. The news was later confirmed by Wayans' publicist. In the film, Wayans is said to be playing a "former hitman who dresses up in a dollar bill costume."

Korine mentioned a similar story interview with Brooklyn Rail in July 2008, which may be the origin for this part of the film:
The South changed since I grew up there as a kid, but there’s still a few streets that are really special, and great characters... And the other day I saw this black guy dressed up as a dollar bill, just walking down the street, it was like a stuffed animal but a full dollar bill. So that’s the kind of thing I do. I’ll see a character or a person like that and I’ll just imagine what their house looks like, and maybe they have kids, and I just start to embed a backstory. It’s good, that’s how I make movies.

In an interview with Spin that was published on October 21, 2010, Ninja of South African rap/rave group Die Antwoord, in the United States at the time, announced that they were making a "short form movie" with Korine.

Talking later with Pitchfork in an interview published October 29, Ninja gave further details:
We're doing a short film in a few weeks time with Harmony Korine that will screen at the Rotterdam Film Festival this January. [Korine] wrote the script and we made it a little more Zef. It's come out fuckin' wild. It's a short film called Wat Kyk Jy - which means "watcha lookin' at?" - which I tattooed onto my penis as well.
Filming is believed to have taken place in Nashville, Tennessee. The Rotterdam Film Festival takes placing during the period of January 26 - February 6 2011.

God's Joke was officially cancelled on November 19, 2010, with Korine explaining on
I’m sorry to let you know that I’m going to have to cancel my short film project for Cinema Reloaded. A couple of other projects developed quicker than I thought, so I had to move things around in my schedule. Because of this, I cannot give my Cinema Reloaded project enough attention and I can’t complete my short film before January. This is a bummer because I was looking forward to doing it. All the best to Alexis and Yuhang and thank you for your support. See you soon!

The details for God's Joke, as given prior to the cancelation, were:

God's Joke is the name of a short film, to be directed by Korine, that is seeking financing through, an experimental project organised by the International Film Festival Rotterdam. The festival chose three directors for the project: Alexis Dos Santos, Ho Yuhang and Korine.

On a description of each director's project is given as well as a minimum budget needed to enter production. Through the website anyone may invest in the projects listed, and based on the amount invested a person may earn a co-producer credit on the film as well as other benefits.

While Yuhang and Dos Santos have been seeking funding since November/December 2009, Korine did not become involved in the project until September of 2010.

Korine's film is seeking € 30,000. On the website he offers the following description of the project for potential investors:
This is a short movie about a person who is born with one of the most unattractive faces in the universe who tries to be the one of the funniest people who ever lived. It's based around a great stand-up routine from a very hideous human being. This person gives the greatest and most funny monologue in the history of the world but its very hard to look at this person because their face is so grotesque.
Each of the three director's has their own weblog in which they may write. Korine has posted on his once, writing on September 8 in an entry titled "I like cinema":
I like cinema it makes me feel real good. sometimes when i eat chocolate it drips down my chin and reminds me of the first time i ever touched a girls nipples. her name was looloo and she stunk like pop corn. looloo worked in a movie theater and in the late 80's she gave me a real nice hand job while i watched the film goodfellas. i also found a set of car keys on the floor. after she gave me a hand job then we walked through the parking lot and stuck the keys in the door of every parked car. there was a dog in the back a red Buick who had vomit all over his lips, he kept barking like crazy. that was the last car we checked and then we stuck the car key in and it worked perfectly. looloo had some extra chloroform that she had stolen from her science class. she put it over the rag and then accidental suffocated this poor dog to death. i remember looking at her and feeling really bad for the dog but looloo wasn't wearing a bra and she was making sure that her nipples were hard. i kept thinking that i might marry this bitch. but now the question was what to do with this dead dog. so we waited till everyone got out of the movie theater. we wrapped the dead dog in a blanket and stuffed it in her bosses office. she thought it would be a good joke. her boss was a gay man and he was real sloppy with the way he ran the cinema so looloo thought it would be a nice gesture to drop off this dead dog behind her bosses wooden desk. we left the dog and then jumped in the stolen car. i remember that the car smelled like onions mixed with maple syrup. looloo said she wanted to drive to the beach. i said no way, that's 800 miles from here. looloo said that she would lick my ass if i agreed to drive with her to Miami. i had never had my ass licked before and i had never been to Miami either. i told her i thought that getting my ass licked sounded kind of strange and maybe even a little too gay. she said no way. she said that once her mother had licked the ass of Marcello Mastriani and that it had been one of her greatest life achievements. i said lets do it bitch. so we drove Miami. for some reason i could only get a boner if looloo was sitting next to me in a movie theater. we didn't have much money so we snuck into theater where they were playing a film that could have been Jurassic Park. i can remember all the dinosaurs and an old women who had her shoes off in front of us. looloo gave me another hand job and it was great. i busted a nut when all these people started killing the dinosaurs with electric wire. it was great. it was shortly after that looloo called her mother back home who was suffering from cocaine addiction and ulcers. her mother said the police were after us. she said the dog looloo killed was a famous supreme court judge who was pissed off and ready to prosecute the hell out of us. her mom said she would buy us a ticket to Brazil and we could live out there for the rest of our lives and never look back. for some reason all that i kept thinking about was how looloo still hadn't licked my ass yet. i had seen one porno in the 5th grade where a Chinese women licked the ass of a man in donkey costume. i kept thinking that if we did go to jail then i should at least get my ass licked. it just so happened that the movie goodfellas was playing at midnight in Orlando Florida. so we drove to Orlando. looloo jirked off a garbage man for the gas money. she licked my ass in Orlando that night. i have to admit that it did feel wonderful. i was watching Joe Pesci the whole time that was strange. the next day we abandoned the car and rolled it off a cliff so that no one could find us. we went to the beach and begged for spare change. looloo met a hippie and disappeared. i was pissed at her but i also felt relieved. i took a grayhound bus back home and i was arrested on the spot when i walked into my house. my neighbor called the cops on me. i spent one year in juvenile prison. the funny thing is that while i was in prison the only movies that we could watch on VHS were goodfellas and Jurassic park. when i got released i found out looloo had jumped off the golden gate bridge and died. i felt really bad for a few hours but then i remembered how good it was when she licked my ass and what a gift she had given me. i think that's what started my love affair with the cinema and shaped my groundbreaking philosophy. h
