Can someone please put a bullet in the head of this story before it spins further out of control?

Last month, when the card was announced, former slugger Jose Canseco was all set to take on  "notorious White House Party Crasher" Tareq Salahi in what was loosely coined a "celebrity" boxing match.

Now...word on the street is that Lenny Dykstra is taking Salahi's place.

"Canseco ruined my career by spreading lies," the former Philadelphia Phillies All-Star said in statement.  "I called Tareq and begged him to let me take his place in the upcoming fight against Canseco."

The fight is set to go down Saturday night.  It'll be streamed live on FilmOn.com to a World Wide Internet audience and to every home connected to Cable Television in the United States.

Oh and before you ask...the rest of the card includes Amy Fisher, "Octomom", Michael Lohan, Joey Buttafuoco, Coolio, friend of The Hall Kato Kaelin...and more!

And, no, I won't be watching.
