Tragically, Alan Smithee died in 1999 after completing An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn .
It seems almost inevitable in retrospect, but a 1999 black comedy about Hollywood - in which a director named Alan Smithee wants his name off a movie but the only permissible pseudonym is "Alan Smithee" - ended up being an actual Alan Smithee film when Arthur Hiller wanted his name off it.
This Alan Smithee singularity led the DGA to end Smithee's career - the whole point of Smithee had been to hide behind-the-scenes disagreements from the public. But it had become common knowledge that a Smithee credit meant the real director had disowned the movie, pretty much defeating the purpose.
He's had credits since but only as an in-joke, not as an official DGA-sanctioned credit. It's not clear yet whether Smithee has had an official successor or if disgruntled directors can now just pick whatever name they want.

Froot Loops come in many colors but they all taste the same.
Presumably they taste like 'froot'.
