Michael Jackson is Dead, and My Blog Has the Best Post About It

Filed under good times at everyone else's expense

You think you’re upset about Michael Jackson’s death?

Kamran’s the upset one. But he took a break from his rage long enough to think of the greatest newspaper headline for the situation: Jacko’s Cardiaco. OH! Score!

And now, in remembrance, a song that’s actually only great because of one of the other brothers’ solos:

    I don’t know that this is the best MJ stuff I’ve seen on the webbs.

    My favorite comment so far: “Now would be a great time for him to re-make the Thriller video.”


    • Come on! Jacko’s Cardiaco? THAT’S GOLD!

      I don’t know that I’d actually ever seen “Thriller” until CNN played it over and over again last night. Now that Katy Perry chick needs to die so I can hear that song about kissing a girl for the first time, too.

      • Kelly says:

        I hate Katy Perry specifically BECAUSE she tried to steal Jill Sobule’s thunder.

        Jill is the original sorta-kinda-but-not-really queer girl, and Katy Perry better NEVER FORGET IT.

    But, but… I posted Captain Eo!

    Although, the picture of Kamran in the context of MJ’s death made me almost fall off the couch with laughter.

    • Your Captain Eo clearly did not impress me. I was waiting for him to somehow fit a kid-friendly version of “Bad” into it somehow, but it never happened.

      The Kamran picture didn’t really make me laugh before, but once you said “in the context of MJ’s death” and I looked at it again, it totally made me crack up.

      • Tracey says:

        Yeah, posting Eo wasn’t about proving anything about how great it was. Because it wasn’t. But damn, did it bring back memories.

    The Irish Daily Star or Irish Daily News or some Irish paper had a big huge picture of MJ on the front with some witty quip. BUT THE BEST PART? In the top right hand corner of the front page there’s a woman posing with her dog that says, “MY DOG ATE MY FINGERS.”

  4. Serial says:

    Have you heard this one?

    Since MJ’s made mostly out of plastic, they’re going to melt him down and make legos out of him. You know, so the little kids can play with him for a change.

    (tasteless, I know)

  5. Um….Katie,
    I don’t think being upset over MJJ was why he punched the window.

    Isn’t that how you guys normally get into your apt?

    I have a strong preference for “Ben”:

    Unlike most of the world apparently, I never was drawn to MJ’s music or performances, but I watched this Oprah interview from 1993 & listened to the friday episode of “Tell Me More” & I’m really drawn to MJ, the person.
