Looks Like Jacko Wasn't the Wacko One

You know, for years, people talked about how nutty Michael Jackson was. But now that he's dead, it's the so-called "normals" who are going off the deep end.

Exhibit A: Distraught fans are killing themselves. Too bad they didn't stick around long enough to receive a sign that it's all going to be okay. Something like...

Exhibit B: (High?) fans are seeing Michael's face in the clouds*. (I guess that makes them Ma ma say, ma ma sa, Mammatus clouds! Heyyy-o!) Apparently, he was hovering over NYC on Friday night and I didn't even notice.

Exhibit C: The reporters have GONE WILD!**

Wow, you'd think a talking head in Vegas would've dealt with his fair share of drunken idiots by now. He's gonna get sued for more beer money now.

*Best part = The reporter, appropriately named Jeanne Moos, saying she wanted to milk the clouds.

** Best part = The look of horror on the female anchors' faces. I don't think this was the first time they've seen Steve's temper in action.

I can't get that Vegas video to play... and thanks to your warning that it contained Jeanie Moos (teh funneh milk clouds!) I avoided the first vid.

I am sure that the second video won't play because the clouds do contain Michael Jackson's image and that they clouds are crying.

So THAT explains all this rain.

Last night a woman set a restroom in a bar on fire over Jacko's death.

That seemed reasonable, right?

WOW! Looks like someone needs a desk job.

Exhibit A: Suicide is a serious issue, so I don't want to sound harsh here but really... if someone is going to kill themselves over a pop entertainer who has died as inevitable conclusion to his questionable physical (and mental) health of the past two decades, well that's just natural selection in action now, isn't it? You may as well add a tag at the end of this post that reads "Thinning the herd."

Exhibit B: As Jackson's death will always have the footnote of the other celebrity deaths of last week, I would like to award you all of today's Internet Points™ for the fantastic Ed "Hey-o" McMahon call back. Well played.

Exhibit C: Maybe Steve Ryan will have to switch to a different job in Vegas where he won't have to deal with the drunks, like...

I'll have to get back to you on that one.

He looked like he wanted to do more than slap him in the face! Wonder what happened when the cameras stopped rolling? :-)

The look on the anchor woman's face was priceless. Took her a few seconds to pick her jaw up off the desk. :-)

*wiping tears*

A friend of mine saw Jacko the other day at Ihop. Apparently he's getting around.

(btw, I love that you still call him Jacko.)

What can I say? People are stupid.

Thanks for the warning, I am staying home today and drinking beer on the porch.

Wow. That suicide headline reminds me of Guffman. "Corky! We want you to live!"

What are the chances the reporter was given a summons for simple assault?

Guy is an ass hitting the drunk in the face like that.

words...words...words... said...

Steve is my new hero.

And all this over...Michael Jackson? REALLY? The most shocking thing about this whole episode to me is that apparently he hadn't become a total punchline. Either that or we're back to the old "dying makes you a saint" thing.

My favorite part was the "judgmental look" the reporter in red had at the end of the shot.

She probably works the pole in a sleazy joint to supplement her income too...

Fancy Schmancy said...

That was funny, what a douche!

Yeah, looks like Jacko wasn't the ONLY wacko one. There are lots of kooks out there. Reporters are not immune.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
