Jeez, This Stuff is Impossible to Parody!

I promise..this is the last MJ post...forever...at least, until he comes back...I mean, these are tough times for satirists like Yours Truly with headlines like these, from (of course) the Brits:
Michael Jackson to be buried without his brain

Michael Jackson will be buried this week– without his brain. As his family tries to finalise details for the King of Pop’s funeral on Tuesday they have been told it will be held back for tests.

They faced the grim choice of waiting up to three weeks for Jackson’s brain to be returned to them or go ahead and bury him without it – which they have decided to do.
Gosh...dare I say the word? eBay...eBay...eBay...

Anyway, was glad to see the Today Show finally cover Bubbles the Chimp. You could just tell that this wise, wise primate, with the richness of his experience, could reach such better conclusions than humans without that experience on almost any subject, especially those subjects related to bananas, moonwalking and female chimps. Actor, companion to the famous, witness to vile crimes, enslaved for his knowledge, engendering a nobility that transcends species. Powerful stuff:
These days, he spends his time hanging out with a group of six other chimps. Among his favorite things to do: eating sweet potatoes, listening to flute-and-guitar music, painting and kicking back with longtime buddy Sam, 40. "The two of them like to climb up to the top of a cupola and just sit there, staring out over the orange groves, watching the traffic in the distance," says Ragan. "He loves being up there."
Today of all days, lift a banana to Bubbles.

I saw this on another site:
Michael Jackson is a shovel-ready project.

No brain? Will he rise again and seek public office? Couldn't be much worse then what we have right now.
