trainwrecks are more interesting
 
2009-07-07 01:10:00 PM  
The sad thing is that the reason this is all over the news is because this is what gets ratings.

Had to try in such an epic thread...oh well, I know it's stupid. I'll just be over here in the corner.

Michael Jackson...the guy really makes the kid in me go crazy
 
2009-07-07 01:10:54 PM  

MJNN!

GET IT?!

INSTEAD OF "CABLE NEWS NETWORK", IT'D BE THE "MICHAEL JACKSON NEWS NETWORK", ON THE COUNT OF ALL THE MICHAEL JACKSON NEWS!

HAHAHAHA!!!

SO fookin tired of this.

Over under on how long the MJ media circle jerk lasts? Another week? two?
 
2009-07-07 01:11:15 PM  
This is going to be hilarious ...

gets popcorn
*munch*

Little boys pants at half mast today - RIP MJ!
 
2009-07-07 01:11:18 PM  
he is a weird white pedophile, for cripes sakes. I'm one too but what are the odds someone will make a big hullaballoo about my funeral?
 
2009-07-07 01:11:20 PM  
Good thing the world can start turning again tomorrow.
 
2009-07-07 01:11:25 PM  
I like the headline, Drew.

You're A Vegetable, You're A Vegetable
Still They Hate You, You're A Vegetable
You're Just A Buffet, You're A Vegetable
They Eat Off Of You, You're A Vegetable


RIP MJ

I'm glad they're having a Michael Jackson memorial - I don't think we've been given enough opportunities to remember him.

I'm so glad that there's nothing else going on in the entire world that's newsworthy. This is evidently the most important thing that's ever happened ever.
 
2009-07-07 01:12:00 PM  
it has begun
 
2009-07-07 01:12:03 PM  
LAAAAAAAMEEEEE

Please move along, like MJ. Wow, I'm wishing he didn't die so we wouldn't have all MJ all the time!

Schadenfreude ist die schoenste Freude: Over under on how long the MJ media circle jerk lasts? Another week? two?


Maaaaaaaybe it'll end when we get results from his brain autopsy. Probably not. The media knows that they only have a limited time to cash in on MJ now that he's not creating any new weirdness.
 
2009-07-07 01:12:11 PM  

CavalierEternal: ON THE COUNT

?

I'm not really sure what that means. Hang on, "Oww, My Balls" is on.
 
2009-07-07 01:12:13 PM  
The "dude" diddled little boys. I hope somebody sets his casket on fire.
 
2009-07-07 01:12:20 PM  
It's at the Stapills Center.

Months. I'm betting coverage is heavy at least until October.
 
2009-07-07 01:12:25 PM  
Its just sad that people still have respect for this person.

I wonder if OJ will have a similar funeral ordeal.

Just because you aren't convicted, doesn't mean you didn't do it. Right? RIGHT?
 
2009-07-07 01:12:44 PM  
Where's Fark's sparkle encrusted band on their logo to show their solidarity with Michael Jackson?
 
2009-07-07 01:12:50 PM  
I'm just waiting for screencaps of the Westboro Baptist retards getting the everliving shiat kicked out of them by hordes of angry nig-nogs.

/Although it would be hilarious to dress up like Bruno and carry a sign that says "God Hates Pedos"
 
2009-07-07 01:12:52 PM  
ESPN & The Weather Channel are the only news stations not covering this... WTF happened to this country??? No mention of former SECDEF McNamara.
 
2009-07-07 01:12:52 PM  
Three predictions:

(1) "I'll Be There" will be the last song with waaay too many people on stage singing.

(b) At least one fistfight on camera.

[III] At least three Jacksons will plug something during their eulogies.
 
2009-07-07 01:12:55 PM  
I hope there are lots of little boys in heaven.

(Any word on the WBC protest? Did they actually show up?)
 
2009-07-07 01:12:58 PM  
He ain't dead. This is all staged and in the middle of the service we'll suddenly hear Vincent Price laughing over the PA system and Michael will jump up out of the casket and start belting out the lyrics to Thriller. Rickroll, take a backseat.
 
2009-07-07 01:13:00 PM  

soopey: /Hot like you just beat it.


We lovl you
 
2009-07-07 01:13:20 PM  
Oh man, On the Z-Rock morning show today Twitch interviewed someone from the westboro baptist church. It was awesome!
 
2009-07-07 01:13:31 PM  
At what time do they drag his corpse through the streets? I wanna tune in to catch that.
 
2009-07-07 01:13:32 PM  
Did his autopsy ever come out?
 
2009-07-07 01:13:41 PM  
"Voice of John Hooper, Ticket Holder" wow

They're really going nuts over this. Why am I watching? I keep thinking maybe it's all an elaborate PR stunt for his tour and he'll hop out and do Thriller in the middle of the ceremony.

/probably not
//poor guy, poor freaky guy
 
2009-07-07 01:13:42 PM  
He's not quite dead yet.
 
2009-07-07 01:13:43 PM  
It's an incredibly uninteresting trainwreck.
 
2009-07-07 01:13:45 PM  
This is why a direct democracy may never work; people would rather obsess about a has-been pop star than, I don't know, the struggle for democracy in other countries or the wars their country is engaged in.

On the other hand, maybe the celebrity culture is just propagated by the few and powerful to keep the masses preoccupied so they don't notice what's actually going on.

They couldn't change the name because then nobody could call them the COMMUNIST News Network (because they've got such a liberal bias, you know.)
 
2009-07-07 01:13:58 PM  
I'll pass. Liked his music......in the 80's. Lost his mind. Rest your soul. Let us focus our attention on Prince now. What's he up to lately?

CNN: We're the pedophiles of news.

Hopefully before the next big Iran protest.

They're gonna sing We Are The World.

Don't worry. I'm sure someone will be burning an effigy of you somewhere when it's all over.

Sounds like you need to upgrade to higher quality victims. It's not how MANY you defile, it's WHO you defile.

going to hell for that one ...
