CNN says that Michael Jackson’s body will go back home to Neverland on Thursday morning. There will be a public viewing on Friday and a private memorial service on Sunday at Neverland. It’s not really know if Michael will be buried at Neverland. The Mayor of Gary, Indiana, Michael’s hometown, has asked him family to bury him in their town. He said that Michael could be buried on the grounds of a new Jackson family museum and performing arts center. Translation: They want the tourist cash.
If you live near Neverland, you better beam yourself out of there now, because it’s going to be lunacy. The tears from all his fans will flood the whole city, so if you stay, you better keep a kayak and some snorkel equipment handy. You also better get some ear plugs, because their wails will make your ear drums collapse.
When I first read about this, my skin crinkled at the thought of an open casket, but I don’t know if they will go that far. Nothing surprises me anymore, though. Imagine all the MySpace and Facebook default pictures of sick hos posing with his body? I weep. Facebook needs to an install an “I Quit This Bitch” button for that reason alone!
And I better not see pictures of Joe Jackson selling tickets and souvenir brochures outside…..
