Craziest Person in the History of Western Civilization?

Wow. This one can’t even be embellished with jokes. It kind of says it all.

Michael Jackson is looking at designs for a 50 foot robot replica of himself. RoboJacko is apparently tied into a planned Vegas show Jackson is putting together. The robot will not be in the show, but instead roam the desert near Vegas. The robot is said to be visible from the skies, so people flying into the local airport can see it as they land.

So many questions! Does it shoot laser-beams? Hell yeah it does! Is it 50 feet tall so it will not be confused with the real Jackson, who looks like a poorly constructed android as it is? Perhaps. Will this be a topic in every late-night comedian’s monologue this evening? Bet you a million bucks. Will there also be a 24/7 assembly-line that pumps out underage little boy robots for the giant MJ’Bot to play with? Unconfirmed at press time.

I had to do a double take when I saw this. April Fool’s Day is still a few days off, right?

    Mike, you’ll note that the robot doesn’t have a nose either,

    I’m glad you put that the photo is not the Jackson robot. I was confused for a second (as if this story needed to be any more odd). Though that robot looks pretty darn close.

    Yeah, Marilyn — I keep thinking of Jacko in The Wiz. Was he the one who sang, “If I only had a nose”?

    Good post about the flag at Living Out Loud yesterday, Marilyn

    Thanks Mike. Unfortunately, yesterday’s post only pointed out how far we have to go.

    The thing about Jacko is it’s all very sad. He’s an extremely disturbed individual. But it’s hard to stop lambasting him.
