An Idea Whose Time Should Never Come

In the "Truth is stranger than fiction," category, E! Online turns us on to Michael Jackson's hunt for a job. Seems the self-styled 'King of Schlock' is trying to trade his truly spooky mug and star status for a job as a...get this...entertainment consultant. Bwahahahahahahah!

And what qualifies Mr. Jackson for this august position? Could it be the fact that he squandered a fortune estimated at over $600M? Perhaps it's the fame of being indicted on child molestation charges...twice?! Could it be his long serious of recording flops, extended all the way back to the late 80's? No, it appears AAJ Holdings Ltd., a Bahrainian entertainment conglomerate, wants Jackson for his expertise in developing theme parks and entertainment complexes. [snicker]

Well, at least Jackson's would-be employer is demonstrating it's commitment to diversity. I mean you find anyone whose more of a minority than Jackson.

I think it's weird that he moved there- it's like he's trying to avoid extradition for some future crime.

Ok, so maybe that's a bit harsh. But still...
...it's like he's trying to avoid extradition for some future crime.

Don't know. Though I think Bahrain's a pretty dangerous country for a man with MJ's...ah...tastes. He'd better get a lid on that lifestyle of his and double-quick.
Actually, a prefference for young boys may not be as much frowned up over there than here.

In Central Asia, on the Silk Route, the two traditions of the east and the west met, and gave rise to a strong local culture of same-sex love. In the Turkic-speaking areas, one manifestation of this were the bacchá, adolescent or adolescent-seeming male entertainers and sex workers. In other areas male love continues to surface despite efforts to keep it quiet. After the American invasion of Afghanistan, Central Asian same-sex love customs in which adult men take on adolescent lovers were widely reported.

Other forms are less well documented. It is reported that in the oasis of Siwa boy marriages were the norm until the middle of the twentieth century, a practice which was coupled with a minimum age for heterosexual marriage of forty for the men, a measure presumed to have been taken to avoid overpopulation. Finally, sexual relations between older and younger boys are said to be frequent in the Middle East as well as in the Maghreb.

The gloved one may very well be building the themepark of his dreams.
Yeah, there's a long tradition of "Arab boys" that dear Mike could easily exploit. I think he likes it over there in "Whateveryouwantland". Pretty soon they'll be calling him 'The Disney of Dubai'.
yeah but it is a consultant to a Amusement Park..so he will be consulting with that's right Carnie Folk...somehow THAT seems right....

but thank you for letting us see his prosthetic face one more time and before bedtime...great..thanks...

( I wonder if there is a house of mirrors at the New park for Micheal...not that he would Need it....ouch..that was mean...bad enigma....)

Did that give you nightmares? Sorry, but at least I didn't use the "Cats" face. That gives even me the willies, and I'm a frog.
I saw a great Photoshop thread over on Fark.com regarding Jackson's new theme-park consulting business. Great stuff!
Everyone knows there are no criminals in Saudi Arabia.

Therefore MJ is no longer a child molestor.
He can combine forces with Robertson's theme park aspirations...

All I want are the rights to use Beatles music in commercials-its part of the American way.
No No Lilly-
The American Way is to set your hair on fire in a Pepsi commercial....

yeah..and serve jeesus juice too..to the kiddies....
