Me: Why did you have to go and kill Michael Jackson?
Garth Marenghi: I’m sorry.
Me: Now his zombie won’t stop dancing on my lawn
Garth Marenghi: It’s like “Return of the Living Dead II” only real. No one deserves that. If only I’d known this would happen, I’d’ve spared his life.
Me: luckily for me he seems a lot more interested in those cub scouts
Garth Marenghi: Who’s going to look after them now?
Me: Roman Polanski? Oh wait, those are girl scouts
Garth Marenghi: lol
Me: How about Victor Salva?
Garth Marenghi: He cares a lot.
Me: He has got so much love to give. And so much wine and sleeping pills.
Garth Marenghi: We’re both going to Hell.
Me: We really are. And guess who’ll be waiting?
In one glove and a red leather coat
Garth Marenghi: Him and John Wayne Gacy.
Me: Now that’s scary.
In honor of Michael’s passing, Boy Scout troops across the country tomorrow will be wearing their pants at half-mast.
As usual, The Onion broke the story of MJ’s death ahead of everyone.
Author’s Note: Is it tasteless to mock the dead? Sure. Is it tasteless to mock a dead pedophile? Not so much. Screw around with kids and you deserve all the public humiliation I can muster. Shame he did most of the humiliating himself with how he’s lived over the past 15 years or so.
Author’s Note 2: Thriller is still really badass. Second best thing John Landis has ever done, slightly after American Werewolf in London and slightly ahead of Animal House and The Blues Brothers.
