Really, CNN?

My friend Scott Huffines, the founder of Baltimore’s beloved Atomic Books, claims to have taken this shot of his television this morning. I’m hoping, for the sake of our country, that he’s lying, but I don’t think that he is. Regardless of its authenticity, I think it’s beautiful.

    Where a carcass is, there the vultures gather.

    Didn’t Jackson play the Scarecrow in the Wiz?

    Oh, speaking of the Scarecrow, I’m not sure why, but the following comment, which was left earlier by Black Jake, was deleted from the system.

    I don’t get the scarecrow.

    It doesn’t fit Jesus as clearly as it does the other two, but I’d say that the Scarecrow and Jackson are alike in that they both hated who they were and went to great lengths to change that fact.

    And, yeah, I guess someone called the press because he had an interesting knothole. I’d just like to think that CNN has better things to talk about…. like coverage of the Michael Jackson funeral. You know, real news.

    And I just think the image works as an art piece, devoid of any context whatsoever.

    America gets weepy over the funeral of a man they desperately mocked several weeks previous, while North Korea sucessfully attacks US government computers. We’re living the dream.

    When coverage of Michael Jackson’s death started surfacing on NPR, I snootily thought it was beneath them, till I realized that his death was affecting millions of people and was a legitimate news story.

    But there’s a difference between covering the death of someone so influential and doing a Jesus-in-my-toast story, on CNN.

    I’m with Brack…God Bless M.J….now, let’s fuck North Korea up. They “Wanna be startin’ somethin'”, but now we need to come “Off The Wall” and show them the true “Human Nature” that they are asking for. We are so “Bad”, that they will be screaming “Leave Me Alone”. Mamma Say-Mamma Sah-Mah Mah-Coo-Sa, sucka’…Annie, are you O.K.? No, she’s not…Booyah.

    My nutsack looks like Joyce DeWitt’s mug shot, and no one gives a damn.

    It’s one of those pict-o-grams. Translation:

    Dear Michael:

    Jesus, Ray Bolger makes me stiff as a tree.

    Let me guess… all three were beaten to death with the same tree limb?
