There’s a forum on Table Talk called “Bizarre Hatred of Random Celebrities” (abbreviated BHoRC) and it is a riot!! Among the favorite targets of the random hate is Michael Jackson (remember to always add the middle initial F to anyone’s name in there … take ONE guess what it stands for!). Anyway. I found this humorous:
Did no one see this? From the caption to the picture James linked of MFJ making a peace sign:
Superstar Michael Jackson turned up on crutches in a California courtroom on Tuesday after a close encounter with a spider.
Hoo boy. I’ve been sitting here for about three minutes, perfectly stymied by that and wondering if there’s a normal explanation. The only one I can think of — a spider startled him and caused him to fall — sounds weak to my ears, because who would be so stupid as to admit to that? I keep returning to the mental image of a full-blown hissy fit. What do y’all think? (Apparently, he was bitten by the spider. WTF??)
And someone replied:
At what point does justice become schadenfreude? (def: Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.) MFJ is such a freak. Ewwww.
In non-BHoRC news, it’s gonna snow. Well, let’s say it this way. They are predicting snow. As we know, here in this area, that means nothing. Usually, when they predict snow, it only benefits the bottom line of local food stores. The day comes and POOF! no snow. Which is fine with me. Still, it’s all a friggin’ hassle and snow is no longer any fun when you are an adult.
HEY! My coaching site is up! Any and all thoughts are welcome.
I think I’m coming down with a flu thingy. I feel barfy.
