I will never be the strangest person on the planet

Yesterday was Michael Jackson's birthday. He is 50 now.
I used to be a fan, when I was a teenager back in the 80's. I owned the "Beat It" album. (This was the closest I ever came to being "cool." I'll pause for a moment while you all reflect on how truly sad that is.)
Since then, the world has been watching in fascination as he has become stranger and stranger. I love being seen as "just a little bizarre", but ol' Mikey has clearly shown me that there are some levels even I cannot attain.
Would any of you would like to burn the image of MY face into your toast?
.
Party on, Mr. Jackson.
We're all wondering what you could possibly do next.
I'll be watching and taking notes.

You have to wonder - does he like what he sees when he looks in the mirror???

Morgen: Hi!!! (Thank you for being the only person to comment here all day!) I agree; I wonder what MJ thinks. Didn't he do a song once, about having a talk with "The Man In The Mirror," and asking him to "change his ways"? Interesting.

Wow that poster says it all! I used to really like MJ a lot too...now, not so much

Janna said...

PalmSpringsSavant: I don't consider myself a fan anymore either. I do, however, become fascinated by news of whatever crazy thing he's done most recently.

I suddenly feel a whole lot more normal.

Janna said...

Marilyn: You and me both!

His transformation is frightening.

This is a cool poster. Love all the changes in one place. My kids would be afraid. Very afraid.

No, you may never reach this pillar of strangeness. But at least you have a baseline to shoot for!

Janna said...

Gayle: Very!

Onangelwings: Just be glad he's not lurking outside their bedroom window right now! (Wait... he isn't, is he?)

Travis: It's good to have a goal!
