Canonization Alert: More miracles for Saint Michael Jackson

Publication: Weekly World News (via the Sun)
Date: 25 October 2010

The Weekly World News, bless their hearts, are claiming that pressure is being put on Pope Benedict to make Michael Jackson a saint because of miracles done in his name.

It's common practice to mock Michael Jackson. It's actually an effort not to do so, but I put up this picture of him to remind people there was a time when he was a good looking young man who recorded an excellent and under-appreciated album called Off the Wall, before he recorded Thriller and was consumed by fame and weirdness.

His musical talent was legendery. It was more then enough to make him an American icon.
His personal life was a mess, but we all know it and should focus instead on his amazing contributions to pop music.
Saint Michael?
Puleeze.
