Los Angeles, California - Upon hearing the news of the death of The King of Pop, millions of Michael Jackson fans reached for their old LP records, only to discover they had thrown them out years ago when everybody switched over to CDs. Urgently seeking to replace them, so they could listen for clues rumored that Jackson may have left behind, predicting his death. So they ordered many of his greatest albums over the Internet, but on CD.
"I had mine delivered overnight express mail," said Tom Richardson, Michael Jackson fan. "Because I heard he told the people closest to him that he wasn't planning to live past 50."
Answering the front door, Richardson signs for an overnight delivery.
"Here it is!" said an excited Richardson "Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' album, but in CD form."
As Richardson struggles to open the plastic packaging, to place the disk into his CD player, he recalls how back in high school his classmates use to play their LPs backwards during lunchtime in senior court, listening for encrypted messages their favorite rock bands would leave on their albums for their fans to find.
"I remember playing "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin backwards," recalls Richardson, while still struggling to remove the plastic packaging. "And hearing the word 'Natas, Natas, Natas' over and over again. And you know what Natas is spelled backwards is? Satan!"
Finally freeing the "Thriller" CD for its plastic packaging, Richardson places it into his CD player. Politely Richardson excuses himself as he puts on his 1970s style headphone set over his ears to listen for any clues left behind by Michael Jackson.
"You know what?' says Richardson, removing his headphones. "I've tried for over an hour now, and I still can't get my CD player to play backwards."
No Richardson could not get his CD player to play backwards. However, program engineers at TheSpoof.Com were. And they made a startling discovery that they shared with Richardson.
"Huh," said Richardson after listen to the Michael Jackson "Thriller" CD played backwards. "Never would've believed it, if I didn't heard it for myself. Never would've thought Billy-Jean was his lover. And the kid was his son after all."
