Mexico City, Mexico - Looking like a scene taken right out of the movie "V" or "The Three Amigos", a tsunami of humanity wearing black hats flooded the streets of Mexico City today. It was not, however, in political protest against the government but in peaceful celebration of their fallen muse, Michael Jackson.
"It's what the King of Pop would have wanted us to do," said Miguel Sanchez, Michael Jackson fan and birthday party celebrant. "This or bury him."
Miguel Sanchez says he looks forward to remembering Michael Jackson on November 2 for El dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead observance.
"He should be in the ground by then," said a somber Sanchez. "I hope."
However, the celebration of Michael Jackson's life on his birthday and originally scheduled date of his funeral was not limited to Mexico as Jackson birthday partygoers went global, as fans gathered in London, Moscow, Berlin and other capitol cities of the world to commemorate their musical comrade.
Even Google.Com got into the mix with their tribute to the King of Pop in the form of featuring his trademark black penny loafers and silver socks, adorning their gooooogle loooogo login page.
As well as did film maker Spike Lee -- Who everyone one suspects is attempting to curry favor with the Jackson family so he can have their full cooperation on a new movie he is making on the King of Pop's struggle with vitiligo vulgaris (a medical condition which depletes melatonin resulting in a loss of pagination of the skin).
"In my new movie about Michael Jackson, I'm taking a sympatric point of view on race relations in America," said Spike Lee. "So it will be a first for me. I already got the title. You want to hear it? Okay then. I'm calling it 'Whitey Down Under' because without pagination, we'll White. Who knew? I sure in the [BLEEP] didn't."
"All that's left now for the fans is the closure they'll get from the actual funeral service," said Dr. Phil in a phone interview via satellite. "Oh, snap. That's right. Unfortunately, the Jackson family has decided to keep that private and conduct it at night to block out the prying eye of the paparazzo's telescope lenses. It gives me pause and makes me wonder. Who's in more denial of Michael's death by not letting him go: His fans or his family? Either way, it looks like to me that I'll be very busy this year."
