Michael Jackson, the moon-walking, deceased King of Pop, will hit the road for a world tour next year, according to representatives from his estate at a recent press conference.
"As you know" they explained, "Michael has shattered the record for earnings by a deceased celebrity. With over a quarter of a billion dollars in revenue last year, Michael has blow away the earnings of Elvis, who only took in a paltry 60 million. And of course, the best part is, he's not around to lavishly waste it all on zoo animals, private drug-administering doctors, lawyers to defend himself from child molestation charges, etc."
Some reporters seemed skeptical, others stunned, and they questioned the spokesperson, asking if it would be a tour of film clips and soundtracks.
"Oh no, we will exhume Michael from his resting place-he would have wanted that. We will follow the model and precedent set by the 'King Tut' tour, when the young pharaohs mummy was paraded about...except this will be high tech. With a combination of digital animation and puppeteer special effects, Michael will dance for his fans once again.
We expect to double last years earnings, and maybe even hit the billion dollar mark, which might be enough to satisfy even Joe Jackson."
