BROOKLYN, NY, USA A massive dance party was held in Prospect Park to commemorate Michael Jackson's 51st birthday on Saturday.
Thousands of devoted fans danced close together in the rain and mud, facing a large stage where deejays played selections of Jackson's music which included early hits recorded with the Jackson Five as well as throughout his solo career, including his final recordings.
Attendees were treated to a giant white birthday cake that read "Happy Birthday Michael Jackson" in red frosting. The flour used to make the cake was specially milled for the occasions, using Jackson's leftover Midazolam and Diazepam tablets and capsules mixed into Lorazepam syrup. As the cake was served, the Jackson Five Minus One Equals Four performed a tribute to their fallen brother called "Eat It" which was based on Jackson's hit "Beat It".
Huge globes containing Propofol, complete with intravenous lines and needles for those wishing to receive the full Jackson experience, dotted the sky.
Timbe Crump, 38, came from Milwaukee for the weekend and didn't want to miss the IVs.
"We planned the trip around this," she said. "It's a day to celebrate his life and his accomplishments."
"I won't even remember this party," said actor Tracy Morgan. "Michael Jackson took everything."
A full medical staff was available to treat drug overdoses, which were fewer than expected due to the huge turnout.
Most attendees awakened from their drug induced daze within eight hours and were surprised to find that they had signed releases allowing party organizers to use their images without further compensation.
Spike Lee is reportedly looking forward to a return engagement to begin filming his "Thriller" tribute to Jackson to be released in time for Halloween.
Lee, who directed the "They Don't Care About Us" music video for Jackson in 1996, is reportedly bitter that white businessman Philip Anschulz, owner of AEG, will apparently reap millions of dollars in profits by exploiting Jackson's death and was eager to tape updated material so that he could release his own DVD.
Money, money, money. Must be funny. Then you die.
