LOS ANGELES,CA., USA Gidget, the Taco Bell talking chihuahua, died today after suffering an apparent seizure at the home of her trainer.
Joe Jackson immediately issued a statement on behalf of his family (with which he rarely has contact). Mr. Jackson asserted that he will be filing an injunction against the estate of Gidget for infringing upon the publicity rights of his dead son, the self-proclaimed King of Pop.
"It ain't bad 'nough I got's ta content (sic) wid dat watah faucett woman, dat fat screamin' man wid a beard an' dat used up ole white man what used ta be on da johhny cahson show, now i got's to fight some freakin' DAWG fuh pu'licity?!" said an outraged Joe Jackson.
He went on to claim that, unlike himself, Gidget's trainer had used physical abuse to train the dog to mouth its words and further asserted that the dog had stolen many of his son's best dance moves.
Mr. Jackson has contacted Larry King Live to make arrangements for a follow up interview in light of today's incident.
"I can'ts undahstan' how come's all dese here white folks an' crittah's gots ta die like mah son so close ta his on-timely loss; don'ts dey reahlized dat dey's takin' up val'ble print space dat ri'fully be'long ta mah dead boy?" he exclaimed.
Mr.Jackson is asserting that the dog was under the care of Dr. Conrad Murray and that the doctor has staged Gidget's death to draw attention away from his purported involvement in the death of Michael Jackson.
