image for Michael Jackson's Estate Announces Plan to Buy Paul the Octopus's Carcass

As part of a fund raising effort the estate of Michael Jackson announced this week a plan to purchase the remains of celebrated animal psychic, Paul the Octopus. Rumors suggest the plan also involves quickly selling the carcass for profit, either at auction or on eBay.

"We are constantly on the lookout for investment opportunities," stated Howard Weitzman, a lawyer representing Jackson's estate. "When Michael passed away last year, he left behind huge amounts of debt. Since then we have righted the ship and are now steering in a positive net worth direction."

Meanwhile, a California court of appeal has denied Joe Jackson the right to be executor of his son's estate.
