What you probably came here for was a couple of insensitive jokes like "Michael Jackson finally beat it" or "I bet he's moonwalking to the pearly gates!" but sadly you will not find them. Why? Because Michael Jackson dying isn't really funny.
What do you mean, StegoSaurus, it's HIL-arious? Now say something horrible!
N0rmally we would, but sometimes things are so easy, so set up, that it's not even fun. Think of New Year's Eve. Do you really drink that much on New Year's Eve anymore? No. And you know why? Because EVERYONE drinks on New Year's Eve. It's amateur night. The same goes for something like when Michael Jackson dies. Every half bit comedian has something. "OH, he touched kids!" Great.
To put it simply: We like a challenge. Death is only funny when the whole world doesn't find it funny if that makes any sense.
Now, if Chris Benoit kills his family and himself, well, that's where we come in (Even two years later I laugh everytime I see a Bowflex). If David Carradine strangles himself with his balls tied in a knot, you come to us.
The only thing I can take away from this is the ridiculous people: I saw someone on TV crying while placing flowers on Jackson's star on the walk of fame. Seriously? Crying? He's a fucking singer. That's the bottom line. He's a singer. And he had some neat dance moves. He's not fucking Ghandi for fucks sake. Get over it already. Sure death sucks, but you know what, we were born for dying!
Sorry couldn't resist.
I actually can't see myself crying over any celebrity death, because, well, shit happens and I don't really know them, so who cares in the long run? The only sadness I could see is if someone who you enjoyed their work, hoped for more and now it will never come. But I'll never cry.
Actually here's my short list of celebrity deaths that would bum me out.
1. James Hetfield - Goes without saying. We'll list every member of Metallica here, except Lars, because no one likes Lars.
(Funny side note: Trunk bought the drum kit for Guitar Hero Metallica and I asked him if he plays it in his basement just wearing a tight pair of black jogging shorts and no shirt. He said he does. Good times.)
2. Johnny Depp - Call me queer, but I like his movies.
3. Sean Taylor - Oh wait, that happened.
4. Bill Mays...
