    I take it you’ve got a more understanding web hosting company these days?

    I spent ages trying to figure out the scrambled version of this strip that appears in one of the Maakies volumes.

  8. Luke says:

    I was looking for this one the other day, haha. Wasn’t it on the site before? I do have the book with the scrambled version as well but I’ll be damned if I’ll be damaging my strips :)

    Mr. Millionaire; you are an affront to Islam. How do you like those apples?

  10. DadaHyena says:

    I remember the “ripped up” version of this from one of the Maakies books.

    I couldn’t stop fucking laughing. MJ along with Madonna, Whitney, & others KILLED the experimental artistic sounds in popular music of early Eighties & this is the least of a comeuppance. As a songwriter & performer myself I despise most of his recorded output, yet I personally knew his ex-wife/mother of his kids, she once treated me & all the patrons of a high priced French restaurant to decadent dinners with her alimony money. I was so drunk afterward that when I came home I fed the expensive left-overs to my cat. Two days later my cat was run over by a car on Vermont Ave, so I don’t regret a goddamn thing. Thank you, Michael Jackson, for unwittingly giving my ex-cat a sumptuous last supper

  12. I discovered this strip buried deep within the archives of this site a couple of years ago. (http://www.maakies.com/?p=257) It’s probably the only piece here that I have not saved a copy of, as I do not find it funny.

    Having said that, I have always contended that Michael Jackson was the most over-rated popstar in history. While he was a gifted entertainer, he was also very lucky to have released his “Thriller” album at a time when the entertainment industry had a massive distribution system in place and the phenomenon of the pop music video marketing explosion was beginning. (I would add this represented the dumbing down of society on a new unprecedented level…)

    The strip is an expression of opinion, a rant against a pervert and his mindless millions of idolizers, but it is still grotesque and could be denounced and reviled itself as child pornography. As such, a lot of shit might hit your fan Tony. Hope you’re prepared to handle it if it does.

      Hey James Lileks, why don’t you go to Afghanistan and help clean up the fucking mess you helped make there. Asshole.

    • Nelly Hater says:

      You half-wit pompous ass. You’re not even enough of a man to be called a blowhard. You’re a fizzlespit.

    • TonyMillion says:

      Go fuck yourself, Wilson.

    • LadyKay says:

      Holy fuck its LILEKS! I grew up on the Gallery of Regrettable Food.

      • TonyMillion says:

        Someone tell me who Lileks is. I looked at the blog, but I don’t get it. SOMEBODY BOIL IT DOWN FOR ME!!!

        • Nelly Hater says:

          Nelly, I mean Lileks, is a writer with the Minneapolis Star Tribune who doesn’t get published much in the actual paper, but who blogs and blogs and blogs. He has a dull and poorly-informed opinion about everything. His attempts at humor look like what might happen if Dave Barry were accidentally cross-bred with a retarded baboon. And he loves war. His column the day after the invasion of Iraq began, “Did we get him?” And yet being proven wrong about everything for years and years does not lessen his confidence. As you see! He retains the self-righteous temerity to lecture you o what your comics mean, and to credit Michael Jackson’s success to a “massive distribution system.” (Wasn’t the same distribution system in place for, say, Yaz? Or Flock of Seagulls? How does the “distribution system,” as opposed to musical talent presumably, account for MJ’s success? What the fuck!) Fucking god damned James fucking piece of shit Lileks!

      • leftylimbo says:

        Yeah, can’t believe it myself. I was committed to the Institute of Official Cheer like a decade ago. Who the hell knew he’d pop up here of all places? Small world.

  13. TonyMillion says:

    “The strip is an expression of opinion, a rant against a pervert and his mindless millions of idolizers,” –Lileks
    That’s not AT ALL what it is.

  14. TonyMillion says:

    I like Michael Jackson. I never heard a song of his I didn’t like, well maybe a couple. He got me with “Ben.”

  15. TonyMillion says:

    How dare you attack Michael Jackson, sir!

  16. TonyMillion says:

    I just thought it would be funny to see what a baby would do if he was shoved up Michael Jackson’s ass and found some delicious shit. “Shit might hit your fan”??? I relish the thought.

  17. The Cow says:

    How much did you get paid for this one?
    Old guys didn’t even get the joke

    The aristocrats!

  19. Dennise Fluke says:

    King of Pop is a compilation album by American recording artist Michael Jackson released in commemoration of Michael Jackson’s 50th birthday. The album differs significantly in each country it was released because fan voting was employed to determine the songs for each country’s version. The album’s title comes from the title Jackson acquired approximately 20 years earlier. The album’s launch was made public on June 20, 2008 with the official announcement of the Australian version. The first release came with the German edition (which is identical to the Swiss edition) on August 22, 2008.”,”*
