Thread: Farrah and Michael

  1. #1
    Wayne Boatwright Guest

    Default Farrah and Michael

    Why do some people take delight in bashing those who lie dead? Do they
    derive some demented pleasure from it?

    Sad...

    C'mon, Wayne. Humor is man's natural defense to the unknown frontier of
    dying. Better to laugh than cry.

    Many of the comments were anything but humorous, nb.

    I'm not defending either Farrah or Michael for anything they did or did not
    do in life, but I'm certainly not bashing them.

    It's interesting how they usually extol the virtues of whatever dead
    celebrity it is, but now they're celebrity bashing.

    I'm sure that Sheldon can expect the same outpouring of pleasure when he
    dies.

    In the case of Michael Jackson, I think people forget what a madcap
    prankster he was. For example, do you remember the time he dangled his
    infant child off the hotel balcony in Berlin, just for a goof? Zany!

    Yes, I certainly do. JMO, but I don't think he ever intentionally hurt
    anyone.

    Well I'm not bashing Farrah. Michael is a completely different story.
    I've been bashing the pedophile for years, and will continue to do so.
    His talent can certainly never make up for what he's done to those young
    boys. Maybe that's just me. The man was a freak. If he had any sense he
    would have stayed in the background. But he didn't.

    I haven't been watching anything regarding Farrah. She had a pretty
    rough life IIRC and AFAIK, she never hurt anyone but herself. MJ had a
    wonderful gift which he threw down the toilet and he took casualties with
    him. I was appalled at the tributes they were throwing upon him
    yesterday. Gag me.

    The dead can't hear. It just doesn't matter what is said about them.

    On the other hand, if I were one of their family members, it would be
    a good time for
    a camping trip to Mongolia.

    I don't recall him ever being convicted of anything. It reminds me of the
    civil suits against Jeff Smith (The Frugal Gourmet) who was never convicted
    of anything or even charged with anything in a criminal court. People can
    yell all they want once someone gets very famous. My first thought is
    they're trying to extort money. Whatever. You can't take away his talent.

    For a long while I thought Farrah's only talent was in tossing her hair and
    showing big white teeth. She changed that with her Broadway rendition of
    'The Burning Bed'. But if she hadn't done that I'd have thought she was a
    brainless bimbo.

    I haven't said anything about Jackson that I would not have said when he
    was alive, but I didn't say much about him when he was alive because IMO
    he was not worth talking about, other than to react to those who would
    try to excuse him for unpardonable behavior. Let's face it, while he
    had talent, he was a freak. Grown men do not have sleepovers with little
    boys, and I have no idea how many millions he spent on plastic surgery
    to turn himself into a white woman.

    I agree, but I'm also a bit envious of guys who were molested as boys
    and end up with huge monetary settlements. It's like , "Damn. Why
    couldn't *I* have grown up Catholic?"
    To me, money--lots of it--would certainly "make up for" any unwanted
    touching.
    If it weren't for all the guilt that mainstream society attaches to
    sex, priestly (and MJ was kind of like a priest) seduction would be
    one one of the more minor of childhood traumas. I'd far rather have
    blown a dude than I would have suffered the pain of a broken ankle.
    If, at the time I'd known that giving a priest a handjob would make
    the ankle pain miraculously go away, I'd have thought, "Bring him on."

    But maybe that's just me.

    I'm sure Jackson felt the same way when he was sleeping and
    playing
    bed games with the little boys in his secret bedroom.
    But maybe some think his buying the parents off made it all
    ok, and after all
    it was just fun and games, wasn't it? nothing wrong with
    that says Jackson,
