The Week in Review
Mean Betty on Michael Jackson, President Obama, Sarah Palin and More
A look back at the week’s news and celebrity highlights
The Michael Jackson Gravy Train
Just when Mean Betty thinks that the hoopla surrounding Michael Jackson’s demise can not possibly get any more bizarre or disturbing … she wakes up to a new day full of fresh snippets of horror. Today, for example, Mean Betty learned that the Pop King’s chef appeared on the Today Show to blather about Michael’s last morning … nothing surprising there … but then she COOKED what she claimed was one of his favorite meals. Really – Mean Betty is speechless. Does anyone really want to know that right now? Let alone COOK IT FOR THEMSELVES?
Well, as Grandma Mean Betty always said, “Everybody wants to get in on the act.”
Speaking of which, did you hear about the enterprising company that plans to turn Michael Jackson’s hair into diamonds? Which got Mean Betty thinking … when Madonna finally kicks the bucket in 800 years or so, perhaps her arms could be transformed as well? Into, say, jumper cables … or weapons of mass destruction?
Peace on Earth
Mean Betty was encouraged to read that President Obama’s beer with Professor Gates and the police officer just might have a miracle effect on race relations in the country. Who would’ve thunk? On that note, Mean Betty has a brilliant plan! Why not send the President over to the Middle East with some hummus and pita?
