Edd’s MANtra: Million Dollar Jacket

Just days after the second anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, his iconic Thriller jacket has been sold – for $1.8 million! From cnn.com:

The red and black jacket, winged shoulders and all, that the late pop star wore during his zombie-ridden “Thriller” video fetched a $1.8 million bid at this weekend’s Julien’s auction in Beverly Hills, California, according to the auctioneer’s website.

Maybe I should put my MJ jacket up for bid. Wonder how much I’d get for it?

For those of you wondering who will receive that $1.8 million, let me give you a hint. It won’t be his children, his mother, his creditors, or even papa Joe:

Part of the proceeds will go toward the Shambala Preserve where Jackson’s two Bengal tigers, Thriller and Sabu, have been living the past five years.

Yes, MJ’s cats are now richer than we will ever be. Doesn’t it make you want to yell and grab your crotch?



  1. That picture is TOO funny! And yes, it makes me want to grab crotch and yell to the top of my lungs! LOL.
