the Michael Jackson yard sale!

If you haven't heard, Michael Jackson is having some financial problems. Namely, he's broke and everybody from a wealthy sheikh to director John Landis has been suing him. So what do you do when you need money? You have a yard sale. They have two catalogs up now, with more to come; you owe yourself to take some time and flip through 'em, because they're AMAAAAAAAAAZING. -ly horrifying. If Michael Jackson does not have the worst taste of anyone in the world, I do not want to know who does. Check out the home furnishings. Astounding.

I missed buying something from boy band developer/sexual predator/financial scam artist Lou Pearlman's "well, folks, I'm off to jail" auction, and I've been mildly regretting it ever since. I might have to place some lowball bids on this one. Maybe on one of Michael Jackson's fifteen million horrifying figurines of small children. Because really, you can't get any more disturbing than that.
