Two articles that attest the world is filled with idiots
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. comic book publisher has decided to let Princess Diana rest in peace, dropping plans to reincarnate her as a mutant comic superhero this fall, the company said on Thursday.
Marvel Enterprises Inc. said in a statement that "upon reflection" it will remove Diana and all references to the royal family in its upcoming "X-Statix" monthly comics.
The about-face follows a recent announcement by Marvel Comics that it planned to introduce Diana as one of a team of super-powered mutants in a five-series storyline called "Di Another Day."
Company spokespeople were not immediately available to elaborate on the decision.
Diana was to have been a character in a satirical look at fame and pop culture, Marvel said earlier this week.
Buckingham Palace called the idea "utterly appalling" and a "cheap attempt to cash in on Diana's fame and the tragic circumstances surrounding her death."
Idiots I say. Idiots.
July 11, 2003 -- 'I'M NOT being a braggadocio or anything like that - but you know you're on top when they start throwing arrows at you. Even Jesus was crucified. People who bring light into the world, from Mahatma Gandhi to Martin Luther King to Jesus Christ, even myself."
One guess as to who said the above? You got it - Michael Jackson. Jackson was Q&A-ing music producer Pharrell Williams for Interview magazine, but, natch, the singer had to get his "Poor Pitiful Me" bit into the mix. (Memo to the other celebs - don't let Michael Jackson interview you. It'll end up like this.)
Michael goes on about "the devil in people," how he "loves all races" and but of course how "jealous" everybody is. But, "I'm resilient. I have rhinoceros skin. Nothing can hurt me. Nothing." (Michael has some interesting things to say about music before he sideswipes into the Christ analogies.)
Michael also says "God bless you" a lot. Nobody's sneezing, but he likes to say it anyway.
Someone please develop a Kill-Stupid-People bomb please.
