Some Stockton residents think that an image of Michael Jackson appeared on a tree stump in their yard the day that Michael Jackson died. The birch tree stump has what appears to be a stain on it that looks more like the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz than Michael Jackson.  Here’s a quote from one of Stockton’s finest:

To Stockton, Michael Jackson meant more to us than maybe Jesus did to some people.  I think they are both about even, they’re both icons!

The video proves that some people are crazy-as-bat-shit. (Link)

I know I talked a lot of smack about Jacko over the years, but I am sad that he died so young.  TMZ is the first to report that MJ died today after suffering cardiac arrest and being rushed to the UCLA Medical Center.  He is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson II.
