Michael Jackson: Man in the Timber


Michael Jackson: Man in the Timber

If there is one thing we haven’t had nearly enough of lately, it’s Michael Jackson news — so you will likely be as thrilled as I was to learn MJ has made a miraculous reappearance… in this tree.

Yes, a Sacramento-area family says the blessed image of Michael Jackson appeared on their stump the day the King of Pop died.   Hallelujah!  Just like the “Virgin Grilled Mary” or “Cheesus,” the family thinks they’ve got an unusual spiritual image staring right at them from their own front yard. Felix Garcia has lived in the house for 22 years, and has never noticed the apparent image in his birch tree stump.

“I was standing by that bush, and I looked up and saw that image here,” Felix said.

Many people in the crowd who gathered to look at the stump this weekend claimed they, too, saw the resemblance.

Hmmmm… he’s a little wooden-looking to me.  But there is no denying that cleft chin!

Key quote:  “To Stockton, Michael Jackson meant more to us than Jesus, to some people. I think they’re both about even.”

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
