Originally broadcast on November 20, 1977, so you know it’s quality.
UPDATE: Revealed as a hoax from some German TV outlet. Shocking.

The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Jacko’s face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust.
The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to Michael Jackson — complete with disfigured nose.
MJ passed this week, age 50.
P.S. Bubbles is still alive…
For years now, when we listened to the 1994 Morrissey hit single “Now My Heart Is Full”, I thought the song’s refrain referred to “Pinky Cubans”. I was saddened to recently find out that alas, the line is “Pinkie, Cubitt”, referring to characters in Graham Greene‘s novel Brighton Rock.
Apparently misheard lyrics are a cottage industry, as a website called “Kiss This Guy”, has a huge database of them.

Good work! Bucky Turco landed the exclusives of exclusives, photographing and interviewing the infamous Kari Ferrell, she of “Hipster Grifter” fame (also seen in Gawker, Salt Lake City’s Most Wanted, Vice Magazine, etc).
Coaxing not only a video confession where Kari admits to past wrongs, but also an odd photoshoot, where Kari poses with traffic cones, websites, and flat screens – all while wearing the latest in Married to the Mob finery.

In response to our post about a crucial, missed penalty in last Sunday’s Superbowl, witz.org reader Brandon Freeberg, a lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers fan, sent us the photo above, and the following message:
OH MY GOD, WHY WASN’T A FACE-MASK PENALTY CALLED FOR THIS????? THIS GAME HAD TO HAVE BEEN RIGGED. OH GOD, AND BABY JESUS!
