Michael Jackson's body — transported in a white carriage led by two horses and on show in a glass coffin.

Off to Never-going-to-be-alive-again-land Ranch.

I would have expected a little more flash from the King of Pop.

Await a kiss from Prince?

Followed by 15 tricycles, suggests Bernard McGuirk.

I'm reminded of the hearse in the Every Sperm is Sacred number from The Meaning of Life. That is probably not the Jackson clan's intention.

Now that Michael is no longer alive to blow the money on giraffes and out of court settlements his peak income years will finally arrive. Neverland will, of course, become Graceland, but I see further refinements. Like Lenin, his body can be exhibited under glass for his admirers to file past. But unlike Lenin, Michael is not really dead to his believers. To reflect this dynamism every few years they can alter the appearance of the corpse. This can be done in conjunction with the release of a new album of songs from the vault. If the vault songs were recorded earlier in his career, the nose can be broadened and the skin darkened. Perhaps for a joint promotion with Dollywood, a duet album with Dolly Parton can be released and Michael's hair can be blondified.....I'm just brainstorming here. I'm sure Michael's father with his instinctive good taste will figure out how to maximize Michael's profit potential. One thing's for sure: Michael is never going away.

Still not outdone...

"At one stage it was suggested he might even be laid to rest at Neverland, but laws governing where bodies can be buried are understood to have scuppered the plan."

Nice bit of prose.

Do all of the molested young boys have to throw themselve onto the funeral Pyre to complete the pagan ceremony?
