Jackson's Socks, Belt Buckle And Brain

Michael Jackson Belt Buckle

My last Michael Jackson blog for a while (she says confidently).

Michael Jackson's official music websiteis selling CDs and singles online, and now the tour website has started selling the same sort of merchandise it probably hoped to market during Jackson's London concerts.

On the website you can buy T-shirts, hats, belt buckles, tote bags, mugs, and even socks.

Right now there are nearly 52,000 Michael Jackson items on Ebay . 

There are only 21,000 Elvis items, and 1,700 items for Princess Diana. The most expensive Jackson offerings are domain names. One is demanding $21 million for  There has been one offer, as of this writing, price unknown.

But where will Jackson's resting place be? The exact whereabouts of Jackson's remains...remain...a mystery.

A casket which may, or may not, have contained his body moved from Forest Lawn to the Staples Center yesterday. From there, it's whereabouts are unknown. Now the LA County Coroner's office says that Jackson's family may be holding off burying him until the late singer's brain can be returned. Medical investigators need the brain for tests to determine Jackson's cause of death. Ironically, Jackson played the Scarecrow in "The Wiz", in which he didn't have a brain. By the way, you can buy "The Wiz" of Jackson's website for $12. But the story of the missing brain may launch a new frenzied entrepreneurial venture--being the photographer who snaps a photo of the brain and manages to sell it to TMZ or The National Enquirer.

That may bring a far higher price tag than any domain name for sale on Ebay.
