Another Reason Michael Jackson Is Lucky to Be Dead

The latest chapter in Mexico's ongoing quest to break the Guinness World Record for Most Guinness World Records Broken by a Single Country:

Mexico City's Michael Jackson fans got together Tuesday morning to practice the recently deceased singer's famous "Thriller" dance in front of the Palacio de Bellas Artes downtown.

Led by Mexican Jackson impersonator "Héctor Jackson" [Note: not to be confused with Mexican Jackson impersonator Estefan Jackson] and choreographer Adolfo Chávez, the group was preparing for an Aug. 29 event in which an estimated 11,000 people in Mexico City will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the biggest mass "Thriller" dance. Jackson would have turned 51 on that date.

If you try to picture the police reaction to 11,000 Mexicans gathering in the middle of LA and spontaneously bursting into dance, well, I think the question answers itself.

yeah, Burro, you're right -- especially if they're all dressed like zombies -- After all, remember what it says in the Zombie Survival Guide -- the original Bloods & Cripps gangs were really a zombie outbreak in a Latino neighborhood
