It's a real boom-time for Michael Jackson parodies. Besides the South Park episode 'The Jeffersons
,' there's also the Law & Order: SVU episode 'Sick
' (the protagonist runs a toy company, but the parallels are clearly there, especially since NBC promoted it as 'ripped from the headlines,' as is sometimes their wont). The new kid on the block is Eminem's 'Just Lose It
' video, which the courageous folks at BET pulled
after Mikejack complained
. Mike's got a long relationship with BET, which is one of the reasons I don't expect the topic to be broached on The Simpsons
any time soon.
