Oh, Joe Jackson. Deceased Michael's monster of a father held a press conference today with Al Sharpton in which he managed to lovingly honor his tragically-fated son promote his "record company" and just appear all around looney-tunes.

Obviously the Michael Jackson story is big news, and the man's father has a right to say what he wants about his dead son, but the twinkly gleam in his eye as he revels in the press attention just chills our blood a little bit, the record company plug being the cherry on top.

Sad that even in death, MJ still isn't free of his scary father.
