Scene: Mom returns home after a long day at the office. Thing One and Thing Two are gathered around Thing Two's Acer (now the hottest computer on the globe), watching YouTube.
Mom: Hi! How was your day? What are you watching?
Thing One: Michael Jackson, of course. (The sounds of Thriller rise from the computer.)
Thing Two: What's happening?
Mom: Well, he's turning into a zombie.
Thing One: No, he's not, he's dancing.
Mom: Yes he is. Look at his eyes. He's become a zombie.
Thing Two: Look at that dancing! He's really good.
(The video has now progressed to the part where the zombies are trying to get to Michael Jackson's "girlfriend" in the abandoned house.)
Thing Two: What are they doing?
Mom: Well, they're trying to eat the girlfriend because zombies eat humans!
Thing One: But they're not eating Michael Jackson.
Thing Two: (with a great deal of confidence) They're not eating him because they like Michael Jackson's music.
Maybe that's true. R.I.P. Michael Jackson.
