Former Jackson Jurors Punked on MSNBC

Jurors Eleanor Cook and Ray Hultman, appearing on MSNBC's 'Live and Direct' are unaware that Michael Jackson is eavesdropping on their conversation!

Entertainer Michael Jackson began his long awaited comeback today when he appeared on MSNBC's 'Live and Direct' with Rita Crosby. Jackson appeared on a segment in which he punked two jurors from his recent molestation trials.

Eleanor Cook and Ray Hultman, sniffing their last fleeting chance for celebrity, were on the show to promote their (remotely possible) book offerings, which promises to detail the fact that Michael was guilty as hell and they knew it all along.

"No doubt in my mind whatsoever that boy was molested, and I also think he enjoyed to some degree being Michael Jackson's toy," Cook said, unaware that Jackson was peaking out from behind her chair, occasionally making devil horns above her head. The studio audience, which had been told about the prank before hand, were unable to contain their laughter, even though they had been asked to try to do so by the producer.

"What the hell are you people laughing about?" asked Cook, who's book, if it ever sees the light of day, would be titled 'Guilty as Sin, Free as a Bird'. "There are some little boys out there who think it's cool to be diddled by rich pop stars, and there are some pop stars who think it's cool to..." Ms Cooks remarks were drowned out by laughter at this point, as Jackson moonwalked behind her chair, grabbing his crotch and making a cry-baby face.

Hultman fared no better when it was time to promote his imaginary book, titled 'Yet To Be Titled'. "People just wouldn't take their blinders off long enough to really look at all the evidence that was there," he said. "I know I didn't. No. Yes. Yes I did, but the other jurors threatened me. They coerced me to vote against my will all fourteen times." The audience went into hysterics as Jackson rolled his eyes and twirled his index finger around his ear in the international symbol for 'crazy old man'.
