Fans hoping to score a ticket to Michael Jackson's
concert funeral were informed yesterday of their success or (as above) failure. Just 8,750 fans out of 1.6 million entries were selected. Each is allowed to bring a guest. Some winners are attempting to sell their ticket/wristband on eBay for $1,000 and up.
The service could be a grotesque spectacle or a tasteful and momentous send-off—it's anyone's guess. But it wouldn't be a funeral without Westboro.
