The Frontstretch: Top Ten Similarities Between Brian France & NASCAR and Michael Jackson & Neverland Ranch by Jeff Meyer -- Wednesday July 8, 2009

Go to site navigation Go to article

10. Their “hay day” has long past.

9. Both have produced an occasional “Thriller,” but not very often.

8. Unless there is a tragic fire, both will be the same color when they die/died (DYED?).

7. The tower Brian lives in is exactly the same color as Michael’s skin.

NASCAR is pulling out all the stops to turn around their recent ratings decline, to the point Jeff Meyer thinks they’ll try just about anything once come Daytona in 2010 … including a little “wardrobe malfunction” from one of their top executives.

6. Both Brian and Michael give me the willies just looking at them.

5. Michael spent most of his life just wishing he could be a talented white guy, while Brian has spent a good amount of time wishing for a talented black guy.

4. Neverland and a NASCAR event share the same atmosphere.

3. Brian is not as picky as Michael, as he’s been screwing fans of all ages and sexes for years.

2. One had everything given to him by his dad, the other, well … looks like dad will get everything.

1. Rumors have it that Brian’s sister Lesa will have an unexpected “wardrobe malfunction” during next year’s opening ceremony of “NASCAR’s Super Bowl,” the Daytona 500.

There is however, one (1) big difference between Michael (RIP), and King Brian!

Michael ATTRACTED fans!

King Brian REPELS fans!

And while we can call Michael’s death a real tradgedy, we could call King Brians death a real god-send!

(gee, that is cruel right),(any big large trees to hit on his drive home?)

And, while Michael may have been on injectable drugs, poor King Brian is on the liquid version, taken frequently by mouth. Now, if alchohol kills brain cells, I certainly hope King Brian protects the two (2) he has left!

“3. Brian is not as picky as Michael, as he’s been screwing fans of all ages and sexes for years.”

Fantastic! This should have been number 1.

I know it will happen…but I hope Brian France NEVER makes the HOF….But he should be the first in the nascar Hall Of Shame.

Really? That’s supposed to be funny? Hmmm…

Michael Jackson enjoyed going around in circles on his Neverland Ranch ferris wheel. Brian the Brainless likes going around in circles on his bar stool at the Chart House in Daytona.

Obviously you didn’t do your research, because Joe Jackson, Michael’s father, was left out of his will and got nothing. This article was pointless, and not at all entertaining.

07/08/2009 01:03 PM

Wow, these sucked.

What, nothing about Bubbles the pet monkey in here?

Sorry Hank, jokes about pet monkeys is a moral line that I am not willing to cross. It would be in bad taste and I hold myself to a higher journalistic standard than that!

Ha Ha! Look at all the Michael Jackson lovers coming here to defend his holiness!

Turn off American Idol, Oprah….hell, just turn the damn TV off! And get a life!

What a total waste of time. It’s obvious you know little about MJ, and have no class at all.

07/08/2009 04:47 PM

I know enough about MJ. A glorified pedophile who bought his was out of prosecution. If BF has a secret room in his bedroom, with motion sensors in the hallway, I’m sure it’s just to protect his private reserve.

MikeG, if they nominated a felonous scumbag like Rick Hendrick for the Hall of Fame, you can bet that Brian France will sadly be nominated.

07/08/2009 06:43 PM

Oh boy!

07/08/2009 11:47 PM

i LOL’d hard at #3, theres going to be alot of us going to hell for laughing at that..

I’ll take a window seat plz
