Dying In America

James BrownSo, as most of you know, James Brown has passed away, and if you didn't know I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but he did.  It might be time to fire up Rocky IV for a little tribute if you haven't already.

However I wouldn't be suprised if you had forgotten that James Brown died because he died on Christmas Day.  That's fastly approaching three months ago.   And he was finally, albeit temporarily, laid to rest on Saturday. 

Al Sharpton gave an over annunciated eulogy and the Godfather of Soul was placed in the crawl space of one of his daughter's houses until a more suitable shrine can be erected.   

Yet, where was he for the last 73 days?  Sure there was a couple of public viewings, but the way this estate seems to be getting handled I wouldn't be surprised if the family accidentally left him in the trunk of a taxi cab after one of the viewings.

Of course, he did have a different costume for each of the viewings, so perhaps his grandkids kept him around for a couple of weeks so they could play dress up a little longer. 

Unfortunately the fun ended when little Susie accidentally snapped off Grandpa's arm.
