12 Angry Man-childs

The jury is IN!

“Among the jurors is a woman who said her grandson was required to register as a sex offender; a woman who said she was related to the pilot of one of the planes that went down in the September 11 terror attacks; a 20-year-old man who likes The Simpsons and a man who is interested in Western art and country music.”

This bears a striking resemblance to something Clown Coffee sent me earlier today regarding the jury selection process:

“At various points, questioning [of Jackson jurors] veered beyond the mundane into the seemingly irrelevant.

A 45-year-old juror, who described herself as unemployed, said she has read no newspaper accounts of the Jackson case. She mentioned that she likes food.

‘And what are your favorite foods?’ asked lead defense attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr.

‘Um, I like vegetables,’ she replied.”

Is it just me, or are Michael Jackson’s peers a bunch of weird idiots? Look, I like food and The Simpsons too, but I’m not really sure how that would impact my ability to objectively interpret a pedophilia trial against the world’s most famous pop star. Also, um, I like vegetables.
