Michael Jackson Impersonators of all Nations

I'm Michael Jackson - No, I'm the real Jackson. All you other Michael Jacksons are just imitators. So won't the real King of Pop please stand up please stand up please stand up.
(Warning: Angelfire and Geocities links = extreme pop-up action)
With apologies to Eminem. Deep apologies.

To avoid those pop-up's, I suggest Opera. (Though Mozilla firebird works too).

There's also a Michael Jackson running for California Governor.

I went to school with a Mike Myers... always felt a little sorry for him. His parents had no idea...

Don't apologize to Eminem. That will only make him hit you harder.

goethean and woil: I was debating whether or not to include them on my list, but opted not to. That being said, I'm thrilled you added them. There are some others out there, too, but I think the Beer Hunter is the creme de la creme of Jacksons.

If you believe the performers' unions AFTRA and SAG, this is the original Michael Jackson. Its policy is to not allow more than one person to use the exact same name (Michael Fox became Michael J. Fox, 'cause somebody else beat him to the name), but they made an exception for the singer, and the Real Michael Jackson is royally pissed to this day. (But then, as an unemployed liberal talk show host with 150 years experience, he has many other reasons to be...)

The scariest thing about all this is that you actually searched and pulled all these together into a single post.

He's also Austria's Mr. Gay. Unfortunately, he doesn't know how to set <img src>'s

He's also an anthropologist, former professor at the infamous University of Indiana, and (IMO) one of New Zealand's finest poets. Um, just so you know.
