Be a hero! That big bad Michael enjoys dropping his kids off balconies, and it's up to you to stop him... just don't get hit by falling vinyl!

Pretty fun. Especially since I found a way to cheat. If you catch the baby up higher towards the balcony, then drag the basket down after the baby turns into a star, you can catch it two or three more times.

C'mon. Enough of this already. It's not even good flash.

The original news post was deleted (each of the three or four times it was posted). I know it's Friday, and there's something of a Flash tradition around here, but wouldn't we be better off deleting this too? It's not a particularly interesting story, and monju is right: as Flash it plain sucks.

Snarkyness aside, here's an alternative featuring Janet, Tito, and Marlon Jackson as well. (via davezilla).

i'm inclined to agree with them. metafilter should not be a list of links destined to be crappy forwards.

(which i still get. what the hell people? sending someone something that's been forwarded a million times does not make me feel special. just write me an email! man, i'm so bitter.)

Well, Goats has a nice sick, twisted and possibly NSFW strip about Michael's motivations.

"A good post to MetaFilter is something that meets the following criteria: most people haven't seen it before, there is something interesting about the content on the page, and it might warrant discussion from others."

It's debatable whether it meets any of those criteria, but I'm more than happy to leave that decision up to Matt. Personally, I thought it was some crudely cobbled-together Flash based on a not-particularly-interesting story that made for a not-particularly-entertaining game. To each his or her own. I just don't think we should use "aw, don't be a party pooper" or "sure it's crap, but it's Friday" as an excuse for bad posts.

Of course, if it were up to me, there'd be a moratorium on Michael Jackson posts altogether.
