    50' threat to children may be erected in Vegas desert

    Michael Jackson is in discussions about creating a 50-foot robotic replica of himself to roam the Las Vegas desert, according to reports.
    .

    The pop legend is currently understood to be living in the city, as he considers making a comeback after 2004's turbulent child sex case.

    It has now been claimed that his plans include an elaborate show in Vegas, which would feature the giant Jacko striding around the desert, firing laser beams.

    If built, the metal monster would apparently be visible to aircraft as they come in to land in the casino capital.

    It is the centre-piece of an elaborate Jackson-inspired show in Vegas, according to Andre Van Pier, the robot's designer.

    Luckman Van Pier, his partner at the company behind the proposal, claims blueprints have been drawn-up for the show and seen by the star.

    "Michael's looked at the sketches and likes them", he told the New York Daily News.

    On the subject of the robot, he continued: "It would be in the desert sands. Laser beams would shoot out of it so it would be the first thing people flying in would see."

    ...And the last thing they would see in their entire lives, as they plummet to the ground because the pilot has been blinded by a direct hit to the eyes.

    Yeah. This has "Good Idea" written all over it.


    Seriously, though, when I saw the headline, I thought perhaps the Cactus League had decided to erect a statue in honor of the brief, but historic, appearance of Danny Graves.

    I immediately though of ...



    Are those fricken' sharks with fricken' laser beams attached to their fricken' heads?

    The wiring in the 50 foot robot can't be any worse than the wiring in the 5'10" version.

    I have this mental picture of the robot in torment standing on top of an elementary school while planes swoop down and shoot at it.

    Then the robot catches it's reflection in the windows of a nearby skyscraper, screams, and throws itself in the river.

    I have visions of it joining up with Mecha-Barbara Streisand and doing battle with Leonard Maltin, Sidney Poitier, and Robert Smith over the Vegas Strip.
