Truth is Stranger than Fiction

In 1973 Woody Allen made a wonderful science fiction movie called Sleeper

Set in 2173, it tells the story of a man (Allen) who wakes up after being in suspended animation for 200 years. At that time there is a totalitarian government operating in what used to be the United States. ["Resisters to mind reprogramming will be eliminated for the good of state!" "What kind of government ya got here? This is worse than California!"] The head of the government has been blown up by the resistance leaving only a trace behind - his nose. The government plans to clone a new leader from the old leader's nose and it's Allen's job to stop them.

Why do I bring this up? Because it turns out that somebody has stolen Michael Jackson's nose. Apparently somebody in the morgue says that there was only a small hole where his nose should have been.

So right now, are the highups at Jackson's record company trying to clone a whole new Michael Jackson?

So they get to cash in on his death - and his resurrection!
