…Hopes you have a good weekend.  He also wants you to know that he loves you all.  He loves you very, very much.  I mean, wow, he loves you so much, it’s almost indecent.  Strike that, it is indecent.  But if loving you is wrong, Skeletor doesn’t wanna be right.

Ah. you laugh.  See, if you’d only love Skeletor back, just a little, he’d stay in Snake Mountain and leave Eternia at peace.  But no, you mock Skeletor, and now he must lash out, using all his powers to destroy you.  Even the Terror Claws – don’t make him use the Terror Claws!

Anyway, Have a good weekend.  And all hail Skeletor.

    Skeletor lives in Snake Mountain btw… that’s a great logo though -I’m almost tempted to get it tattooed.

    Skeletor needs $$$ as well, don’t forget that. And his army of zombies will provide.

  • 3 Matt on Mar 7, 2009 at 7:38 am

    Or else!!!

    It’s sad to see Skeletor this way…It used to be diffrent…He had quite a voice too, before…but these days…Eh.

    I guess Bubbles stood in for Beast Man

    Now more then ever, we need He-Man.

    I’m scared…….

    So, all that surgery wasn’t designed to make him look more like Diana Ross after all. I have a much higher opinion of his plastic surgeon’s ability now. That work is spot on, in fact.

    And the glove must have been to hide at least one of the terror claws. Creepy.

    The glaring error has been corrected, and my ignorance of the Masters of the Universe is baldly apparent. I shall retire to Castle Greyskull and beat myself.

    Anyone else remember the scandal Sir Skeletor caused with his crotch-grabbing performance of “Black or White?” My ten-year-old brain was irreparably scarred. And we thought he was horrible then! Oh, God, if only he remained as congenial and normal as he was in his “chilling with Macaulay Culkin” days.

    Have any Vegas odds been posted yet as to whether Jackson actually goes through with the London concerts yet? I am guessing the odds are overwhelmingly against MJ actually honoring a commitment he has made for the rest of his life.

  • 12 Scarlett on Mar 7, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    There goes any hope I had in trying to observe Sleep Awareness Week.

    Seriously, every time I look at MJ I’m reminded of that Lloyd Bridges character from the Hot Shots movies who basically had every part replaced with something inorganic at one point or another.

  • 13 jason on Mar 7, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    Of course Skeletor has already shown his true evil by capturing all the rights to the Lennon/ McCartney Beatles songs…
    What’ll be next (I say it’ll be unleashing the flying monkeys, my pretties)?

    Best line ever:

    “Michael Jackson proves that in America a young black boy can grow up to be an old white woman.”


  • 15 MonkeyCheezPants on Mar 7, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    Truth… revealed!

  • 16 Joyless Prole on Mar 7, 2009 at 1:41 pm

    I hope he keeps that sword sheathed for once.

  • 17 randommanthefirst on Mar 7, 2009 at 1:53 pm

    “Oh, massage chair, if we were in Canada, I would make you my bride.”

    I’m sorry.

  • 18 Kris on Mar 7, 2009 at 1:53 pm

    This made me groan so loudly, me housemate thought I’d shattered a kneecap or something.

    On getting over my scaredy-catness, and looking closer (but not too close now) I now refuse to believe that it’s really him.

  • 22 Natureboy (Ken) on Mar 7, 2009 at 6:27 pm

    Oh jeez! everytime I see Michael Jackson, I think his face is going to slide off and go right down his shirt….

  • 23 Chris D. on Mar 8, 2009 at 11:00 am

    If that’s Skeletor I’d hate to see what “Ram Man” looks like.

  • 24 Remmie Barrow on Mar 8, 2009 at 11:59 am

    Don’t you know…He looks just like Gary Busey.

  • 25 Casey on Mar 8, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    lots of love in those eyes…. if there are any.

  • 26 NRRork on Mar 8, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    For years now, I’ve been expecting him to rip off his face and reveal a Terminator skull underneath.

  • 27 Montagthemagician on Mar 9, 2009 at 5:17 am

    I don’t believe this is the real Michael. This guy’s nose is different, his chin is much longer and his voice is much deeper. Maybe the real MJ still looks like he did in Thriller and we’ve been seeing stand ins all these years.

  • 28 Nick Fechter on Mar 9, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    please don’t grab your crotch-please don’t grab your crotch-please don’t grab your crotch….

  • 29 Ann Peek on Mar 10, 2009 at 1:54 pm

    Holy cow!

  • 30 jonnyfrag on Mar 12, 2009 at 12:52 pm

    The little guy from Men In Black that’s driving him is sitting behind there. Or Eddie Murphy.

  • 31 Ronin Fox on Mar 15, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    It’s good to see I wasn’t the only one working to contribute to Skeletor Awareness Week. You may buy my iRiff of Masters of the Universe the movie to bring out the spirit of that week as we move forward into a more Snake Mountain-oriented future.

    And his lawyers need to be paid!
