    Death is a sad thing. The only thing that can cheer you up is money.
    So, how did you capitalize off the death of good old wacko-jacko today?

    I found out early this morning about his passing, and instatnely though about all the people out there that already had thecogs in motion to make some money. Firstly, checked all the obvious domains, RIPmichaeljackson.com , deadmichaeljackson.com etc... All taken. And this was fuckin early this morning GMT time.

    Next i checked out digg. Holy crap, there is one article which has over 20 000 diggs!

    Someone posted here earlier about MJ ringtones - nice one.

    I made a couple of pretty poor blog entries, one with as many MJ jokes as I could put together, & one titled "Michael Jackson - a life in photos" (very gay). Submitted both to digg and haven't made much, simply becase of the flood of MJ content being submitted today.

    So, who of y'all made some decent cash today of this oh-so-tragic event?
    What was your method?
