He should have been in a proper grave.

But there was no-one left who could dig it.

Alternatively

The more awesome (and entirely reasonable) solution is that even now a zombie James Brown is stalking America! He's 'Doing it to Death' and 'Living in America'.

The spangly one with 'Make It Funky' on the back please.

Interesting

I live in that area and there is nothing on the local news pertaining to his remains as missing. Trust me, when James Brown did anything, it was on the local news for a week.

Get Up Offa That Thing

It makes me sick. Seems we've come a long way from the days when people protested the horror of body snatching. Am afraid James Brown is as useful as a chocolate tea pot. Spare us the charade for pity's sake!

"Brown died on Christmas Day 2006"

Seems like only yesterday. I can still hear James Brown's last words. "Heeoooww, I don't feel so good."

funny

The funny thing is that in his act was always that he was walking away only to keep coming back time after time.

I guess he is making one more comeback.

He made a deal with the devil

Nobody seen the BMW Films "The Hire", specifically "Beat the Devil" (http://www.bmwblog.com/2009/08/25/video-collection-bmw-films-the-hire/)

Clive Owen would be my No. 1 suspect.

WTF?

How long does it take to build a mausoleum?

I have to ask the question "How long does it take to Mausoleum?" He died at the end of 2006, its now 3 months into 2010 - and the mausoleum still isnt built? What are they doing building him a pyramid (in the old egyptian style)? the Taj Mahal perhaps?

No wonder he got up and left, probably just wanted to find a permanent home!

Enough already! My keyboard was already in a bad way, and that's now finished it. Half a mouthful of tea goes a fair way when it explodes out of your mouth. I hope you're happy! ;-)
