Joe Jackson is bringing a half a billion dollars lawsuit against Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray - presumably angry that if he managed to not kill Jackson, he doesn't see why Conrad did.
How did he come up with the half a billion figure?
His theory -- "The more you go, the less you get ... so I went high."That doesn't really make any sense - if you think you get less if you ask for more, then wouldn't asking for an absurd amount be the wrong thing to do? Shouldn't Jackson be looking for $20, in order to get 100% of his demand?
In fact, given that the death of Jackson junior has allowed Joe to develop a lucrative Dead Michael business, shouldn't Murray be suing him for a share of the proceeds?
