"Michael Jackson to be buried without his brain"

...up there in the "best-headline-ever" Hall of Fame, rivaling"Headless Body in Topless Bar".

Adn the story almost outperforms the headline. Yeah, I know, it's The Mirror, but damn, this is good:

Michael Jackson will be buried this week– without his brain. As his family tries to finalise details for the King of Pop’s funeral on Tuesday they have been told it will be held back for tests.

They faced the grim choice of waiting up to three weeks for Jackson’s brain to be returned to them or go ahead and bury him without it – which they have decided to do.

...the examination cannot begin until at least two weeks after the death when the brain has hardened sufficiently to slice it open....

...and then, perhaps, re-animated a la "Frankenstein" into the body of brother Tito?
