Meanwhile, lucky fans celebrated when they got an e-mail saying they had scored the hottest ticket in town. “Congratulations, your application was successful,” said the message sent to Deka Motanya, 27, of San Francisco.
She immediately Twittered: “OMG OMG OMG OMG i got tickets to the michael jackson memorial service!!!”
It was a real-life version of Willy Wonka’s golden tickets. Each selected person gets a pair of free tickets, with the odds of being chosen about 1 in 183.
Is it just me, but isn’t it kind of twisted that someone could get so excited over someone’s death (and memorial service)?
