Hey everyone,

Little known fact - some celebrities have patented some inventions.

Michael Jackson has a patent on what in magic circles is an effect called "The Lean" (Wonder if Doug Malloy knows about that?)

Houdini apparently holds a patent for a divers suit... (So that's how he stayed submerged for so long...)

Check out a few more celebrity patents at

I thought this thread was going to be a little more morbid.

Something along the lines of MJ buying the bones of the elephant man.

Even Houdini couldn't help Michael Jackson escape where he's imprisoned himself now.

If you punched Michael in the stomach, his nose would pop off.

Interesting that google allows patent searches, just think- next year, when the patent runs out, we will all be able to make our own burger balloons (sorry Steve) Smile
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

I thought Jamie Lee Curtis' idea was genius.
