James Brown’s Last Laugh

James_brown I’ve come to the conclusion that the controversy surrounding who has control of James Brown’s body was orchestrated by the Godfather himself. After all, he was, for the most part, a savvy businessman who undoubtedly had an army of attorneys at his command. It’s impossible to believe that at least one of them didn’t advise him of the importance of leaving explicit instructions about making funeral arrangements.

However, since he left behind a number of ex-wives and a assorted relatives and hangers-on who probably caused him all kinds of trouble while he was alive, I can’t help believing he knew exactly what he was doing andis getting the last laugh by leaving them with a big mess to deal with after his death. It’s not hard to picture him spinning around and exuberantly shouting, “Oww! I feel good!”
