Though Michael Jackson has departed, our friends at BWE have graciously reminded us that we shouldn't forget those he left behind: in particular, BUBBLES THE CHIMP! If you can remember back to 1987, you'll know that Jackson was rarely seen without his adorable little hirsute pal. For good-time memories check out this video of Michael and Bubbles visiting Japan, in which the chimp demonstrates his impeccable table manners, devout religion, and the ability to moonwalk. Wait… MOONWALK?!?!

BTW, Michael is survived by Bubbles who is currently alive, well, and enjoying his retirement at a ranch in Sylmar, California.
