The Barry White murder defense


We are culturally so steeped in satire that it’s often hard to tell when people are being serious. But there was a segment on Good Morning America today about a Georgia man accused of murder who is pleading insanity because a six-foot demon in the guise of burbling soul serenader Barry White (“Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Baby”) told him to kill.

How could he claim Barry made him do it?

Apparently this evil spirit was stronger than the angel who he claims also appeared to him with the face of Olivia Newton John (“Let’s Get Physical”).

Look, I don’t want to tell the judiciary in the great state of Georgia how to do its job, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t a credible plea. If I’m not mistaken, it’s an episode of South Park. Or it should be.

Here’s a takeout bag of Stan singing Barry’s “I've Found Someone”.
