Brando Island
Or, Survivor: Onetahi

Self indulgent thespian-freak Marlon Brando, who may have had a "disturbing" attraction to little girls (Averted Gaze), bequeathed to the Jacko sanctuary on his little Pacific island. George Rush writes:

"According to the deed, Brando transferred use of a half-acre on the islet of Onetahi, in the French Polynesian atoll of Tetiaroa, 'in consideration of gratitude and affection.'

" ... In 1976, Brando arranged for American Indian Movement leader Dennis Banks to fly by private plane to Onetahi after he was indicted for assault and inciting a riot. Brando also spirited his daughter, Cheyenne, to Tahiti after she witnessed his son, Christian, shoot her lover, Dag Drollet, in 1990."

Could you imagine a Survivor: Brando Island challenge? It would involve little South Pacific boys runing a course over land and water -- racing through the jungle -- to escape from a "tee-hee"-ing Michael Jackson.

Ever since "Brando Island" was mentioned in the news, The Corsair has wondered what it would be like, being a Pirate and all. Probably sweet papaya-scented Golden boys running about lightly dressed. Monkeys, possibly even a fruitmonkey or two, cavort about. Strong drink of fiery waters made from organic island vegetation.

On second thought -- Dear Lord -- we'd rather not think about a Jacko on Brando Island scenario.

But how in the world would he manage to achieve the gutteral grunts necessary to talk like a pirate? I can't imagine him pulling off a convincing "ARRRGGGG".

But he'll probably "hide the treasure" in the Polynesian boy really good.

Thanks to you, I have visions of monkeys in my head.

The only way that could get any better is if you tossed in a few midgets.

That is all. Thank you.
