PRINCE Charming has been handed a 48-hour deadline to get to the Neverland Ranch and attempt to revive Michael Jackson.
Preparations are currently being made to place the singer in a glass coffin which will then be surrounded by an honour guard of seven dwarves in their dress mining uniforms.
Tom Logan, the Jackson family lawyer, said: "It's up to Prince Charming now. The ball is very much in his court."
The dwarves hope the Prince can find a horse that is strong enough and fast enough to carry him the 150 miles from the Disneyland Castle in Anaheim and rouse the star from what one bearded Neverland insider described as 'the very deepest of sleeps'.
Jackson was declared dead last week after being injected with the juice from a poisoned apple, which police believe was supplied by a very ugly old woman with a large wart on the end of her nose.
The Neverland source added: "Just last week we watched him rehearse a lovely song about how one day his prince would come. He was on terrific form and didn't even need the woodland creatures to help him get dressed. And now this."
A spokesman for Prince Charming said: "His royal highness developed a very close friendship with Mr Jackson after returning one of his shoes, but we think some people may have got the wrong end of the stick, as it were.
"He's very sad at the way things have turned out, but he thinks it would be best if everyone just moved on with their lives."
The spokesman added: "He will attend the funeral but then he fully intends to continue with his plans to spend the summer having acrobatic sex with a wide selection of European princesses and doing a bit of shopping."
