Just when I honestly thought that nothing coming out of the Michael Jackson trial could possibly faze me any more...friends, I give you house-cleaning chimpanzees.

Michael Jackson used his pet chimpanzees to clean Neverland ranch, his trial heard yesterday.

The creatures would help the star by dusting, cleaning windows and brushing the toilets, the jury heard.

In a clip of outtakes from Martin Bashir's ITV1 documentary Living With Michael Jackson, the singer described how he got his animals to help with household chores.

Discouraged to discover that enslaving Oompa Loompas is no longer considered politically correct, Michael settled for the next best thing. Rumor has it he also set his chimps at a bunch of typewriters and had them write his last few albums.
