Michael Jackson's father Joe just finished his Sunday morning breakfast at an IHOP in Encino, CA and while everyone deals with grief differently he appeared to be anything but in mourning..

Sitting with a male friend, Michael's long-estranged dad was "laughing, smiling and joking" the whole time, an eyewitness at the next table told  At one point he mentioned dealing with Michael’s life insurance.

There was no sign of grieving on Joe's part, and no mention of the fate of Michael's children, the source said. The eyewitness thought Joe’s behavior was strange in that he was so upbeat just days after his son’s death.

Joe, who turns 80 later this month, had a tortured relationship with Michael, his superstar son who died June 25.  For the record, Joe had coffee, eggs and sausage to start his day.
