Happy birthday to the King

Hi Brit,

As I’m sure everyone knows, Elvis was born on this day back in 1935.  I suspect this anniversary is what provoked my usually unreliable source to send me this:


“This photograph documents the first meeting between President Nixon and Elvis.  However, it is not going to be the last time the two will meet.  The bodies of each were quick frozen immediately upon their deaths and the corpses will be among the cargo shipped to the secret polar moon base.  The plan is to clone them and, using secret military technology, copy their memories into their new brains.  Nixon is being included because some of The Powers That Be suspect he still has deep cover operatives in their organization who will sabotage the escape project if the ex-president isn’t included.  Elvis is going because, well why not.”

I must say, I hope at least part of this is true.

    When did Elvis die? This post’s a joke, right?

    Elvis died not long before his daughter married Michael Jackson.

    If my daughter even dared to put Michael Jackson on the CD player I’d wake from the dead!

    I had a friend in college who worked for the student run radio station. He did a three hour show every week that was nothing but requests. One week a bunch of us took turns calling during the entire show and requesting MJ songs. The next day, as if by magic, there was a stack of MJ albums outside my dorm room.
