A spokesperson for Graceland, Elvis's former home and museum, says the legend is still buried in the garden to the best of her knowledge.

Obviously she's hiding something... but what could it be?

spilon: "Obviously she's hiding something... but what could it be?"

Clearly it's the "evidence" that Elvis' middle name "Aron" is misspelled on his grave marker as "Aaron", so obviously whoever's buried there is someone not-the-King (of course, his middle name was only spelled "Aron" because the doctor misspelled it on his birth certificate, but that's quibbling over a minor detail in the face of overwhelming proof that he's still alive and living in Tweed, Ontario).

This is obviously true because if you had a patient that faked his own death, he'd have no problem whatsoever with you spilling the beans on it to the Australian Broadcasting Company.

Elvis has not been seen anywhere else. He's living in my basement, living on a diet of live chickens and deep-fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I didn't want to adopt him, but my wife thought he was cute, and looking hungry. I said that we would feed him once, but now I can't get rid of him. He's already savaged one animal control officer, and the rest won't deal with him. His random singing at night is keeping me up. Any suggestions anyone?

Samizdata: a couple of episodes of "Family Ties" or "Spin City" should do the trick. You just need a little evil anti-Elvis.

C'mon now. Everybody knows that Elvis was really just a front for Edward De Vere. I mean, Christopher Marlowe. I mean ...
