Elvis: a sign of the coming of the Messianic Age?

Elvis: a sign of the coming of the Messianic Age? Yup, Elvis Memphimus Rex Rocandrollus. He has his own shrine in Jerusalem. And now Schmelvis resurrects the King. (Not to be confused with Schelvis , though, a tasty treat of a different order).

And of course, we can't forge Extreme Elvis (note: not for the faint of heart)

Shmelvis, hah? What could be bad?
I mean we've already got El Vez.

Elvis: He Da Mensch.
And his middle name was Aaron.
Conspiracy theorize that for awhile...

You mean to say this is what the King has been up to since he "died"?

The mind boggles...

Elvis is everywhere, man!
He's in everything
He's in everybody...

Elvis is in your jeans
He's in your cheesburgers
Elvis is in Nutty Buddies!
Elvis is in your mom!

He's in everybody
He's in the young, the old
the fat, the skinny
the white, the black
the brown and the blue people got Elvis in 'em too

Elvis is in everybody out there
Everybody's got Elvis in them!
Everybody except one person that is...
Yeah, one person!
The evil opposite of Elvis
The Anti-Elvis
Anti-Elvis got no Elvis in 'em
Lemme tell ya
Michael J. Fox has no Elvis in him.

And there's always The 24-hour Church of Elvis in Portland, OR.

And Elvis so loved the world that he died, fat and bloated, in a bathroom.
He very pointedly did not rise from the dead three days later, but was nonetheless seen across the world by various and sundry housewives...
