A suburb of Elvis

The Elvis World Cup, a competition for Elvis impersonators, takes place in Cardiff this weekend. Some say that if impersonators keep increasing at the rate they are today, by 2020 one in four people on the planet will be an Elvis impersonator. Swedish Elvis. Chinese Elvis. Jewish Elvis. Lady Elvis. Black Elvis. Lesbian Elvis. Child Elvis. Mexican Elvis. The King, an impersonator who covers the songs of dead people in an Elvis stylee.

The Most Frightening Sandwich In The World

Often described as Elvis's favorite sandwich, the Fool's Gold Loaf has to be seen to be believed. Not satisfied with mere still pictures? Try the video from this Spokesman-Review story. Even in its glory, though, the Fool's Gold Loaf is just one (three-pound) part of the Elvis gastronomen: if you want to eat like Elvis, the way is clear. And, of course, there are plenty of cookbooks.

Did he use diet bread and reduced-fat peanut butter?

Twenty-two browned, hollowed-out loaves of Italian white bread. Twenty-two pounds of bacon. Twenty-two jars of peanut butter. Twenty-two jars of jelly. Forty-eight tablespoons of butter. A case of Perrier. A case of champagne. And the King.

Craptinued

I wish Elvis had lived long enough to record La Vida Loca... but since he did not, I have to content myself with "Kingtinued", a CD of modern, largely A.E.D. (After Elvis' Death) tunes recorded in the style of the large one. Only the highest quality material was selected for the CD, to be sure.

The King Lives!

The King Lives! Elvis is back on top of the United Kingdom Singles chart with the remix of "A Little Less Conversation". This is Elvis' 17th UK #1 moving him past the Beatles for the most ever. In other news, Disney's Lilo and Stitch features an Elvis imitating alien. All this is in advance of the 25th Anniversary of the King's Passing, which will be commemorated with an RCA album "ELV1S 30 #1 Hits", which is to include all #30 of Elvis' hits internationally. The King Truly Lives!

Oops, I guess we missed Elvis' return (and so did everyone else). This guy claims to have met the ghost of Elvis, and that 'The King' wrote songs for him from the grave. Need a bigger laugh? Then check out the audio clips on the home page.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis has most definitely left this universe!"
