E is for ELVIS

For the letter E, let’s focus on....

Elvis

Why not? We can do a Pronoun for these too!

And what’s not to like about Elvis. We’ve got a lot of different Elvis we can cover too. There’s the “king” and then there’s Costello. We should probably start with the King. Do you realize that if Elvis were still alive he’d only be 74 years old? I had no idea that Zha Zha Gabor was old enough to be his mother and she’s still alive and slapping policeman…

Of course, were Elvis to be still alive I’m sure he’d look like…

But then again, he might have changed his ways…

That’s the thing about Elvis; you’ve got several versions of him. It’s like the Batman movies where they keep changing the actor but it’s the same character.

There’s the skinny rock pioneer Elvis.


There’s the soldier Elvis

There’s the movie star Elvis

And finally there’s the fat Vegas Elvis.

And then you have all of the conspiracy theories where people don’t believe he actually died. Instead, he’s playing poker on some island with JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Jimmy Hoffa and Michael Jackson.

But his disappearance from life (or the limelight) has left us with a hole in the Vegas universe and fortunately for us, a whole host of impersonators have filled our Elvis void.

Never-the-less, you’ve still got ways to communicate with the King…

I like the Elvis toast the best.

And I think you've done a great disservice to all the Elvis lovers out there.

I'm sure between lap-band surgery and face lifts he would look better than Michael Jackson did before his untimely death.

Nose prosthesis anyone? Anyone?

hee hee

Jaime said...

NO!!!!!!!!!! that first picture of elvis is just wrong.

no one should be allowed to dress like that. ever!

Quirkyloon said...

Hey! I just thought of something. (And yes I know this comment doesn't go towards the tally... hater!)

Elvis Elvis Elvis starts with Eeeeeeeeeeeee!

hee hee

Matty said...

After this Elvis tour, I'm all shook up.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Ewwwww! That first Elvis has a camel toe!

Baino said...

Elvis toast! Heheh

Gladys said...

Elvis sang me a song in Palm Springs last year. Yes, Elvis is in Palm Springs and is about 40 years younger than he should be. It's a miracle. That picture on the toast must be like the picture of Dorian Grey.

Elizabeth said...

You should check out our Tlingit Elvis. He's a hoot!

Is that the fat E or the skinny e?

Anndi said...

I can't get past that first Elvis.

Janna said...

"playing poker on some island with JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Jimmy Hoffa and Michael Jackson..."

And Amelia Earhart.
And Gilligan.

JGH said...

Ronda directed me here because I have a missing gnome. But I ended up reading and reading and reading! Totally fun blog ya got here.

ReformingGeek said...

Um...that first photo isn't just camel toe. It's moose jaw. OUCH!, said my eyes.

Shake it, shake it...up!

lime said...

I'm gonna pretend I didn't see this and cast my vote for Elvira!

Mrsupole said...

E is for ewwwwwww, an especially big EWWWWWWWWW for that first pic of had Elvis lived. And that is just oh so not helping me to get rid of my migraine.

Although the Elvis toast with a cup of hot tea, and some aspirin, well that might help. Along with keeping my eyes closed so as to not see any more of Elvis wanna be's.

God bless.

Kurt said...

Don't forget the Elvis in the karate outfit doing kicks while singing "I'm Caught in a Trap." That's the Elvis I remember.

Roy Scribner said...

This post leaves me all shook up!

CatLadyLarew said...

I'd eat up that Elvis toast!

ryan field said...

I wonder if this will happen to Michael Jackson, too.

Anne said...

more E buildings

VE said...

quirkyloon - I wonder too just what Elvis would have done had he been around during the cosmetic surgery times. Yikes!

jaime - I agree...but remember...I am just the messenger...

quirkyloon - I knew I'd get a few ewwwws and eeeees for that first pic...

matty - Ha! Good one! I agree

perpetual chocoholic - Nabbed my "ewwwww" right off the mark! By the way...did you know my initials in real life actually are "EWW"? This is why I can provide you these types of photos...

baino - You want some...admit it!

gladys - What? Dorien is grey? I suggest over the counter hair coloring; it provides a nice shade of red...

elizabeth - Boy, I thought the natives had more sense...Ha!

ronda - Looks like I went with the fat E

anndi - It's good to see a familiar face back again! Sorry about the shock photo...you know how ridiculous it is around here though...

janna - Yes...we cannot leave Gilligan out. I'm still waiting for those hats to come back into popularity...

jgh - Welcome. My gnomes don't typically like to mingle with wayward gnomes unless they have money. But they'll keep a lookout nonetheless...

reforminggeek - Ha! Moose Jaw? Sarah Palin might go for it...

lime - A dark time for Vegas, I fear...

uncivil - That would have been a good one...thanks for suggesting AFTER I finish...

mrsupole - You see what happens to my posts when you're not first!

kurt - Leave it to you to find one I haven't seen...

roy - Sounds like you need a pilgramige to Graceland while singing Paul Simon...

catladylarew - With butter?

ryan - Good question. You don't see a lot of other dead singers being impersonated. I haven't seen one other Sinatra or Jim Morrison impersonator...

VE said...

anne - I suspected there might be more...

GC (God's Child) said...

when Bill Bixby died, my belief in the Elvis conspiracy died too

Candie Bracci said...

HAHAHA!LMAO!Isn't that Chirac?Priceless!Even like that he has more presence than the other one..you know the other one!I should shut up now.Nice post!

Serena said...

Do you suppose they'll ever do this stuff for Elvis Costello? God, I hope not!

Anne said...

I used to work in the bigger of those two.

VE said...

gc - I liked Bill Bixby. I used to watch the Courtship of Eddies Father and Incredible Hulk...

serena - I hope not too...

anne - Really? That's funny I should find and pick that...

Jeff said...

ReformingGeek: Ok, that's the first time I've heard of moose jaw. Dare I look it up?

VE said...

jeff - Oh sure...now you show up to comment with my readers...

Megan said...

OMG is actually toast week in disguise and I effing missed it?

ARGH!

VE said...

megan - You lost me...do I have a subliminal toast theme going on?

Maureen said...

Moose Jaw is in Saskatchewan! ;)

And I had an Elvis song as our first dance at our wedding.

Yes, I AM that old.

VE said...

maureen - I hope they all don't do that in Saskatchewan! You are THAT old, eh?
