The tooth that bit into 1,000 burgers?? When did he lose this tooth, like 1958? He bit into more than 1,000 burgers at some family picnics.

That headline inspires thoughts of a Las Vegas style Jurassic Park. Where Sammy Davis Jr.'s devour the masses like packs of velociraptors and T.Rex Elvis himself gobbles up a few co-stars.

They found a piece of fried banana and peanut butter in a cavity, that's how they knew it was his.

Remember that awful 'Multiplicity'? I wonder just how stupid the fifth copy of Elvis would be - doing duets with Mariah Carey and Justin Timberlake?

Bump, honey, you crack me up. See, living in the South is GOOD for you!

An Elvis clone? Hmmmm this could cause quite the "Evlis Spotting trend". "Hey I saw Elvis at the 7-11." "No you didn't, I saw him at the Sip -n- Go."
2003-07-08 09:28:54 AM  
It's a good idea. Clone Elvis, let him live until right before the Fat Elvis period, kill him, lather, rinse, repeat.

That headline inspires thoughts of a Las Vegas style Jurassic Park.

If that ever happens I got dibs on Sinatra. Fly me to the moon, baby.

Can you even imagine how much an Elvis concert ticket would go for in this day and age? People would pay tens of thousands.
2003-07-08 09:32:25 AM  
I think Lisa Marie has proven that Elvis DNA is no sure-fire guarantee of musical success.

I usually hate people who go completely off topic but look at her legs/crotch(?)! WTF

Sorry to people who've had to read my posts over the past hour or so, i've clearly been in a funny/sick mood.

The king is dead, long live the king.

"The frothy brown goo is not sewage. I repeat, the frothy brown goo is not sewage!"

I think they got the message.

As you were...

Damn, wrong thread.

My bad.

But seriously... the king is dead...time to move on...he ceased to exists no more...he is all kinged out...he departed the world of the living...he has gone to meet his maker...he is...he is...he is an ex-king!

not to change the subject but does everyone have itty bitty font sizes now too at fark?
2003-07-08 09:56:50 AM  
UberFist - you're right you know, I saw the special olympics on the TV on saturday, they had midget shot-put. it was one of the funniest things i've ever seen. I was waiting for the high jump but sadly it never came.
2003-07-08 09:59:49 AM  

OK last one, but i've pound another potential Elvis Clone picture of the MiniElvis variety.

It would appear i've been busted, minielvis is here.
2003-07-08 10:03:30 AM  
What's to say that the cloned Elvis wont have a penchant for gay porn? Here we expect this guy to sing and entertain us with karate chops in a cape - and he goes into gay porn and disgraces the legend. DESTROY THE TOOF!
2003-07-08 10:03:32 AM  
was it big people throwing midgets shotput style?
2003-07-08 10:06:56 AM  
UberFist - It was the special olympics for god sake. no it wasn't big peole throwing little people. It was on the BBC on saturday afternoon. For dwarf tossing i think you need to subscribe to cable or something.
2003-07-08 10:09:45 AM  
If I'm going to bid over one hundred thousand dollars, I'd like to see a GOOD picture of the hair and tooth...

And so we come full circle from the reliqueries of the saints 600 years ago to the reliqueries of the celebrated today.

Still no cure for cancer.

That is all.

Keep it away from any chicken sandwiches.
2003-07-08 10:51:10 AM  
I thought I saw Elvis the other day. He was shorter, younger and Jamaican, but I'm sure it was him.
2003-07-08 11:07:49 AM  
What sicko would want to own someone's tooth...even if it is Elvis'? Where's Darwin when you need him.

A clipping, about the size of a cricket ball, was sold at auction for $115,120 (70,000) last November

a cricket ball? that must be one tiny piece of hair....oh uh never mind.
2003-07-08 12:21:34 PM  
Seriously, I'm with elcoin. What would you do with it? I can think of better ways to spend that kind of dough.
2003-07-08 01:38:13 PM  
I think cloning is going to make for some great entertainment. I just wish they'd get a clonin' already!
2003-07-08 03:25:29 PM  
Elvis was an overrated lounge singer.
2003-07-08 03:39:36 PM  
Me and Elvis, Elvis and I

you never heard it
2003-07-08 04:25:03 PM  
I saw some Elvis documentery a while back and they interviewed the
lady that prepared the meals a Graceland and she gave out the goods
on peanut-butter and banana sandwiches. Yeah it's simple, but if
you want to experience the EXACT Elvis version, it is:

+ Slather one piece of white bread with peanut-butter
+ Put 'nanner slices upon said peanut-butter
+ Place other piece of white bread on top.
+ Heavily butter the outside portions
+ Pan fry until golden brown

I had to try it, as I love fattening foods, but I just couldn't get into the
combination of flavors. Probably for the best.

Perhaps I should have washed it down with one
of these
