As the world's biggest Elvis fan, I'm going to bid on this. Hopefully, at some point, they will put his actual corpse up for auction. Then Elvis and I can live in the crypt like we were destined. If he hasn't been well preserved and his remains are skeletal, I'll probably have to buy a ham, remove the bone, and pound it into his pelvic cavity. I've been practicing on the bodies of tribute artists. With your eyes closed, it feels like the real thing.

I believe that the sandwiches were fried in bacon fat, though.

More profit in selling urn space in an infomercial with free collector plates of the Elvis than too just auction it. No promise that you will stay in there permantly, just a one year lease. Next to your plate.

I was very disappointed the Cafe at Graceland did not serve Fried Peanut Butter and Banana sandwiches.

i lived in Memphrica for five years and i avoided graceland and that area because i wasn't interested in the prostitutes there and i liked not having to lock my car doors while stopped at a traffic light.

For a couple of years I would go to Memphis every 6 weeks for business, I have not been for 4 years so tell me have they cracked down on the overly aggressive panhandlers? I would be sitting at a bar and a panhandler would approach me, hell people getting off work would ask for money. It was insane there.
 
2012-05-29 11:15:44 AM
well... they make them get licensed to beg for money. so i'm not really sure that's called cracking down.

It is worth going to once. You can see the media room with **3** televisions in it. Oooohhh. Harvest Gold appliances in the kitchen. How... 70s of him.

After that, you've been to Graceland. Not like anything has changed recently. It is kind of surprising how small the house was. I've been to regular people's houses that were bigger. The racquetball court would be nice.

PsyLord: I'm here for the Britney jokes,ya'll.


Huh. The idea of doing Britney on top of Elvis' tomb, surrounded by the scent of bacon and peanut butter is uniquely arousing to me.

That's something I wouldn't have expected.

Maybe it would stop the guy walking out of the employee's entrance to the Doubletree (I think that was name of it) next to the Peabody and asking me for cab fare home since I was wearing a suit in August at 10 in the morning.

Was passing through Memphis some years back. My wife wanted to see Graceland. It was ultimate "white trash with money" decor. And the nut jobs out in the yard crying that they just couldn't bear to go up to see his grave.

/Thank you...thank you very much

I think it's a growing up poor thing. Two of my cousins have done quite well for themselves, especially considering the family home didn't have indoor plumbing until '78. They're now in a competition to completely cover their nearly identical homes in top-of-the-line camouflage from the Cabella's catalogue.

Oh man... I have a friend that I went to school with in Louisiana and her entire family are duck hunters. A couple years ago she sent me a picture of their living room. There was a huge mural in the living room of the marsh with a duck blind and water fowl flying around. All the furniture was the camouflage from Bass Pro. Then a few months ago she posted an image of her husband taking a nap on the couch... dressed in camouflage. You had to look hard to see someone was on the couch.

The only thing worse, in my opinion, are the animal- themed collections in the kitchens of several of my aunts. Pigs, ducks, cows, you name it. One of them has a chicken themed house where the collection overflows into the adjacent fields, home to hundreds of my uncle's game chickens. Oddly enough, they buy their eggs at the store.

I hear Michael J. Fox is in the running and if he wins the world will end. Fox's remains entombed in Elvis' crypt is akin to dividing by zero

No one in Elvis' inner circle would have dared tell him "no", which is why he ended up dead at the age of 42 from a drug induced cardiac arrhythmia. The style of the decor was the one thing he got to do for himself. As for the media room, keep in mind that back then there were only three television networks. Harvest gold appliances? That was the height of fashion in the mid-1970's for kitchens. The Lincoln? Every American made luxury car had a variation of the padded vinyl roof back in those days. My mom had a 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood with a padded vinyl roof.

No, it wasn't. My mother opted for the less expensive faux crocodile hide, dyed white. She thought it gave her baby blue metallic Caddy "class".

A virtual tour of Graceland here. Pretty cool site.
 
2012-05-29 07:39:00 PM
Good thing to know next time you visit Graceland... in the early morning hours from 7-8AM you can walk through the gates free of charge without being forced to take the shuttle bus and walk around back to the graves.

That's because Graceland's back yard is classified as a cemetery and is compelled to follow regulations of all cemeteries in the county that states it must be opened to the public for at least 1 hour a day.

According to one book about Elvis & his mother, Gladys, his favorite sandwich was peanut butter, sliced bananas, and crisp bacon.
