Wow, some fat lady in a beehive really said the line "If we la-la-la, then the terrorists have won."

Then she battered some chicken with potato chip crumbs. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

If you have enough money to travel from Northampton to Memphis twice a year, then you have enough money to give to charity and not indulge in your sick and POINTLESS obsession. Stupid cow.

I weep for the future.

If these ladies laid off the Big-Macs then they would have raised ALOT more money for charity.

on an even sadder note....I saw on the local news here in Charlotte, that a local Elvis impersonator had named his 1st born son "Elvis"

It showed a pic of the a little hospital baby bed...and he had on a little white outfit with speckle gold puffy paint all over it........

Oh god...the humanity!

Radiofreewill is a very big fan of the '80's sitcom "Small Wonder". It's a fact!

"If we stop coming, the terrorists have won," said Brown, 39 I didn't say it.

Elvis was a radio-friendly unit-shifter, nothing more, folks. Remember that before you decide upon what ridiculous habit you're going to use in order to try and make yourself "eccentric".

And to think that people have actually suggested that those of us who spend time reading amusing articles and making comments have no life.

My life is a roller coaster ride compared to silly biatches.

I thought "Trailer Trash" was confined to the Tonya Harding Mobile Home Park on the outskirts of town. Now I find out that they have white trash in Britain, too?

Happy Birthday, Elvis, wherever you are.

Yo! All you Homies in the Hood! Smuggling cocaine from Jamacia hidden in your own stomaches, the blood-drenced cubicle a testement to captalist aspirations. Go back! Germans return to Germania, Pimp Daddys to the ghetto, Osmama B and his posse are comming to town. Don't think you know the world, don't think you know the world. 'Nu' metal? Hah!

well I know one movie I'm not seeing this summer...not that I'd have seen Lilo and Stitch anyway.

Now my pappy didn't raise me to be very bright, but I do know one thing: That ain't right.

Maybe I haven't had enough coffee yet, but does anyone besides me find it weird that Dave Thomas, king of the cholesterol burger, dies on Elvis' birthday? I'm sure Elvis would have adored those triple heart attack on a bun cheeseburgers that Dave hawked for a living.

These terrorists won!

"Elvis isn't dead, he just went back where he came from."

Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Elvis asked God for some really good hamburgers for his birthday, so God brought him Dave Thomas. Let the feast begin!

Peace to all.

I visited Memphis once. Loved Beale St. and the music history, but jeebus, Graceland is a sewer. Costs like 30 or 40 bucks to see some dudes house and his old jet. Yet the people keep on tromping through. Elvis Enterprises is raking it in.
2002-01-08 12:20:35 PM  
Elvis's birthday today? HE'S DEAD! ...and if he wasn't dead he'd be even more of a 'washed up has been' than any of the remaining Beatles.

Graceland's no fun since they stopped letting Don & Mike broadcast from there.

1. Elvis was not a "unit shifter" (although that sounds strangely dirty). Elvis was an amazing talent - before he let his drug and food addiction turn him into the blob he was before he died.

2. Elvis fans may be white trash, but they are some of THE nicest people you'll ever meet. They're pacifists, basically. Who'd you rather be stuck in an elevator with? These Mom-types or a bunch of smelly WWF fans? Or how about some ghetto-slick rap fans? I'll take the Elvis fans any day.

3. For the person whining about them spending their money on charities instead, I'd like to know how much money he's given to charity in the last five years. If they wanna take a vacation to Graceland instead of the Bahamas, who are you to make fun? Give up yer Spring Break trip to Florida and donate the money to charity instead you idiot and then you can complain about them.

4. Everyone's got a quirk about them. And anyone who loves the USA, Elvis and fried peanut butter samiches is A-OK in my book.

Haven't we had enough of these overweight terminally single geekoid barfly Elvis-worshipping hags? I live in Vegas and you can't throw a stick without hitting one. This is insufferable.

What's really crazy...there's this guy who lives around here whose car is an Elvismobile. He's got pictures of Elvis in the windows, I mean the guy is fanatical!

Oh and I have a locket with Elvis' picture on it...and it has a lock of hair in it (it was my dad's mother's). I wonder if that hair is Elvis', and if so how much I can get on eBay for it.

"Now hold on, Red...can you give me somethin' to work with here...I told ya, I'm bored...give me some inspiration, man...I had a couple of drinks and I've done throwed up on myself...and nobody laughed, Red...there was a lot of quiet...not like the old days, man,everybody would've been laughin' their ass off at that.."

I'm pretty new here, and while I love Fark, I just now realized that the majority of the posters are trite mouth-breathers who have to chant to themselves, "Everythings fiiiine... I'm smarter than everybody else... it's ok... I'm very very smart... I really am..." RobW, you should weep for your own smug, pasty-faced pretention.

So you've seen through the Elvis fans and you see them for what they are (white trash)? Their obsessions are so pointless compared to your hollow cynicism, right? Please. I meet feebs like you on the internet every day, and you're a joke.

"Elvis is dead! Get over it!" Well, so is Shakespeare and Joey Ramone. Do you even have a point when you parrot this?

Elvis is everywhere.
