There is no RAF Luton. (Still funny though, especially the particles of Semtex in the air.)

"Ring of Fire" was originally written by Shadrach, Meshack, and Abendgoto.  Not many people know that.

It is an amazing parody account! It's like a brilliant cross between The Onion and Monty Python, and is a great follow if you're on Twitter.

Ring of Fire was a song about the day after eating Taco Bell.

It felt like
A burning ring of fire
Then came 7 Layers
And the flames went higher

So, I get that the account is a parody, but today I learned about the Kopp Etchells effect.

Actually that's a YH-32 Hornet helicopter that was powered by ramjets on the tips of the rotor, so you're seeing ramjet flames not abrasion here. The 50s were weird yo.

More like June Carter Cash and Merle Kilgore. Not Elvis. I don't think he covered it.

Elvis was in the (U.S.) military up until 1960, if that were merely a typo.

Neither of his parents were even conceived by 1906.  The older of the two was born in 1912.

As far as I can tell, he never spent time in the U.K. during his service.

Captain Elvis Presley?


... and his highest rank appears to have been Sergeant.

On top of him not having written Ring of Fire, of course.

It's a parody account that frequently snares people into thinking it is real.

Whichever colour the Special Boat Service {SAS but boats} choose to paint it, one would imagine.

I mean, first of all, whoosh, but the only time Elvis set foot in the UK was when he changed planes in Prestwick one time.
