  • True story:

    I was walking in Memphis when I spotted a bumper sticker that said "Elvis is dead - Give it up." The tires on the car had been slashed.

    Coincidence? I think not.

      True story. It was the day we moved into our house in Fla. First thing we brought in and hooked up was the TV. While my mom and I were carrying a couch into the living room, they broke with the news. My mom, who was a HUGE Elvis fan, dropped her end if the couch which landed right on her foot. She jsut sat down on the floor, balling her eyes out. Dad and I didnt know if it was from the pain in her foot or Elvis. Long story short, she broke 4 bones in her foot.

      • I was in school. I came home and saw that my mom was upset. I asked my dad what was up. He rolled his eyes and said Elvis had died.
