Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

The Leader Of The Free World And Richard Nixon

“AH NOTICED YOU NOTICIN’ MAH FINE POSSESSIONS. AH HAVE MANY.”

“Those are some cufflinks, Elvis.”

“THEY ARE TIGERS MADE FROM GOLD, WITH EYES OF DIAMONDS. ALSO–”

“–THERE IS A SECRET COMPARTMENT FOR EMERGENCY PILLS.”

“Ah. That’s some American ingenuity right there.”

“YOU TAKE THEM PILLS, NIX. THASS ELVIS’ GIFT TO YOU.”

“What are they?”

“AH DO NOT RECALL. LET’S TAKE ‘EM, AN’ FIND OUT.”

“I’m, uh, going to pass. Thank you, Elvis, but I’m all right.”

“YOU’D BE A LOT MORE RIGHT WITH ONE O’ THESE IN YOU, BUT AH WILL RESPECT YOUR WISHES. MORE FOR TH’ KING.”

“Why the medication? Are you ill, Elvis?”

“DR. NICK SAYS AH GOT THE WORST CASE OF HEEBIE-JEEBIES HE’S EVER SEEN.”

“Oh, terrible news. Just terrible. I’ll have Ehrlichman pray for you.”

“YOU EVER BEEN TO PARIS, NIX?”

“Paris, France?”

“THEY AIN’T BUILT TH’ ONE IN LAS VEGAS YET, SO YEAH.”

“I have. Several times.”

“TELL ME ABOUT PARIS, MAN. AH AIN’T NEVER BEEN. TELL ME ‘BOUT THAT CITY OF LIGHTS.”

“Paris is the capital city of France. Old. Very old, but with modern features.”

“UH-HUH.”

“The inhabitants, known as Parisians, are renowned for their culture and food. Some truly superb restaurants. My wife, Pat, had the beef bourguignon at one. She, uh, enjoyed her meal very much. Still talks about it to this day. And, of course, there’s the Eiffel Tower.”

“HOT DAMN, YOU GOT A WAY WITH WORDS, NIX!

“That’s kind of you Elvis.”

“YOU PAINTED A WORD PICTURE, MAN. IT WAS LIKE AH WAS THERE.”

“Oh, stop.”

“YOU SHOULDA BEEN A POET, MAN.”


P.S. Okay, Enthusiasts: what’s the best part of the picture? It’s something you’ve done before, and not the general “you;” if you are reading this particular blog, then YOU have done this before.

Got it?

See it?

Elvis was so fucked up that he had to empty out all of his pockets to find the one thing he wanted. You’ve done it. You know you’ve done it.
