Elvis Gets Arrested for Playing Guitar in Public

“I woulda been OK if all those girls that gathered around had stayed 6 feet apart.”



Let’s Try This Again.


In the 15-year history of ElvisBlog, I have deleted only two posts due to reader reactions.  The first was when I posted Photoshop pictures showing Osama Bin Laden in an Elvis jumpsuit, and Elvis wearing his blankets and sandals. It was stupid and horrible, and folks let me know.

The second time was just a week-and-a-half ago.  It was another in the series of Covid 19 posts using Elvis photos with humorous (hopefully) tag lines.  This one was inspired by his Memphis Mafia and their protective demeanor around Elvis.

Unfortunately, I did not think out the title or tag line very well, and it was received by some a political.  That was not my intent, so I took it down.  Here  is  the improved version of it.


How Elvis Would Handle Questions at the Virus Task Force Briefing


“I’ll take one more question… OK, let’s see. You in the very back..……… Ah, man, why’d you have to ask a question like that.… Red, go down there and remind this fella he doesn’t want to ask me any more gotcha questions .  Take Sonny with you.”

    muy bueno!!

  2. I translate “gotcha questions” as “perverse questions”, i.e. wicked, deviant, emanating from the sick brains who aim at controlling all media – thus at controlling politics – in the Western world (on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean). “Gotcha journalism” is thus “perverse journalism”.
    See the definition of “gotcha journalism” at en.wiktionary.org…

  3. LOVE IT!! You could have a second career as a comedic writer, methinks. Thanks for brightening my day with a bit of EP humour!

    • Hi Selma. Thank you for the nice words. I just posted another Covid-related Elvis photo, and I two more in the bag.

    There was nothing wrong at all with the original post, Phil. Some folks’ derangement is so severe that they won’t allow free speech nor comedy (unless, of course, it ridicules the person they don’t like). You should have stood your ground, no apologies necessary. God bless America, the land Elvis loved so much.

    • HI Diana. I appreciate what you said. Maybe I should have left the original post alone. But now it’s time to move on.


  5. Hello Phil, didn’t see anything political in your post. People are offended to easily these days! However I do like the latest one better!

    Hi Phil,
    Enjoy your posts! Didn’t see anything wrong with your April 10th post. Thanks for all your time and efforts in bringing some humor into our day!
