Elvis Microphone Poop Bag Dispenser

Black Friday Starts Now

Did you get this email from ShopElvis.com on November 29? I also get promo messages from ShopGraceland.com, and between the two, they have sent me a dozen or more emails in the past month pushing Elvis products. If you look at their websites and scroll down to the end of each category, you can find things that make you say “why?”

I have been trying to come up with a Christmas / Elvis topic for the next ElvisBlog post, and as I surfed around looking for an idea, I came across my post from 2010 titled “Elvis and the Island of Misfit Gifts.” It was inspired by the animated holiday sequel “Rudolph & the Island of Misfit Toys.”

Island of Misfit Toys

The idea was that a lot of really stupid Elvis products have been introduced over the years and may have been given to some unfortunate Elvis fan as Christmas gifts. Click here to see the whole article, or check out some of the bad ones here:

Elvis for Dummies

Elvis Toilet Seat Covers

Elvis keyboard cleaner brush

Elvis & Nixon Snow Globes

Elvis Plush Doll

 

Since 2010 I have uncovered some additional dubious Elvis products.

.

Elvis Cuckoo Clock:

Elvis Presley Collectible Cuckoo Clock

See the two little doors at the top of the clock? What could be more fun than seeing a tiny Elvis pop out every hour and sing a few notes?

.

Bar Stool:

This may not be as bad an idea as I thought originally. My picture was small, so I went to the internet to see if I could find a better one. What I found is that there are at least six different designs of Elvis bar stools, so these things must be fairly popular.

.

Elvis Pot Holder:

This looked like it might be from the 50s, so I checked the two websites to see if there are any modern Elvis potholders being sold. There were not, but ShopElvis offered this…

.

Elvis Paper Towel Dispenser:

These things need a heavy base to work, and this one is wood. I think you’d knock it over every time you ripped off a sheet..

ShopGraceland also had no potholders, but they did have this…

.

Elvis Signature Shot Glass in a Small Pink Caddy Base:

Wow, I gotta have one of these. There’s quite a variety of Elvis shot glasses offered, but this is the only one with a pink Caddy base.

.

Russian Nesting Dolls:

Elvis Russian Nesting Doll Set

You can hours of fun opening up these and putting back together. Think I’ll pass.

.

Elvis Toilet Paper:

Elvis Toilet Paper

Please, no. Pleeeeease, pleeeeeeease.

.

As bad as Elvis toilet paper is, this beats it:

Elvis Dog Poop Bag Dispenser

We can thank ShopElvis for this wonderful present for the Elvis fan/dog owner on your Christmas gift list. And what a deal. It includes one FREE poop bag roll.

Elvis Dog Poop Bags

At least we can be thankful that Elvis’ image does not appear on the molded rubber dispenser case. You know, this might actually be a good Elvis collectible to purchase for future appreciation. The price goes up on rare Elvis items, and I don’t think there will be many of these sold.

Crummy Elvis Shit

Crummy Elvis Shit -- Elvis Blog

Back in 2007, I wrote an ElvisBlog post about Elvis’ 1964 movie, Live A Little, Love A Little. In the text, I used the words Elvis, crummy, and shit. They were in three different sentences in three different paragraphs.

Then in 2008, somebody Googled “Crummy Elvis Shit.” The Google algorithm went searching out in the internet for those three words, and it found my little blog article. Out of 6,330 results. ElvisBlog ranked #7 in Crummy Elvis Shit. I mentioned this strong performance in a subsequent Mini-Nuggets post. I didn’t know it at the time, but that section’s subtitle, “Crummy Elvis Shit,” would have consequences.

In 2012, I Googled it again. Wow, what a change. They now had over one million results for Crummy Elvis Shit. I wrote a post about this sizable jump, noting, “It would appear the worldwide supply of Crummy Elvis Shit had grown appreciably in four years.” I also bragged because ElvisBlog had moved into the highly coveted #1 position, probably because of that 2008 section subtitle named “Crummy Elvis Shit.”

2012 Mini-Nuggets Post

 

Well, curiosity got the best of me in March, 2014, so I Googled it again. The total results dropped a little, but were still over a million. The big change was that Google now had ElvisBlog #1 and #2 in “Crummy Elvis Shit.” Hey, we’re on a roll. Up we go. That old 2012 post (under two different URLs) had moved to the top of the list. So, of course I had to write another Mini-Nugget section to tell the news, and it too was titled “Crummy Elvis Shit.” I said to myself, “OK, Google, here’s another one for you.”

It worked. On New Year’s Eve, 2014, I Googled it again. Would you believe ElvisBlog now occupies the top three spots on their results for Crummy Elvis Shit? Did you notice that is also the title of this post? I’m not leaving anything to chance. Next time I check, I want ElvisBlog to fill up an entire first page of Google results for “Crummy Elvis Shit.”

Google Top 3 for Crummy Elvis Shit

 

Oh, by the way, Bing now has 7,350,000 results for “Crummy Elvis Shit.” And ElvisBlog has the top three spots over there, too.

What a great year.

 

Happy New Year from ElvisBlog.
