It's Wacky Wednesday time again folks! Since people around the globe mourned the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley a couple of weeks ago, I thought I would share with you the fact that even the King of Rock and Roll's dirty laundry is still a hot ticket item.
Yeppers, there is a genuine soiled pair of Elvis' "Britches" that are expected to fetch $16,000 at an auction in England next month. Looks like that "Hound Dog" had a "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" on the stage rather than over the potty. I'm sure the King's "Blue Eyes are Crying in the Rain" right now 'cause those skivvies were obtained from the estate of his very own daddy Vernon Presley. That's just gotta be a blow to your "Confidence" and give ya that "Dirty, Dirty Feeling".
The BBC reports that by some sort of "Amazing Grace" those undies were worn by the King at a concert in 1977 under his iconic white jumpsuit so no panty lines would be seen. Obviously Elvis was "All Shook Up" from singin' such classics as "Jailhouse Rock" and "Blue Suede Shoes" and had a little bit of leakage. I'm not so sure how that "Big Hunk O' Love", weighin' 260 pounds at the time he wore these undies, would have fared if he tried to get lucky with a groupie that night after whispering in her ear, "Are You Lonesome Tonight"? The King's "Burning Love" may have either taken one look at those nasty tighty whities and walked out the door, or she was so star struck she just thought "It's Now or Never".
And ya gotta wonder if Elvis the Pelvis left a trail of skid marks with all that gyratin' he did. But, "Don't Be Cruel" folks 'cause Elvis' estate is gonna get its "Happy Ending" after all with a big ol' payday at auction!!!
