Late Night: Kung Fu Ricin Fighting? The Rise of the Attack Elvi?

This Elvis stuff is off the hook. Last week it was reported that Paul Kevin Curtisan Elvis impersonator, was suspected as the perp behind the mailed ricin attacks against POTUS, Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker, and a local judge . (In all fairness, besides Elvis Curtis also does Jerry Lee Lewis, Kid Rock, Prince, and Freddy Fender.) While he was in jail being investigated, in a bizarre act not motivated by sequined spangled solidarity:

A 53-year-old career Elvis impersonator from Iowa engaged police in a 30-hour standoff on Sunday after a property dispute led to the man discharging a shotgun at officers and threatening to kill himself.

Michael Reed, known for playing the faux Elvis Pressley character “Micky King” for more than 30 years, was confronted by police on Saturday after a warrant was issued for his arrest stemming from an allegation of harassment.

This morning Ricin Elvis was released from jail after the FBI failed to find any ricin making equipment or supplies at his house (does this mean castor oil will now have to be signed for at pharmacies like Sudafed-D?), but the charges are in place. However, before The King-maqué was back in his jumpsuit

Sen. Harry Reid said there was “alleged ricin incident” at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington — just days after there was reportedly “white substance” at a base in Virginia.

Now, reports The Atlantic, the FBI is investigating

a Mississippi martial arts instructor named J. Everett Dutschke, who supposedly feuded with Curtis after the latter uploaded a certificate indicating his membership to Mensa, the high IQ organization, to his MySpace page. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reported on Monday that FBI agents had spoken to Dutschke before searching his home in connection to the ricin investigation. “I wasn’t going to be pulled into his fantasy world,” Dutschke told the paper, after admitting that he met Curtis in 2010.

What’s YOUR favorite Elvis era?

Got no Elvis stories.

Don’t know if you’re aware of this series, Lisa, or if it would be interesting to you.

Thank eCAHN, I’ll check it out. My favorite Elvis joke: A woman and her very pretty 14 yr old daughter are at an Elvis show in Vegas. The KIng walks up to the woman, a hug Elvis fan and says,”Ma’am, I couldn;t help but noticing…

And the woman gigles…
The King says,

Ma’am, your daughter is so pretty and I’d like to ask your daught something

So Elvis casts his limpid gaze gaze on the blushing girl, leans in and whispers:

Hey little lady–are you done with that potato?

That is sadly one of my favorite jokes.

I just read a new book, “Gulp,” about the digestive system. There is half a chapter about Elvis’ paralyzed colon. As we know he died “straining at stool,” but what we didn’t know is that he likely suffered from constipation his whole life. He toured with a doctor who gave him (usually) well-timed enemas. Puts things in perspective.
