Elvis Impressly

Was The Prisoner In The (Hound) Dock?

A US judge had a suspicious mind when an Elvis impersonator showed up for court apparently drunk and sporting sunglasses and a rhinestone-studded shirt with a scarf draped around his neck. The judge had the faux-Elvis, 64, tested and then sentenced him to three days in jail for contempt of court when it was determined that the man's blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit in Kentucky.

FOOTNOTE: He’s a rhinestone choirboy.

Bwahaha! I love a good pun, I do. So what *is* the legal limit in Kentucky?

If I remember my last courses at the Academy, most states go with a BAC of .08 Poor Mr Presley-wanna-be would have been tough out of luck just about anywhere his drunk ass wanted to travel. Kentucky being the Horse Capitol of the US, maybe he should have bought one. Or rented one. Then about the worst they could charge him with would have been animal cruelty.

David thank you so much for sending that story to me! My husband and I loved it!!! He even put a bar of soap in the glove box just in case now. You guys were lucky to not have been killed. Great story and thanks for sharing it with me. :o)

Bradley beat me to the punch this time - there HAD to be a Jailhouse Rock joke!

As a Kentuckian, I can say that sounds rather normal.

I'm surprised he press-lied charges.

Elvis called! He said his ghost is tired and he's leaving the universe!

'Elvis as left the building... in a right mess the drunken sop.'

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee. Elvis has left the building, oh no he's back, wait, no, he has definitely left, no he's back, no he's gone again...

And I did an old weekend wandering post as I was seeking inspiration. Will you be doing some more soon?
I hope so, they're always good for a bit of inspiration.

Love your play on words David! :)

Brian in Oxford said...

Wasn't Elvis more of a "prescription drugs" kind of guy, rather than a lush?

Daryl E said...

I bet he was 'all shook up' but said he'd not be 'crying in the chapel'

My fighter/bomber friend and his wife just had a most lovely encounter with Elvis in Las Vegas on their 45th anniversary. I invite you to come over and join in our celebration - I don't think you will be disappointed.
