Elvis on Mars


On October 1st, 1989, the Russian Phobos Space Probe detected a statue of Elvis Presley standing on the surface of Mars. Curiously enough, the only known publication courageous enough to report this breathtaking sighting was England's Sunday Sport.


And the story would have just died, then and there, had not globe makers extraordinaire Greaves & Thomas come to the rescue. Their exact motive: "to celebrate both Elvis as well as the Sunday Sport's unique perspective on journalism." The result... the Elvis Presley Mars Globe. An emblem of all that is right and true in this world. (We love you G&T!!!)

The white base obviously represents Elvis' White Vegas years.

I wouldn't have believed it, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Otherwise, this could have been a hoax created by the Presleytarians. (Oh yes, such an Elvis based religion exists.) Wow, odd world...

So Allison? What do you do for a living? Not that I'm flirting or anything with someone I don't know, over Robyn's post no less... (but I am)... I imagine you to be tall with long blonde hair... wait? What was this post about...?
