$3 Million Bounty For Elvis
Seen Elvis lately? If you have you might be eligible for a $3 million reward. Filmmaker Adam Muskiewicz "is offering $3 million to anyone who can provide legitimate proof that The King didn't die." It's a publicity stunt for a movie about Elvis he's releasing next year. For details check out his website: elviswanted.com. I believe that LaMa has been lobbying for quite some time to add an Elvis Sighting Report Page, interfaced with a Google earth map, to the Museum of Hoaxes. Maybe it's time to do it. We'll track him down and win that $3 million!!!

David Copperfield Finds Fountain of Youth
David Copperfield claims to have found a spring on his private resort in the Bahamas that brings dead leaves, bugs, and insects back to life. He thinks it can also vanish away wrinkles. I think it sounds like he's cooking up a scheme to vanish away people's money.

Woman Sues Weather Forecasters
The weather forecast said it was going to be sunny. Instead it rained during Alyona Gabitova's camping trip. That's as good a reason as any to sue.

SlimCam Helps You Shed Weight
imageThe new HP Photosmart R727 digital camera has a "slimcam" setting that allows people to pretend to be skinnier than they really are: "The 'slimcam setting' on the gadget uses high-tech digital trickery to shave a few inches off its subject. Marketed at women, the feature squeezes the picture in the middle, so the main object in focus looks thinner - but its surroundings are left unchanged." Yet another excuse not to diet (as if any more were needed).

That gal in the slim-cam photos looks the same size in both pics- there just a bit more background in the photo on the right. She still needs to diet!!!

It's not like she was fat in the first place. Or is she? I don't know...she doesn't look fat to me. She's just not a size zero, that's all.

To me, she looks normal on the left. On the right, not slimmer, but just oddly squished.

Yes, she looks nice to me on the original picture. In the other one, she looks sort of. . .skewed. I think it's one of those tricks that only works in very exact circumstances, otherwise you end up with a messed-up looking photo.

Actually, this is a hoax. The camera is really set to enlarge the person slightly. They have just reversed the pictures. You really have to watch these people, Alex. Good thing I'm here to help.

Excellent! Another reason to detest David Copperfield...

What kind of insane world is it in which people declare that "God is dead" and "Elvis is alive"?

One where people don't believe in God anymore.

But they believe in Elvis!

Ah, Elvis conspiracies. One of my favourite conspiracy topics. I must admit I read these from time to time, mainly because I find them entertaining if nothing else.

Well I could just sit around playing Elvis all day long.
As long as I'm playin' my Elvis, ain't gonna do nobody no harm.
And who knows, maybe He'll come up with a song
To make people want to stop all their fussing and fighting
Long enough to sing along.

I believe in Elvis.
Oh, I believe the King.
And I believe in Elvis.
Oh, I, I believe the King.

With apologies to Mac Davis.
