TCB (in a flash)

Well, It's thirty years and Elvis is still dead.

The first time I was in Memphis for Death Week, I asked everyone I met if they had an Elvis story. I heard some good ones, but by far the best was from a bartender at the P and H Cafe.

He told me he had a friend that worked at the morgue in Memphis. He said when they brought in the bodies they all got tagged as usual, with the ceremonious big toe label containing their name, time and cause of death, and whatever information those tags usually carry.

All except one body, whose tag simply read...
