How Elvis really died...'the latest.'

    Apparently there are new reports that the King died of complications from chronic constipation.  It's well known that he was abusing prescription drugs in his later years and on stage appeared extremely bloated.  These drugs are notorious for such side effects and they do wreak havoc with the system.
    Poor man.

      We can't go on together.. with constipatious sighs..
      And we can't build our dreams.. on bloated alibis..

        So if an old sandwich and jello
        Doesn't drop out to say hello
        Would I still see the anguish between your thighs?

              I was saving the last verse for ya.

              Okay, I'll finish it.

              ......

              Okay I can't do it. It'd be funny, but I guess it really devolves into some seriously inappropriate humor.

                Yeah that's all quite funny enough on its own. I cracked up reading that list. Almost makes me believe in fate, or precognition.

                Too funny.

    This is what everyone know.. Nothing new about this.. He died an unnatural death... no one knows the reason why?

    Hello lorlie! Well...the good folks in Memphis say that the King died on the thrown. No disrespect to him... _hit just happens! But...what you state about the drugs...and and the fact that he was out of shape and had played a basketball game earlier that night...and the physical strain of the...you know...moment...collaborated together...as I heard it from more than one local...who had heard it from a friend of a friend...who happened to be a coroner. Anyways...that's how I heard it told in Memphis.

    That being said...as a real bad way to go...Elvis was a legendary performer...that other performers marveled at (still do)...and that still out sells many famous current artists! I know I surely enjoy much of his music.

    passed through Memphis a few years ago and of course had to make a stop to see Graceland - not all the tourist stuff - just took a pic in front of the gates to graceland on a motorbike - security guards coming along to escort us out of the way are in the pic too!  stopped by (forget the name of the place) where he did his early recordings.  the area was getting really busy with elvis fans because it was within a few days of the anniversary of his death.

      Well, yes and no, he had a heart attack and was pronounced dead, but when he was taken to the morgue a vampire attendant noticed he had a pulse and turned him!

      But since his system was so polluted with drugs the turn didn't work out too well, he seems to prefer cats blood over human blood!

      It also explains all the sightings...

    lorie6 hi! I think Elvis's death has been well reported over the years, his voice touched many follower's and melted hearts everywhere. It's a shame he died prematurely, he was loved and now missed by many. I believe his daughter and his astate will keep his music alive for a long time to come. Thank you for posting this forum... I'm one who enjoyed his music smile
