ElviiRose looked around her old estate in shock. It looked much the same, but she couldn't believe the people. "When are we?"

"Five years after we met."

"What happened?"

"When Elvis Presley died in 1977, there were 37 Elvis impersonators in the world. By 1993, there were 48,000, an exponential increase. Today, every third person is an Elvis impersonator."

A group of small Elvii ran past them, heading for school.

"You're loving this, aren't you?" Rose glared at the Doctor. "Of all the dodgy statistics examples to actually come true, it had to be this one."

"Thank you very much."

That's just so scary! *shudders*

I find it amusing. Why the coda that I don't have to live there.
24th Aug, 2005 22:40 (UTC)
LOL yeah!

Apart from the obvious reason, I find it scary to realise that Elvis died so long ago and yet I was already an adult. Arrrrgh!

It's never fun to get those reminders. Kind of like being able to say you saw all the Star Wars films at the cinema on a first run. Now if only I can erase the memory of the craptacularness of the prequels...

*falls over laughing* There is a bit of an overrunning by impersonators. You'd think the original would've been enough.

There can never be too many Elvis impersonators. Everyone is gettin gin on the act, even elder gods.

[Insert even more hysterical laughter here.]

I forgot about that! :D

I've always loved the explanation of exponential growth of Elvis impersonators and was quite chuffed to find a use for it.

lol, elvii. like a disease. ::snort::
25th Aug, 2005 12:45 (UTC)
Yes! But with sequins.

Bwah ha ha ha!

I was chuckling as I read, but that last line pushed me over the each. And now I'm chortling as I head off to bed, but if I dream about Elvis, you are so in trouble.

But it won't just be one Elvis... it will be many. Still, better than being chased by clowns or mimes.

Still, better than being chased by clowns or mimes.

Now, that's just being evil.

*laughs* Elvii. *laughs again* This was a great humorous piece!

It's a running joke in my family, so it seemed appropriate.
