    Your guy, Elvis may have a Burning Love but I think he has a cold heart made of cold metal. :) I like your takes, it was fun, huh?

    So THAT’S what happened to Elvis…he turned into a bronze sculpture.

    I’d forgotten about his love for pb&b sandwiches.

    Great threesome! I like #1 the best.
