Love me tender


Is this what happens when your singing career is kaput and you're divorcing (ed?) and need to feed a few mouths? You hawk the Baby Elvis doll?

"In commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of his untimely passing, Marie Osmond pays tribute to the 'King,' with a very special doll, Baby Elvis®. Having personally known Elvis when she was a young woman, Marie was greatly influenced by both Elvis and his music, and Elvis himself was particularly fond of Marie's mother, Olive Osmond."

Uh-huh.

Apparently this is the first in Marie's Little Bit Country, Little Bit Rock & Roll doll series.

"Baby Elvis® wears the iconic American Eagle Jumpsuit from Elvis's 1973 Aloha from Hawaii satellite TV concert special, which is widely regarded as the pinnacle of his superstardom."

Uh-huh.

Baby Elvis® is limited to an edition of 5,000 and sells for $149.95.

Aren't there powerful, ancient magicks protecting the trademarks on Elvis' name and likeness? How did Marie learn the password? Isn't it in an unspeakable tongue? Has she been consorting with the three-faced beast in the dungeons of Rkglk again? Silly Osmonds.
