Presenting the Great Elvis Cut-Off!



No, not this kind of Cut-Off!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NOTE:  THIS POST IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.  BEAR WITH US WHILE WE MAKE A HOPEFULLY FUNNIER POST BECAUSE THIS ONE CURRENTLY SUCKS.



I am a child of the Fifties.














~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      


For a long time, I wondered why many others who grew up in the 50’s, as I did, worked in an office that was decorated like this …









 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Whereas, I always worked in an office that was decorated like this …






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Then one day, I heard of something called:

“THE GREAT ELVIS CUT-OFF!”



No! 

Not THAT kind of Cut-Off!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



I’ll explain…


THE GREAT ELVIS CUT-OFF 


is a specific date in time, unknown to the world until last year …..









~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Finally,
SUPER COMPUTER 

at the University of Edinburgh 






... cracked the mystery that had long bedeviled mathematicians, 
social scientists, and
 guys who decorate offices.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It solved at last


the

 INCREDIBLE MYSTERY
of


THE GREAT ELVIS CUT-OFF!

(Do not bother looking below; 
it's not that kind of cut-off!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



If you’re a Baby Boomer born

ON or BEFORE
 12:00 NOON 
on 
FEBRUARY 24, 1948, 

whenever you see
 this man ....







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






You will …



Always, Always
Always

think:








~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~












~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


But if you’re a Baby Boomer born 

AFTER
 12:00 NOON
 on 
FEBRUARY 24, 1948, 

whenever you see
 this man .…




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




You will …



Always, Always
Always

think:




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
























~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And when you see these guys,

 you will







Always, Always
Always


think






So naturally whenever I see this man







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will …



Always, Always
Always

think:

















 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And we never quite understood 
why these guys whom we thought so highly of would say that 

whenever they saw 

THIS MAN ...













~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


They would

Always, Always 

Always,  Always,  Always, Always 

Always, Always

think:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~










~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will


Always, Always 

Always,  Always,  Always, Always 

Always, Always

think


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And whenever I,

 being born on the far side of 

 THE GREAT ELVIS CUT-OFF

 see

  THESE OTHER GUYS









~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



I will 

Always, Always 

Always,  Always,  Always, Always 

Always, Always


think:






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~












~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



BUT YOU KNOW 
WHAT???


?????????


  ????  

?????????????????



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Although those of us born on a date well beyond

THE GREAT ELVIS CUT-OFF

may never own a




or a 
     





      





                      
or even a 



                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



We've come to kind of like

  THIS MAN NOW, 

too!







                                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~










 AND ALL!!!






                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Go Figure!









                                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And that’s 
the latest news
and 
scientific findings


 on



THE GREAT ELVIS 
CUT-OFF!

                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



NO!!!






 NOT THAT KIND OF CUT-OFF!

Oy Vey!

That's a long one (story).

And Abe Vigoda is probably wondering how his face got up there next to a bris.

alan,

It's a work in process and an experiment. Yes, it kind of sucks now, but wait until later (I hope.) Don't check it again until tomorrow. If at all!

Perry,

Mae B doesn't totally agree with me when I say you are a genius. But you are. We had to have the paramedics stop here and give me oxygen after I read this.

By the way, since when did I tell you it OK to post photos of my office? Since when have you been peeking in my windows?! Hey!

I dunno, kd.

Thanks for the compliment, but I still don't really like this. It starts pretty well, and it's always great to see George Reeves as Superman, but then I really screw up the graphics and I find the Elvis analogy somewhat simplistic.

Plus the whole thing is hard to dance to.

I'll try to work on it more later. If you're not doing anything, take another look in a few days. Probably better to be doing anything.

kdmccrite2 said...

I will look again in a few days as you suggest.

If it doesn't feel right to you, then it isn't. Trust yourself. But I like it. I think you're a hoot.

Perry Block said...

Not sure for this one, I shouldn't be given the boot.

kdmccrite2 said...

Sorry to disappoint you, fella, but I still like it. Maybe I'm just sick.

Perry Block said...

Well, if you are, I hope a few more people come down with your sickness.

You seem to be the only one in all of blogdom who likes this. Oh, that's right, you don't live in Blogdom, that's in Wisconsin. Sorry!

Maybe you could let Mr. Hoffa take a look....
