      This is a mighty strange little thing I am tempted to inquire about the actual fuck, but I think there was a lesson to be learned somewhere in all of this I guess I was too caught up in the holiday spirit to pay attention to it Also, my knowledge of Elvis starts and ends with the references made in Lilo and Stitch, so there s that.
