Two things I recall about Elvis' sense of humour. Charlie Hodge wrote in his book that one day the fans where waiting for Elvis to come out of his Beverly Hills home. When he appeared he went up to one of the Greek statues of a woman and started singing the Tom Jones hit "Delilah" to it. Another thing Charlie mentioned was that if you ever said to Elvis "Nice day" or "It's turned out nice" he'd say "Thank you." Great sense of humour !!

I have a book entitled Elvis the Man and his Music and there's a section called Elvis said, here are two quotes taken from it:-

Talking about the Telethon in Las Vegas, being held over Labor Day weekend, he was reminded of a story about Jerry Lewis, the Telethon host:

When I first got out of the army in 1960, I bought a Rolls Royce. I was driving in Beverley Hills one day and Jerry Lewis pulled up beside me. He looked over at me (Elvis turned his head slowly to the side to show the expression that had been on Jerry's face) I did the same thing. (Elvis turned his head again and repeated the expression) He called my manager the same day and said, "Tell Elvis not to drive a Rolls Royce without a tie on".

Elvis' reply - I swear to God! Well, I will give you a couple of guesses to the message I sent back!

(Dinner Show, Labor Day, 2-9-74)


To Bill Porter, his sound engineer: This microphone don't sound as good as the one I had last night. I'm quittin! It's not your fault, Bill, you're a nice guy - just jump off the balcony! Elvis puts two microphones to his ears as in That's the Way It Is and said hello, hello later, realising the band couldn't hear him properly he told them: It'd be a lot better if you guys could hear me back there. It's not your fault, it's the microphone. You can't do the whole show by instinct alone, you've got to know what song I'm gonna sing. I may sing Walt Disney's "talk to the animals"! Then referring again to the microphones, he changed the words of Suspicious Minds to: let's don't let a good sound die, we had it for 3 and a half weeks, oh God, what happened to it?

Sure Kimmi, btw I'm Maria :) Two quotes about his rings:-

Showing us his rings, just before the end of the show: See this ring (a huge one on his left hand) I wore this thing in that Aloha Special from Hawaii. A lot of people thought it was one solid big diamond. No, its a one and a half carat diamond, and there are some 16 carat diamonds all round it. It's the biggest diamond I've ever seen. It was my Xmas gift to myself! I just thought I deserved it! This one I have here (on his right hand) I had this designed for the stage. It has oval-shaped, pear-shaped diamonds. This here (again on his right hand) a Japanese lady gave me. Are you here, dear? Stand up. Put that spotlight on her, she came from Japan. Tonight, between shows she gave me this ring. Honey, what is the stone in the middle? A blue star sapphire with diamonds. Thank you, thank you.

(Midnight Show, 1-9-74)


Before singing Can't Help Falling in Love", to end the show, and the Summer Season, Elvis spoke about his rings again and concluded: The reason I'm telling you this is, you helped pay for 'em!

Elvis Had A Wonderful Sense Of Humor And A Laugh Which Could Light Up A Room. I Love It When He Would Make Jokes During A Song Such As When He Starts Laughing During "are You Lonsome Tonight" In 1969.

"do You Gaze At Your Bald Head And Wish You Had Hair"

LOL - Could listen to these stories for hours.
Another example is the "Ode To A Robin" on "Cut It And I Bleed".
And not to mention about the changed lyrics. ("You can burn my wife, steal my car...")

He had a great sense of humor but I find more amusing the things he did with no intention of being funny like the story of his visit to Nixon, shooting a tv set, stopping a car for going over the speed limit and many more.

Those unconscious actions of Elvis are the things that start me giggling too Donut, especially rummaging through President Nixon's desk drawer to find things for the wives....so naive and natural in some ways!:lmfao::lmfao::lmfao:

Elvis' sense of humor was fabulous! That is another thing that made him so special and unique. He looked so cool and manly yet he had this innocence about him that made him seem so vulnerable.
I love it when he sings "Heart of Rome" and instead of singing "I will make a wish in every fountain" , he sings "I will take a pi*s in every fountain"! You got to love him!(y)
