"Elvis Costello nicked my act", that's the claim being made by Zeke Pocock, a Colorado gas fitter from Pease Pottage in Memphis.
He told The Spoof:
"Back in the late fifties I had hit on this fantastic idea of becoming Elvis Presley. The world was my oyster and success was guaranteed but then it all went terribly wrong.
I was hanging around London's legendary Sun Studios, about to cut me some discs, when this guy came in saying he was Elvis Presley and of course the rest is history. He nicked my act and that was it"
We asked Zeke to back up his extraordinary claim and to give us a rendition of one of the King's tunes. He gladly obliged by launching into 'Penny Lane' and quite honestly it was shit.
We made our excuses and left him there and it's our opinion that if he really was going to be Elvis, then it's lucky Elvis came and stole his act.
Col. Sanders, Presley's life-long manager, told The Spoof:
"You're entitled to a free large coke with that Family Bargain Bucket, or else a portion of wings"
