How Elvis ruined society

I like to joke that it’s Fed Ex that ruined society

everyone was fine with 6 to 8 weeks delivery, then they had to make it all overnight

but really…… the guy who founded Fed Ex lived down the street from Elvis in his first house and used to swim in Elvis’ pool

so I think that has a part to play in Elvis’ impact on society

in the 1950s, kids would write on envelopes

Postman postman don’t be slow
be like Elvis, go man go

Elvis does his best Jackie Wilson impersonation.
