Thank You, Thank You Very Much!

In his classic song, "All Shook Up," Elvis Presley sang about itching like a man on a fuzzy tree. Now, Elvis is really “branching out.” His kingly image has been spotted in an elm tree!
At least that's the claim of Brit John Rowley, who was driving in Herefordshire, England, and saw the tree that he thought looked remarkably like Presley in his young pre-Army stint, not his puffy Las Vegas incarnation of the 1970s. “I was just driving along one day and it stuck out like a sore thumb," Rowley said. “I’m not much of an Elvis fan, but I just noticed that unique quiff straight away and said, ‘That tree looks like Elvis.'" Elvis trees, like beauty, are in the eye of the beholder. While Rowley thinks the Elvis elm is a "treemendous likeness," it may be a matter of perception than a real depiction of Presley. What do you think? I see the profile, but really it could be Abraham Lincoln just as easily as Elvis, right?
