This is too bizarre!

Perhaps this should be a 'Caption this photo' contest.

Some thoughts:

Maybe thay have a point: They need to be brought up 20th century modernity before we lay the 21st century on them.

Could this be be a counter-'Death to the Infidel' demonstration?

I think this is pro-American. Not sure though. Doesn't seem anti-American. Hmmm. I dunno.

The 'Elvis Lives!' Club Iraq Chapter (ELIC) is now officially chartered in Iraq.

I'm having fun with it. It illustrates the contrast of cultures well.

It's in the vein of 'When worlds collide' humor and/or discussion,

Roy...

Regardless of the source, I can appreciate the picture.

A few years ago, Dock and I were window shopping in Colmar, France. We came across a window display of giant belt buclkes. Some of them were Elvis in nature. But one really sent me into a fit of laughter...a Confederate Flag belt buckle! I do not know why that struck me as so strange...but it did.

Google search the title of this thread and locate a decent Powerman5000 song for download purposes.
