When I first started using Facebook, I wanted to enjoy the full experience, such as it was, and so I tried "liking" things. All the kids were doing it, after all, and where could the harm be? Just to be on the safe side, though, I generally avoided commercial products and mainly limited my likings to movies, TV shows, musical acts, and the occasional white supremacist book club (only one of those is a joke!). I ran into a small hiccup, however, when I chose to express my liking for Elvis.
Now, when I say "Elvis," I of course mean the Elvis who is still making music--and, frankly, the only Elvis of any true musical significance, i.e., Elvis Costello. Facebook, however, assumed I meant this other guy. Yes, I know, hard to believe, but there was another famous musical Elvis--I think his last name was "Stojko" or something. So now I get these updates on my news feed informing me that on this date in Elvis history Mr. Stojko joined the army and on that date he ate a pancake, etc.
Well, anyway, today's Elvisania was a trivia question: What was the first movie in which Elvis made his film debut? As opposed to what? His third film debut? Rest assured: No Elvis Costello fan site would make such a stupid mistake! Mainly because Elvis Costello hasn't done any films, but that's beside the point.
