Thanks? - Verbatim - Golden Opportunity - Things Named Elvis

Thanks?
According to a food writer for British morning newspaper, The Independent, Memphis is a place where, even in a temperate May, the heat is unbearable, but the fried chicken is world class, and the people have enormous butts. From the report: 'The first thing that became obvious is that they aren't lying with that name – the whole world and his mother was waiting outside. It was the largest congregation of lard-arses I have ever seen. I took both to be promising signs."

Verbatim
Memphis rapper Juicy J responds to an interviewer's concerns that he may be partying too hard: "I'll never go too far. ... The only thing I'll overdose on is money."

So, do you snort that or smoke it?

Golden Opportunity
What would you do if the Coen brothers offered you a dream role? Justin Timberlake, currently appearing in Inside Llewyn Davis, recommends adult diapers. From Grantland's "Cannes Diary": "I had this moment where I was like, 'I'm going to work with the Coen brothers. I'm going to be in a Coen brothers movie and I'm going to sing in a Coen brothers movie.' How can you get as many things you want to do individually in the same movie? That would be impossible in any other area. So, I peed in my pants."

Things Named Elvis
From British newspaper The Daily Mail: "By the time Elvis arrived he was in kidney failure. Dr. Foster immediately put him on dialysis to flush out the toxins that had built up in his blood." No, not an alternative account of Elvis' last night on Earth, but the story of Elvis, a sickly kitten with "sleek black hair," who was probably questioning his good fortune when the medical team that saved his life dressed him like this for a party.
