The Costa del Sol: Elvis Has Left The Cantina

Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 21 July 2006

"Hey, baby, what's your name?" he groans, and they automatically reply: Kelly, Alise, Leanne. Elvis is, of course, an impersonator, but a very fine one; if he weren't black, Portuguese and as skinny as a rake in his baggy white jumpsuit, he could almost pass for the real thing.

Total word count of piece: 1954
