ELVIS LIVES says the graffiti. You've seen it on tee-shirts, in headlines in the popular press, and on dozens of other items of an ephemeral nature. While the average reader of this particular item of graffiti probably notices that ELVIS and LIVES use the same letters, he or she probably muses over it for not more than a second or two, thinking how appropriate/cute/sad, before dismissing the matter. The serious logologist, however, gives the matter more attention.
