Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

My casual skimming on an article about the auctioning off Marilyn Monroe’s and Elvis Presley’s more obscure personal effects was stopped cold by this detail:

Medical paraphernalia from Elvis Presley’s doctor is also listed in the Julien’s Auctions catalogue, including a nasal douche and his leather bag.

A nasal douche? Seriously? Was the King snorting such a huge quantity of foreign substances toward the end, that an ordinary tissue didn’t suffice in clearing out the sinus passages?

Suddenly, the fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches don’t seem nearly as bizarre.
