Further, ELVIS PRESLEY will also spell: "Less Vile Prey", "Silly Vespere", "Peerless Vily", and "Riply's Sleeve" (Believe It or Not!)

Moreover, "Christmas" has the same number of letters as "Graceland". And the three letters shared in common, spell both "arc" and "car".

Lastly - and this is an Internet Exclusive - JESUS and ELVIS were never both seen in the same place at the same time.
