    The supposed idea is that the supply is saturated: There are so many Elvis impersonators that there is no room for additional impersonators, and therefore entirely competent impersonators find their talents unrewarded. What is actually portrayed, however, is not a supply glut but its opposite: There is so much demand for Elvis impersonators that even a bear is moved to offer its services. Note that this is a classic indicator of a bubble, so the likely outcome is much the same.

    Or maybe the market is so over-saturated that everyone who could possibly be an Elvis Impersonator is, so the bears are stepping in? lol

    When a solution becomes saturated, no more (whatever) can be dissolved, and what’s left over sediments out.

    So… there are so many Elvis impersonators in Vegas that Vegas is saturated… you go looking for anything in a talent agency, and they show you Elvii.

    I’m an Elvis impersonator. I shoot my TV, eat 12 banana and peanut butter sandwiches for breakfast, and get my drugs from Dr. Nick …

    “Hello, ever’Bahdy!”

    “Hi, Dr. Nick!” (audience response.)

    Oh let me be (Oh let ‘em be)…
    Your… teddy bear.

    (Not that Bill invented it, but “Elvii” would be the the Latin plural of “Elvius.” If “Elvis” were a Latin noun, its plural (as a third declension i-stem noun) ought to be Elvēs. )

    Is that a Methodist Pope?

    It’s a bear. Dressed like Elvis! That’s all it needs.

    @ fj: And if we were speaking Esperanto, the plural of Elvis would be Elvisj.

    A bear? I thought he weren’t nothin’ but a hound dog. Still, I don’t feel I’ve quite got the joke.
