Elvis Presley - Elvis Presley's Original Tomb Could Be Yours!

Thinking about your funeral already? Or maybe you're just into something that's a little more novel that you can use as a bed? Perhaps you're just a fan of the King himself, Elvis Presley. If any of those three things apply then you'll be delighted to know that you can bid on the original tomb of the man himself! Yes, that's right, start planning how you can fool archaeologists in thousands of years' time by buying this crypt and consecrating yourself inside it. The silly fools'll dig up the piece and assume it's one of the most famous performers of all time, when instead it'll just be your decidedly average and remarkable body inside! Genius.
Yahoo reports that Darren Julien is selling the original crypt to the highest bidder as part of an auction titled 'Music Icons.' It's currently located inside the granite and marble mausoleum at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee. Presley himself isn't in there anymore; conspiracy nuts claiming he's still alive calm down though, he was merely re-buried two months later at his Graceland home, his original resting place remaining empty ever since.
Apparently the successful winner of the June 23rd 2012 auction gets the crypt, opening and closing of the vault for burial, a memorialization inscription and use of a chapel for a committal service.
