Hunka Hunka Burnin' Nixon

"Drunk History," the popular Funny or Die feature, comes to Comedy Central this week (there's even a piece in NYT tomorrow), with one segment, inevitably starring Jack Black, recreating, sort of, that famous day when Elvis met Nixon (and got a narc badge).

When I visited the Nixon Library out in California to research my book about 18 years ago, I was amazed at how many items for sale in the gift shop there carried the photo of the two men shaking hands--on t-shirts, coffee mugs, dinner plates, refrigerator magnets (I still have one).  Links to real-life meeting.  P.S. There's also a very funny Hollywood flick on the meeting.
