National Association of Amateur Elvis Impersonators
Every Elvis impersonator seems to have a gimmick. In fact, the Webmaster of this site claims he's the nude impersonator when really he wears sporty, gold underwear. However, he does have an impressive hairdo. Read about other popular impersonators, or buy your very own Nude Elvis postcards. Don't forget to take a look at the Elvis artwork section, which features portraits of the King wearing a space uniform, sporting a severed head and eating at the Waffle Hut.

The Cow Liberation Army Faction

The site has stories about their successful missions freeing cattle as well as inspirational letters from fanatics.

Iron Chef
Iron Chef combines the competitive spirit of pro wrestling, the showmanship of Liberace and the skills of Julia Child. It's a Japanese cooking show where world-renowned chefs compete to see who can make the best four dishes from one selected ingredient in one hour. According to an article on the site, "The host of Iron Chef is a strange, dramatic man in an appalling tuxedo jacket. The show opens with him taking a huge bite out of a bell pepper and staring at the camera with a look that says, 'I'm probably crazy. Why not watch my program anyway?'" Some of the foodstuffs used in the Iron Chef battles include black pig, eel, lettuce and scorpion fish.
