Fantastic news, incredibly wealthy/incredibly morbid Elvis fans: You can now be buried next to the ephemeral remnants of Elvis’ ghost. On June 23, celebrity swag shillers Julien’s Auctions will sell the Forest Hill Cemetery crypt in which Elvis and Elvis’ mom (?!) were buried for two months, back in 1977. (The bodies were moved to Graceland once Elvis’ dad got permission from the state of Tennessee.) You’re not allowed to move the crypt itself, but yes, you are allowed to bury yourself there in an Elvis-inspired coffin and jumpsuit. Provided you can afford it, of course. Bidding starts at $100,000. If you don’t have that kind of cash, you can still bid on Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” video robe (starting at $7,500) or the considerably less impressive ceramic parrots formerly owned by Meat Loaf ($150).
