It was all of those peanut butter and banana sandwiches he ate - blocked him up better than concrete.

So Elvis's own doctor (the source of the story) overlooked this incredibly rare and symptomless condition that's impossible to treat? What a moron.

This tells you all you need to know here:

He recently released the book “The King and Dr. Nick” about his time with The King, and his theory on the death that shocked America.
Just a ploy to sell books.

Hmmm, sounds like a new round of jokes are about to surface. Elvis has left the bathroom!

Surely the author doesn't think reading about constipation is going to sell his book, or does he?

It has been widely reported that Elvis Presley died in 1977 from cardiac arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat, possibly brought on by drug dependency, obesity and a weak heart. But the music legend's longtime friend and physician, Dr. George “Nick” Nichopoulos, has put pen to paper for the first time and revealed his belief that it was chronic constipation that actually killed the King of Rock and Roll.

Yeah right...a 'friend'.

I hope the good 'Dr Nick' gets hit by a flying turd.

Who said a bad case of constipation and a heart attack had to be mutually exclusive. Didn't they find him dead in the bathroom trying to do the deed? Coincidence or correlation?
