Armed Forces album at
Elvis Costello's, "How To Be Dumb"
The Insulting Lyrics:
And beautiful people stampede to the doorway
Of the funniest f***er in the world
Why They're Insulting:
Elvis wrote this song as an insult to his bassist in his backing band The Attractions, Bruce Thomas, who, from what I've read, had written a book in which he dissed Elvis by calling him fat and smelly.
