12a    Chauncey and Dale Zindel stayed in the same room at the Luxor every time they played Vegas. As Elvis impersonators they were quite good, but the fact that there were two of them, identical twins, gyrating pelvically as they waded through the Elvis song book made them, absolutely, the best in the business.
