I wonder if Frank Carson ever got to meet Elvis up there?

By Eddie McIlwaine

What did Frank Carson say to the Pope when his holiness asked him if he had ever met the late Elvis Presley? Unfortunately, the punchline of the story I was telling in last week's Log was somehow left out.

So here in response to the dozen or so queries I have received is the Frank reply again.

Quick as a flash comedian Carson told Pope Benedict: "Not yet".

It's a cracker, especially the way Frank told it. The 40th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death is about to be commemorated and his reputation as the king of pop music is still intact.

My old friend Frank passed away in 2012.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have met up in the heavenly place.

I know that I enjoyed the mighty talents of both these gentlemen when they were down here.
