Argumentum ad Populum

Because 50 million Elvis fans might be wrong.

A million people can’t be wrong! Except, of course, they can.
You can’t prove something’s good ‘cause every wide-eyed fool’s a fan.
If that was so, then cigarettes
And squashy seats in jumbo jets
And racking up large gambling debts
And fighting in Sudan

And ugly outdoor settings made from old-growth forest wood
And weasel-worded documents that can’t be understood
And glossy gossip magazines
And cutesy angel figurines
And leggings made to look like jeans
And tofu would be good.
