Horry County, TX – David Allen Credille, 32 and an Elvis impersonator “by trade,” was arrested on Wednesday following a Sunday night call to police.* A number of people, including Credille, were at a backyard birthday party playing the board game Taboo when the suspect reportedly got a little physical over a disagreement about the rules.
I’ll spare you the requisite “Jailhouse Rock” joke because I’m lazy.
Credille has all the credentials of a winner.* After all, he’s a 32-year-old Elvis impersonator who takes playing Taboo at parties very seriously.* I’m just surprised there was no mention of larping in the article.
He also seems to be a real stickler for rules, and a violent bastard when he feels they aren’t being followed.* When I first read this story, I immediately figured that Taboo involved rolling dice, picking an act deemed unnatural by society, and performing it on the adjacent player.* Boy, was I wrong.* It’s far gayer than that; something about trying to have your teammate guess a word without your using any of the terms listed on a card.
In any case, Credille and the victim, a coworker of his, couldn’t come to terms with how the game was intended to be played, so he allegedly punched him in the face, bloodying his nose.* When the guy tried to get back up, Credille reportedly punched him a couple more times, and then left the party with, and get this, two Blues Brothers impersonators.* Doesn’t that amount to being impersonators of impersonators or something?* I’m confused.…
