2. A beardElvii is a plural for Elvis impersonators (this, however, is not grammatically correct, as the name "Elvis" derives from Old English. Even if it somehow were a third-declension Latin noun, the plural form would be Elves). This term was popularized by a Saturday Night Live sketch where Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi respectively impersonated the younger and older versions of Elvis. In Memphis, Tennessee, the term Elvira (plural, Elviras) has been used to refer to female Elvis impersonators. There is a lot of speculation as to how many Elvis impersonators are out there, with experts reckoning that the number of Elvis Presley impersonators has reached an all-time record high. "There are now at least 85,000 Elvis?s around the world, compared to only 170 in 1977 when Elvis died. At this rate of growth, experts predict that by 2019 Elvis impersonators will make up a third of the world population." - The Naked Scientists 3rd December, 2000.

9. FridayWednesday, whose middle name is Friday, was originally - as her name suggests - a quiet, somewhat pathetic child, full of woe. In the TV show she was a sweet-natured, innocent, happy child, largely concerned with her pet spiders. A favorite toy was her Marie Antoinette doll, which she had guillotined, and which she often showed to visitors. The movies gave Wednesday a much more serious and mature personality with a deadpan wit, and a morbid fascination with trying to physically harm or possibly murder her brother (she was seen strapping him into an electric chair, for example, and preparing to pull the switch); she is apparently often successful, but Pugsley never dies. Like most members of the family he seems to live in a semi-immortal state.

10. To seek-out the wounded
