The Most Ridiculous Item of the Week – 9.28.07

Puddle of Mudd lead singer Wesley Scantlin has been banned from Graceland after a ridiculous stunt during a recent tour of the estate. The band was touring Elvis Presley’s legendary home in Memphis this past Monday, and Scantlin, being something of douche, stripped down to his boxer shorts and jumped into the pool, much to the shock and disbelief of fellow visitors and staff.

Moments after jumping into the pool, Graceland security guards took Scantlin into custody and ejected him and the rest of the band from the property, where they were told never to come back.

Asked why he did it, Scantlin told reporters, “I just wanted to go for a swim.” Interesting. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that the band’s coming out with new album in a few weeks and wanted to get their heat back after all but dropping off the face of the earth for the past few years. I wonder if Puddle of Mudd plans on touring the Grand Canyon any time soon…
