Dear 100 Hour Board,
Where did the expression "Elvis has left the building" originate? Were people supposed to stick around after one of his concerts until he left or something?
- Hound dog

A: Dear Hound Dog,
It's not that they were supposed to, it's that they did. Concert organizers could not get people to leave until they told them that he had- people would stay for hours just in case he came back and did an encore.
