Free Elvis Sightings!

I was researching copyright laws, as is my wont, and I stumbled upon this question in the FAQ at the U.S. Copyright Office:

How do I protect my sighting of Elvis?

Could that one really be asked frequently?  I mean, really?  Or is this some kind of a joke?  For the record, the answer is no.  You can copyright your pictures of the sighting, but you cannot copyright the sighting itself.  Damn.
