It is a dispute made in kitsch culture heaven: a mime versus an Elvis impersonator.

The standoff between the two buskers began on July 12, 2009, when Cady Vishniac, a 24-year-old human statue from Dorchester, was performing in her usual spot at the corner of Commercial and Ryder streets in Provincetown.

Raymond Sitar, a 67-year-old retired lawyer and Elvis tribute artist, wanted her sidewalk space so he could sing Elvis songs. Vishniac contends that Sitar “snuck up on me while I was working and grabbed my rear end.’’

She declined to move. Vishniac said Sitar spent the next hour standing beside her, grumbling to himself, clearing his throat, and stamping his feet.

“I found it a little disturbing to have the man throwing a very public tantrum so close to me, but chose to ignore him,’’ Vishniac said in an e-mail to the Globe. “What was difficult to ignore was that he was trying very hard to get the attention of my audience and get them to take his picture instead of mine.’’

The police got involved, and now the dispute between the mime and an Elvis impersonator has landed in federal court. ...link (http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2010/08/06/duel_performance_in_provincetown/)

Personally - I think both should be shot on sight.

Maybe not shot but a few days in the poky for their stupidity taking into consideration whether these two birds have any talent or not.
