The thing about live TV is, well, it's live. That's the lesson WMC news reporter Jerica Phillips learned last week as she reported on heavy rains. Priscilla Lester, an angry Frayser resident, walked into the shot complaining — and rightfully so — that this marked the fourth or fifth time the "Motherf#$%&r" had flooded. The video went viral and became so popular that WMC returned to the scene to meet Lester, a 51-year-old mother of five adult children, who was sorry about cursing on TV, out of Kool cigarettes, and in need of a hug.

Speaking of live TV, here's a shot from a Fox 13 report about Mississippi Govorner Phil Bryant asking a federal agency to "asses" damage in Desoto County. What a difference an "s" makes.
If you've ever had a black metal handle lodged in your eye, you know just how painful that can be. Thank goodness for $4 prescriptions at Kroger.
