Fly on the Wall 1350 

Hoodie ban, stolen trailer, and Elvis' pubes.

What the Fox?

A FOX-13 news story misleadingly slugged "Memphians Support, Criticize Ban On Hoodies" found reporter Greg Coy questioning Memphians about a piece of Oklahoma legislation that, if passed, would ban the public wearing of hooded sweatshirts in the Panhandle State. The segment produced exactly zero supporters, because it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that when hoodies are outlawed, only law-abiding citizens will have constitutionally protected hoodies made of guns. Duh.

News Trailer

December 28th was a dark day for Memphis, according to the lead story on the WMC-TV website, which trumped the tragic news, "Trailer Stolen in Shelby County." It's true. According to WMC, the trailer had been missing for a week already, but deputies of the Shelby County Sheriff's Office were on the lookout and armed with an understanding that the uniquely designed hand rails and ramp should make the trailer "easy to response," whatever that means. Commenters on the story provided valuable insight with questions like, "Where's the live crew?" and "Has an Amber Alert been issued yet?"

Neverending Elvis

File this one under "Ew!" As Elvis Presley's birthday week is being celebrated in Memphis, your Fly Team would be remiss if we didn't report that an Ohio man is still attempting to sell what he alleges to be a 49-year-old sample of the King's pubic hair.

"All you Elvis collectors, lookie here. I have a real pubic hair from Elvis Presley plucked by my ex-wife Billie Jean Flurt from Elvis crotch in 1965. I hate to part with it. But it can be yours for Christmas for $5,000.00. Comes with letter of authenticity signed by Colonel Parker. I guarantee its real!"
