The Franch, devil tail lights, and J-Tim cross-stitch.

C'mon Franchy

Thanks to The Commercial Appeal for covering this tragically underreported story about a pair of neighbors who are always feuding about something. The latest dustup between Harbor Town resident Kenneth Franch, the inventor of Franch's Tangy Orange Salad Dressing, and librarian Binford Scuttlebutt occurred shortly after the first of the year when the two men disagreed over when to take down holiday decorations.  The typo in the headline is confusing since the Scuttlebutts are actually from Denver and of Flemish extraction.

Beelzebus

Did you know that simply riding the bus to school can turn your children into gay, flesh-eating minions of the devil? WMC news ever-so-responsibly reports that at least one parent has become concerned that the brake lights on school buses may be sending a secret Satanic message in the form of flashing pentagrams. Some say if you play the WMC report backwards you can hear the sickening voice of Satan, which isn't nearly as bad as playing it forward and hearing grownups freak out about a damn tail light.

#Wigsnatch Revisited

In November, Fly on the Wall documented a dustup between Justin Timberlake and a Twitter critic who accused J-Tim of being a "bandwagon" Memphis Grizzlies fan. Timberlake's Twitter response — "Uh ... I'm from Memphis and I'm an owner. #WigSnatch" — has been transformed into a lovely piece of cross stitch work by Memphis artist Carly Crawford.
