Mongo for mayor and hair extensions

Mongo, 2015

It wouldn't be an election without a bid from Memphis' favorite space alien/candidate, Prince Mongo. A new "Mongo for Mayor" bumper sticker lists a number of things the Prince promises to accomplish if elected. When it comes to politicians, we should "hang' um."

Or "flush' um."

A third option printed so faintly it won't photograph says we should "fill potholes with politician bones," which seems practical, if a bit extreme. If elected, Mayor Mongo would also arm frogs with machine guns, apparently.

For months, Fly on the Wall has been trying to answer the great question of our age: Where do all the tumbleweaves come from? Perhaps this story will shed some more light on the matter. According to Middle Tennessee news reports, an angry woman recently attempted to hit the owner of C & K Beauty and Wig Store in Murfreesboro with her car. The attempted vehicular assault occurred after the woman tried to return a bag of hair extensions. The store's owner said she couldn't grant a refund because the bag was open, and the hair was damaged. Police say the car's license number tracked back to Memphis.
