Fly on the Wall 1399 

"Topless bar," antigay Marco Rubio, and #futurepoop

Topless Bar

Have you heard about the topless bar in Harbor Town? Your PeskyFly loves nothing more than to share photographs of unusual holiday decorations, like this pair of scantily clad mannequin legs underneath a Mardi Gras bead-strewn tree. The festive legs first appeared during a Saturday night party, or so we're told, and were used as a convenient spot to park adult beverages.

Neverending Marco

Republican presidential contender Marco Rubio took a stand for states' rights to discriminate last week and invoked Elvis' name in one of the more bizarre antigay analogies.

"If you want to change the definition of marriage, then you need to go to state legislatures and get them to change it," said Rubio, an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage. "Because states have always defined marriage. And that's why some people get married in Las Vegas by an Elvis impersonator. ... Every state has different marriage laws."

We're pretty sure nobody is currently denying couples the right to be Elvis-married.

#Futurepoop

From hotel chains to supermarkets, Memphis is a city of important firsts. The Quick Fuel station at 4589 Old Lamar celebrated a grand-reopening last week, giving away free barbecue sandwiches, brats, and soda pop in Quick Fuel koozies. The new-and-improved gas stop is being described as America's first fully automated convenience store with a robotic self-cleaning bathroom that locks and cleans itself from top to bottom after every use.


Speaking of Marco Rubio, Elvis Presley
