Fly on the Wall 1424 

Sign painters, Mark Lutrell facepalm, and Elvis

A Summer Avenue landmark just leveled up. Of course it was redundant for them to spell things out so literally, but the good folks at Nice Auto Sales need a sign painter. Classic.

You + Meme

Awesome as it is, this photograph is an unfair representation of what happened last Friday when Governor Bill Haslam announced ServiceMaster's move to downtown Memphis. We're not sure what Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell is doing here, but it's not the mortified facepalm it appears to be. Nevertheless, some smartypants meme-maker will want to play with this picture, so we're leaving it right here (and at memphisflyer.com).

Neverending Elvis,/b>

Let's put this whole Nashville vs. Memphis thing to bed, shall we? Sure, Nashville has little kitschy statues of Elvis everywhere. But Memphis has an Elvis Walgreens. Last week, the King was promoting Red Nose Day in cosmetics.
