Totally Down

Does this ever happen to you? You're on the internet reading about how Memphis and Nashville were trying to create saner marijuana laws, but then the state Attorney General stepped in and said, "Oh no you don't," and then you catch a glimpse of the the West Tennessee Drug Task Force logo and realize sometimes initials mean more than one thing?

Memphis makes a lot of national lists. Usually it's for things like being fat and/or homicidal, but this time it's because we're funny. Memphis was ranked as the fourth funniest city in America, according to a new "humor index" created by, an online app for streaming standup comedy. The Humor Index considers things like the number of comedy clubs, improv troupes, and snarky alt-weekly news columns a city has. Well, the first two anyway.
