Fly on the Wall 

The Recipe

From The Healthy Memphis Blog: "If Santa left a pet hamster under your Christmas tree, you might want to know ... pet rodents, including hamsters, are an underappreciated source of salmonella infections in humans." The HMB failed to report that hamsters should never be served raw or rare and should be cooked until the internal temperature is at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Serve with pesto or a nice chimichurri sauce.

Headline of the Week

After reading The Commercial Appeal article about Michael Frick, recently named market president for Bank of America in Memphis, it became clear that the 48-year-old banker was indeed a rising star in the industry. And yet, "Frick A Rising Star in Banking" reads a little too much like a euphemistic personal ad.

King's Crown

According to WHBQ, the family of Henry Weiss, D.D.S., will auction off a model of Elvis Presley's teeth and a crown made especially for Presley. Let's all hope and pray the King didn't have a proctologist.

Headline of the Week II

A clever headline can be a thing of beauty, but who at the Memphis Daily News thought it was a good idea to title a brief about the Memphis Area Limb Loss Support Group, "Out on a Limb"? At least there was no mention of a "hoppin' good time."

Innocent!

Your Pesky Fly would like to thank everyone for their concern and for all the offers of cake, cookies, and conjugal visits. But when the CA reported that "Authorities have identified Christopher Davis, 20, of Memphis, as the alleged robber who was shot while trying to rip off an armored car," it wasn't me. Still, if any of those offers still stand, I do hate to see a good cookie go to waste.
