Fly on the Wall 


If there's any truth to this headline from c/, there could soon be a significant online migration of users from MySpace to Facebook. According to reporter Caroline McCarthy, MySpace could soon be "flooded by Elvis impersonators."

There's nothing wrong with being an Elvis impersonator, per se, but who wants their inbox full of messages reading, "Thankyavurrymush for bein' muh friend."

MySpace will team up with Graceland to host an official Elvis karaoke competition for "Elvis Week.

Kong Hungry!

Some primates have all the luck. In June, Mwelu, the Memphis Zoo's only male gorilla, was given a treat when the mother and daughter team of Penny and Kebara, two gorillas from San Diego, came to Memphis to get Mwelu "in the mood for a family."

Now Rachel Ray, the preternaturally perky host of various cooking shows, is filming a "personalized greeting" for the oversexed gorilla. Ray, who was unable to visit Mwelu in person, filmed the segment after learning that the gorilla is obsessed with her television show.

Sho' nuff?

Last week, the Rev. George Brooks, a Murfreesboro-based clergyman who is campaigning against Congressman Steve Cohen, told Fly on the Wall that he doesn't do interviews.

Apparently, however, he does do imitations ... of Steppin' Fetchit. In his most recent handout, Brooks takes controversial blogger and radio host Thaddeus Matthews to task, saying, "You sho' knows dat if you downlow white and Jew-type womans, even if dey is lack de Jezebel kind, you'd beez outta yo' gig, and outta da town too, 'for de sun goed down. And eben massa Steve Cohen wouldn't cum to yo' rescoo."

Clearly, Brooks doesn't remember when Matthews, who is ecumenical in his offensiveness, asked the burning question "Does Carol Chumney Have The Biggest Set On The [City] Council?"
