Brides of Chucky

You know Halloween is approaching when the center aisle at Walgreens begins to fill up with rubber rats, bleeding swords, screaming skulls, and skeleton armies. But this year the most terrifying items available aren't found on the seasonal aisle. If you want these twins from Wes Craven's Princess Collection, you'll have to visit the toy department.

Our Fault

According to a sign on the door at the recently closed downtown branch of Poplar Tunes, there are a lot of people not connected to the chain's Nashville ownership who are to blame for the store's closing. Even the city of Memphis, apparently.

Journalism!

According to examiner.com, an adventure in citizen-created journalism, a human/alien "hybrid baby" was recently spotted at Costco in Memphis. The article cited "top alien abduction researcher" Dr. David Jacobs of Temple University who is "convinced that the alien hybridization program is alarmingly evident in our society now." Thank goodness real people are finally addressing real issues.

Quote of the week

Jerry Arnold and Rodney McGregor, accused of stealing hundreds of dollars and two cases of beer, were arrested after police officers found the men passed out drunk in their car. Channel 3 reporter Jason Miles quoted the duo's Nutbush neighbor, saying: "There's a lot of people does that kind of mess around here. ... They qualify for being stupid."
