Fly on the Wall 

Global Warming

Last week, Memphis experienced some relatively warm weather, but we never quite reached the highs predicted by The Commercial Appeal's website.

Hopefully, there wasn't a run on sunscreen at local markets.

Snow Ho Ho

Channel 3's Richard Ransom recently caught and corrected a typo in his teleprompter copy, thereby effectively robbing Fly on the Wall of some excellent snark. At least Ransom tweeted about his close call so we could all enjoy it: "A typo that was in my news script tonight at 5pm. Pls Read Out Loud: 'Not all parts of town had enough snow to play, but "hose" that did ...' You'll be glad to know I caught it in time, which I don't always do. But that typo would not have been good!!!" On the other hand, it wouldn't have been three exclamation points bad, either.

Grocery Items

Social networking is officially out of control. If there's anything worse than friending a bunch of goobers on Facebook ...

it's following a fancy nut blend on Twitter.
