It's official: Stuck-up Midtowners are no longer allowed to make Frayser jokes. That became off-limits last week when police, lured by the intoxicating aroma of slow-roasted varmint and neighbors' complaints, found a man grilling a raccoon in the parking lot of a Madison Avenue apartment building. In addition to some of the most mouth-watering, garbage-fed coon meat in the Mid-South, police officers also found large skinning knives and several buckets of an "unknown material." Police arrested Adam Eubank, the coon chef's 26-year-old brother, for activities related to the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Presley, who took in a not-too-shabby $55 million, was eclipsed by Jackson, whose music sales and publishing garnered $175 million.
