Fly on The Wall 

Banksy?

You'd think by now that somebody would have invented a spell-check device for spray paint cans to prevent graffiti artists from embarrassing themselves. Take, for example, this message, painted on an old Salvation Army facility on Danny Thomas: "Thou Shalt Not Steel." It could be a secret message from Lex Luthor to Superman, but we mostly think it's just wrong.

Verbatim

Fly on the Wall has been quoting Justin Timberlake a lot lately, because, well, he's been quotable. Last week, we shared some of the star's thoughts about marijuana (he likes it!). This week, Timberlake's topic is hairstyles and Jersey Shore celeb Pauly D: "I don't like when I see guys do too much hair gel. But I don't mean Pauly D, because that's basically performance art."

Mongo Triumphant!

Fly on the Wall has been following the trials and tribulations of Robert "Prince Mongo" Hodges, the former restaurateur and self-proclaimed space alien who used to drive Memphians nuts with his out-of-control yard art until he moved to Volusia County, Florida, to drive people crazy with his out-of-control yard art. "If we don't defend our rights, then we'll have none," Hodges was quoted as saying after Judge William Parsons dismissed the most recent legal action for being too vague. Parsons, who required Mongo to wear shoes but allowed his goggles, wig, and bandolier of tiny rubber chickens, questioned the meaning of "debris" and asked, "Is it the toilet? Is it the chairs? Is it the bras and panties out on the line?"
