Fly on the Wall 

Mannequin nipples, pot, and Elvis

Beaming
While buzzing about the Oak Court Mall this weekend, Mr. and Mrs. Pesky Fly and both of our pesky larvae were stopped cold by this super-hot mannequin with her beautiful, perfectly round head and her big, prominent earrings. All of us were impressed by the mannequin's perky, lifelike attitude and also by those luscious sunglasses she's wearing. We also agreed that, with winter coming on and all, it was considerate of store employees to think of customers who'll want to know how this skin-tight bodysuit will look on them when temperatures plunge.

High-larious
This week's best headline award goes to the University of Memphis' Daily Helmsman for a special post-election toper: "Reefer-endum Madness." The paper reported that, while Colorado and Washington will be on a "Rocky Mountain high," the latest opportunity for a Southern state to liberalize marijuana legislation "went up in smoke" for Arkansas. Dope.

Neverending Elvis
According to The Daily Mail, England's Prince Harry, a military man who has gained the respect of his fellow soldiers, picked up the nickname "Elvis" shortly after His Highness' naked party pics emerged following a trip to Las Vegas. In equally useless Elvis news from the United Kingdom, The Express & Star from Wolverhampton reports that an area pub owner has developed "a novel way of getting rid of troublesome punters." He plays Elvis Presley music. Everybody knows that punters hate Elvis.
