Fly on the Wall 

Mushrooms, Zombies, and Cataclysmic Explosions

Correction

Last week, "Fly on the Wall" left an important name out of a story with this quote from British newspaper The Independent: "The first thing that became obvious is that they aren't lying with that name — the whole world and his mother was waiting outside. It was the largest congregation of lard-arses I have ever seen. I took both to be promising signs." The "they" in question is Gus's "World Famous" Fried Chicken. We regret the omission.

Mushroom

Your Pesky Fly noticed this mushroom wagon parked outside a local market recently. Funny, we always thought it was spelled "shiitake."

Walking Dead

In a recent story about a Florida man who broke into a motel room escaping from "zombies," psychology writer Benjamin Radford cited other cases of haint-inspired vandalism, including one from Memphis. Almost a year before the Florida zombie attack, Mabry Guenther of Arkansas ripped the sheetrock out of his Memphis hotel room to free trapped demons.

Stalling

This note was observed in the men's room of the Visible School's Crosstown location: "Dudes, please do not put anything in the toilet other than toilet paper (and the usual human byproducts that brought you here). This is hugely important, as these toilets are directly connected to the epicenter of the planet Earth and the world will end in a cataclysmic explosion of apocalyptic proportions if any machine-made items, other than toilet paper, are placed inside. Thank you."
