Fly on the Wall 1385 

Judge Joe Brown, rapper IHeartMemphis, Tony Allen, and Elvis coffins

Verbatim

"If I saw [him] in a bar ... I might give him some four-letter words." — former Memphis judge and reality TV star Joe Brown's thoughts on Judge Harold Horne, who charged him with contempt of court. Brown has since served his five days in jail and is, once again, a free man.

Heart Trouble

According to the website allhiphop.com, "WREG News, a local Memphis station, has been charged with aggravated rape in a case where and and another man allegedly raped and intoxicated woman." All typos are theirs, and we're reasonably certain the author is alluding to a WREG news report about "Hit the Quan" rapper iHeartMemphis, who was recently accused of sexual assault. The budding performer, who shares his name with a series of Midtown murals and a pro-Memphis blog, denies the charges. Presumably, WREG does as well.

Telephone Tony

When Griz super-hooper Tony Allen live tweets his favorite TV shows, people take notice. When he calls a bunch of people in the morning before their second cup of coffee, they take issue. The automated Allen-voiced phone call that launched thousands of snarky comments went something like this: "Hello everyone, this is the Grindfather, Tony Allen, from the Memphis Grizzlies. Being successful takes a lot of hard work and dedication. And it includes going to school every day. Go get that education! Grit and grind, go to school!" What an a-hole.

Neverending Elvis

"The Elvis coffin has definitely become a talking point amongst the public and is showing them that not every funeral has to be the same." — funeral director Christopher Sample explains how he's shaking up the death industry to U.K.'s Shields Gazette.
