Fly on the Wall 1392 

Hoodies required, Halloween drugs, and graffiti

Oh Shell!

We think management at the Shell Station on Poplar near Planned Parenthood may want to rethink what appears to be an awfully demanding list of requirements for service. According to this list posted on the door, all potential customers must wear shoes, shirts, masks, and hoodies, or they'll get "no service." While we here at Fly on the Wall love the practicality of hoodies, requiring customers to wear one seems a little over the top. And we think management will soon regret their strict position on masks.

WTFTV?

Last week Fly on the Wall made fun of WREG for reporting an unfounded news scare about drug dealers attempting to pass off colorful ecstasy pills as Halloween candy. We would officially like to apologize for singling out WREG. Not because the story wasn't B.S. (it was!), but because, in the ensuing week, Fox-13 reported the exact same unsourced story. And WMC reporter Kontji Anthony posted it to social media. Like Mama Fly always said, better scared than informed.

Urban Art

Your Pesky Fly recently described the "Hell Naw" graffiti on Wagner Place downtown as the best bad graffiti since "Superman Dam Fool." That tag has since been joined by other less than positive messages like, "AmeriKKK" and "Knee Deep in Sh#t." And also by this adorable little cosmic clown.
