Fly on the Wall 1413 

Drug bears, demon weaves, and babies.

Build-a-Mule

WTTE-TV Columbus reports that a plan to transport drugs to Memphis was thwarted when a shipping clerk got suspicious and discovered a bottle of liquid codeine inside an adorable teddy bear.

Hair Story

WMC-TV's investigative story about demonically possessed hair weaves has gone international. Last week The Sun, the UK's largest daily tabloid, reported a "massive spike" in crimes related to the "beauty business" in Memphis. The Sun excerpted passages from WMC's original report and quoted a local hairstylist saying "selling hair is like crack." Which it is because ... we give up.

Daily Outrage

Sometimes you tell a bad joke. Sometimes you tell a joke so bad somebody calls the police. Memphis law enforcement is currently investigating Facebook user Jaton Justsilly Jaibabi for posting a picture of two small children with their hands and mouths duct-taped and a caption reading, "Kids for sale, 45% off because they bad." On one hand, duct-taping your kids up hostage-style is probably never a good idea, even if you're just trying to score a couple of thumbs ups and maybe a laughy face. On the other, your Pesky Fly is thankful there were fewer people on Facebook when his children were in the larval stage.
