Fly on the Wall 1415 

Mayor stuff, a French fry fight, and angels climbing rainbows

Mayor Stuff

Last week, Hernando, Mississippi Mayor Chip Johnson told TV reporters that the nude photo he texted a girlfriend, while embarrassing, shouldn't interfere with his performance running city government. But what about everybody else's performance? Who can even think about mayor stuff when all they can think about is mayor stuff? YIKES!

W[TF]REG?

According to an in-depth report by WREG, lunch hour was briefly disrupted at the Wendy's on Winchester last Wednesday when employees got into an argument over a customer's order. Grainy cell phone video made it difficult for the reporter to tell if "things got physical," but it was clear to her that something went wrong with the French fries and people were yelling at each other "while helpless customers watched it all go down."

W[TF]MC?

WMC, the station that received international attention for its report on demonically possessed hair weaves, shared this story about a South Carolina woman who saw an angel climbing a rainbow.

Meanwhile, not a single Memphis TV station picked up U.K. tabloid reports about a Derbyshire man who saw Elvis in the fire of his woodburning stove.
