Fly on the Wall 1490 

Notable

Tennessee's porn-busting, fetus-rights fighter, Trump fan, and gubernatorial hopeful Mae Beavers stopped by WBIR's studio in Knoxville to make a big announcement. "I don't believe I'm too conservative at all," she said.

Quotable

"Hold on, I'm peeing." — polite if immodest drug suspect Alexis Bloodworth, who was caught peeing in the backyard of a home. Then she stood up and gave her drugs to the police.

Neverending Elvis

Fly on the Wall likes to reserve this headline for stories about the real, true Elvis and his posthumous impact on Memphis and the world.

But Kingly cosplayers sometimes generate headlines so unexpected it would be wrong not to share. Consider this nugget from the U.K. website Devonlive.com: "Elvis man banned from every karaoke in town after playing maracas."

"I've had my liberty taken away from me," said Elvis impersonator Richard Carpenter.

Fat Chance

When you see a tanker driving through Midtown sporting an "Inedible Fat Not Intended for Human Food" sticker, it really does get you to thinking about the word "intended."
