Fly on the Wall 1497 

Verbatim

"Closed borders white nation, now we start the deportation." This awkward couplet was chanted by white supremacists marching in Shelbyville, Tennessee, last Saturday.

It's possibly the least memorable slogan since ... well ... we forget. According to White Lives Matter representatives, a similar rally in Murfreesboro was cancelled because someone had "intel" (paramilitary speak for "read on the internet") suggesting the city was "a lawsuit trap" and because 1,000 protesters showed up armed with chants like, "Nazis suck."

Neverending Elvis

Reports from the last year suggest a slump in the value of Elvis collectables.

Organizers of the latest Presley-related auction have a bone to pick with that theory. On November 4th, a 44-year-old X-Ray of Elvis' fractured left pinky finger goes up for grabs.

Bidding is expected to start at $1,000, and the X-Ray is expected to fetch between $4,000-$6,000.

Listed

While it's hard to say just how many Memphis kids had a terrible, no-good Halloween, WalletHub, the clickbaity financial website, ranked the city 97th on a list of fun cities for parties and trick-or-treating.
