Fly on the Wall 1508 


Filthy-minded Fly on the Wall readers have shared questions and concerns regarding the 3Ds over Memphis.

New drawings for a post-renovation Cook Convention Center don't seem to include an infamous design that's supposed to look like music notes but, as FOTW pointed out in 2015, actually kind of looks like three ding-a-lings standing next to each other.

The 3D, which, as evidenced by this reader-submitted photo, looks like it might have been inspired by garbage can designs at the New Orleans Convention Center, is still with us for the time being, though. And more keen-eyed observers point to evidence of its staying power.

The accidentally bawdy logo may not be re-erected, but it is very clearly included in the rendering. Every rendering in fact. Right there in the watermark.

Lauren Tara LaCapra typed this word at the top of a forwarded email from former Memphis Congressman Harold Ford Jr.

It's quoted in a New York Times article about allegations of misconduct and Ford's fall from grace with longtime employer Morgan Stanley.
