It's a Sign

While visiting the University of Memphis' Crews Center for Entrepreneurship, your Pesky Fly noticed a white board with some facts and figures and the words "constant poop."

We don't know what the business leaders of tomorrow are planning exactly, but this kind of long-range planning is commendable at least, possibly even visionary.

A Ring Thing

If you've been boycotting the WWE Hall of Fame, pending the immediate induction of Memphis wrestling legend Sputnik Monroe, boycott no more! Earlier this month, the brawling heel with two-tone hair was finally inducted into the HOF's legacy wing.

Monroe was a natural showman who used his box office appeal to speed up the integration of Memphis wrestling shows. He was active in sports entertainment from 1945-1988. Sputnik Monroe died in 2006. He was 77.
