Fly on the Wall 1530 

WBDS-Memphis

This week's award for most awkward, faintly porny moment goes to Action News 5 reporter Janice Broach.

Broach redefined teaser with a promotional clip introducing the Germantown psychiatrist Valerie Augustus of Christian Psychiatrist, who has been accused of, "using riding crops and whips on some of her patients."

To illustrate the story, Broach held a riding crop in her right hand and gave her left hand a fierce little swat when she said, "riding crop." It totally happened.

Dammit, Gannett

When the bot and/or out-of-town editor editing Memphis' daily paper can't distinguish between Lucero, the Mexican entertainer, and Lucero, the enormously popular Memphis band, there's a problem.

Barbecue Sneaker

Memphis barbecue is allegedly the inspiration for artist Lizzie Darden's Tennessee sneaker.

Adidas commissioned female artists to design a one-of-a-kind Ultraboost X sneaker for each U.S. state. Darden's shoe is pink with what appears to be a slice of ham on the toe.
