Fly on the Wall 1553 

Neverending Elvis

The web show "Good Mythical Morning" has been in Memphis visiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, sampling barbecue, comparing beans, and ranking stuff like you do on the internet.

One segment, titled "We About to Stuff Our Face-land Up in Graceland," found co-hosts Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal sampling the King's favorite dishes.

They were surprised Elvis' infamous bacon-fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwich contained no actual bacon. They also tried fried green tomatoes, banana pudding, Chicken à la King, and a fruit-and-nut-laden jello-mold called Pepsi Cola salad.

Verbatim

"Dang, it's Thanksgiving. There's people in Subway with their families, you know? Don't be running around naked." — witness to a Thanksgiving Day incident on Summer Avenue involving a mentally ill man and a bag of potato chips. As reported by Fox 13.

Hallmark

"Most Hallmark movies don't take place in actual cities. Most Hallmark movies take place in Christmas landscape paintings, some blandly cheery small town with a cutesy name like Evergreen or Snowy Falls or Kringleville or Snugglytown.

"So, it's amazing how different and unique a Hallmark movie can feel with merely a sense of location — as is the case with Christmas at Graceland, which (spoiler alert) is set in Memphis." — Matt Mueller, culture editor for OnMilwaukee.com. He gave the Memphis-shot flick a score of "bless its heart."
