Fly on the Wall 

Still number one

Hooray! Memphis finally has been singled out for being number one on a couple of lists that have absolutely nothing to do with fatness, laziness, crime, education, or college basketball. Airports Council International, an association of the world's airports, has named Memphis International Airport the number-one air-cargo airport in the world for the 16th consecutive year!

Also, an attention-grabbing study conducted by Prevention, a monthly health and wellness magazine, listed Memphis as the most convenient city in Tennessee for walking. The Prevention study looked at factors such as parks and green space but failed to consider issues like fatness, laziness, or fear of violent gun-toting rapists on strawberry meth.

According to an article published by The National Enquirer — and elaborated upon by Canada's KBS radio — Priscilla Presley "utilizes" her dead ex-husband's "secret pre-stage ritual" to warm up for her Dancing With the Stars appearances. What is the amazing 15-second act that "recharged" the King's "batteries" and left him "glowing"? More importantly, is it legal? The oldest Dancing With the Stars contestant didn't share all the details, sadly. She only said that she "channels Elvis in her mind," forcing herself to "achieve Zen-like concentration by uttering [a] secret chant!"

Justin Timberlake has generously donated $100,000 to both the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum and the Memphis Music Foundation. The pop star turned actor says contributing to Memphis' music legacy is important to him. Besides, even the biggest stars in the world have to clean out the change from behind the sofa cushions sometimes.
