Hacking it

The website for Five in One, a Watkins Avenue venue for contemporary and experimental art, was hacked last week, resulting in a pair of delightful e-mails to the Flyer's staff. The first message employed the subject line "F%@k your mother," and the rather concise body concluded "cuz she's a f%@king bitch."

A quasi-apology followed. "Apparently our website and its accompanying listserve was compromised last night and it sent out an email referring to your mother," it began. "Please know that we probably do not know your mother, and do not, in fact, have any negative feelings toward her."

PSA

There's good news for dudes who don't want Memphis airline workers laughing at their junk. The men's Privacy Brief Radiation Blockers (also available in boxers) are festooned with an X-ray-blocking fig leaf. The underpants, available online, are ironically priced at $19.84.

Warts and All

On Wednesday, December 1st, Tennessee officials will unveil the Walking Tall Trail, a guide to West Tennessee created as part of the Discover Tennessee Trails & Byways initiative. The opening event is scheduled for the home of Buford Pusser, the stick-and-machine-gun-wielding lawman immortalized in five movies and a short-lived TV series. The historical guide promises "Tennessee like you've never seen it." And while it may showcase some familiar spots such as Graceland, it can also help visitors find the Shamrock, the ruined hooker hotel where Pusser gunned down his arch-nemesis Louise Hathcock.
