Fly on the Wall 

Cold Memphians, notorious for folding like origami chickens at the first sign of snow, could learn a thing or two from our more enterprising neighbors to the east. When Pigeon Forge was hit with a wintry mix, the Titanic Museum didn't shut down. The tourist attraction, which houses pieces of the famous seagoing death car, held an ice-carving event. That's like toilet-sledding at Graceland.

Junk & Stuff WREG's website offers the most interesting news links. This week's options include "Pictures of Girls with Tattoos," "Mug Shots of the Rich and Infamous," and "Pictures: Sexy Celebrities at the Beach." Here's a screenshot of the link to a story about TSA searches.

Unscandalous Urging Congress' newly installed Republican majority to support the recommendations of President Obama's oil spill commission, U.S. Representative Steve Cohen described the massive Deepwater Horizon leak as "a human, economic, and environmental disaster, a disaster that was both foreseeable and preventable." Cohen surprised critics by not comparing the 86-day leak to the nefarious experiments of SS physician Josef Mengele.

Verbatim   Maybe the Convention and Visitor's Bureau can cash in on marketing Memphis as the "Home of the World's Least Effective For Sale Sign." Homeowner Terry Nelson nailed a board to his house with this hand-scrawled message: "House for sale if you like the sound of loud music and gunfire, drunk drivers, dope sales 24/7 on your street. Welcome home!!!"
