Fly on the Wall

Shredding
Attention, CEOs and finance executives: October 29th is National Shred Incriminating Evidence ... uh ... we mean "Secure Your ID Day." The shredfest will be held in the University of Memphis parking lot at Poplar Avenue and Conlee Place.

Peace Out
According to Fox 13 News, Memphis jelly maker Dianne Hicks was hanging out in the kitchen, whipping up a batch of the sweet stuff, and missing her deceased mama when she received a sign from beyond the grave. As the ingredients came to a boil on the stove, Dianne was amazed to see that the image of a dove had formed in the saucepan. Better still: Fox 13 "Good Morning Memphis" host Greg Coy showed a blurry photograph of the delicious miracle, announced "I see a dove," and asked, "Folks at home, what do you see? Do you see a dove?" while the news crawl below announced the arrival of "pothead ring pops," lollipops shaped like pot leaves with the word "legalize" on the wrapper.
