Fly on The Wall 

Classics

Your Fly team has always loved a good hair salon name, and the Curl Up & Dye on Chelsea just west of Danny Thomas is a classic.

Verbatim

Last year, gay Star Trek actor George Takei took to YouTube to take on East Tennessee legislator Stacey Campfield's "Don't Say Gay" bill with a campaign urging people to substitute "Takei" for "gay" if the legislation passed. Now he's back on Campfield's case, and he's added Tennessee Representatives John Ragan and Richard Floyd to his list. "These gentlemen remind me of certain friends of Dorothy," Takei said. "It doesn't take a wizard to see they are missing brains, heart, and courage. Mr. Campfield, your 'Don't Say Gay' bill is truly a straw man."

Sh#t Tony Tweets

Tony Allen got political during last week's Knicks-Celtics game. As the Celtics advanced, he tweeted, "Can somebody call obama 2 spend some money on defense!! In my queen latifah voice!!" Then, in his own voice he added, "Espn should pay me 4 these commentating skills!!"

Flower Power

If you're looking for golden showers, look no further than the West Memphis Walmart, where these beautiful climbing roses were spotted in the lawn and garden center.
