Fly on The Wall 

Facebooked

The shopping deals one can find using social networking sites never ceases to amaze. These chinos, for example, are believed (by Facebook advertisers) to be the very pants the Lord drank from during the Last Supper. It is also believed that the quest to find them in the right size and color is what started the J. Crewsades. Happy Easter, and nice pants.

'68 Comeback

The Ramada Inn on Brooks Road was recently featured in USA Today after a new ownership group gave the hotel a $3.5 million makeover. The makeover includes modern furniture and rooms designed to meet all of a guest's digital needs. According to USA Today, the hotel's Trumpets Restaurant "has gone through a complete renovation, and will now offer farm-to-table cuisine rather than dishes made from Sysco ingredients." Did you see what happened there, people? A national article about a Graceland-area hotel/restaurant avoided use of the word "hunka" or a mention of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. It can be done.

Tweet of the Week

From WMC-TV newsman Jason Miles: "Man murdered in Marshall, Co. was double amputee. Half brother in custody ...". Twitter is populated by smartasses, so it wasn't long before someone asked if the half-brother was armed.

Verbatim

After the Tennessee House Health Subcommittee advanced a measure to legalize medical marijuana, Representative Jeanne Richardson explained the measure to the media: "Medical cannabis is no longer a radical idea. This is not Cheech and Chong with a bong."
