Fly on The Wall 

Moving Experiences

As WMC reporter Jamel Major reported on the move of the 5,000-pound statue of Rameses the Great to its new home at the University of Memphis, images from the Pyramid appeared on screen, including this sign instructing visitors to turn left for advance ticket sales and arena tours or right if they're looking for Hot Black Cocks, which, we assume, was some sort of British pudding served during the Titanic exhibit.

True Gospel

This week's best headline comes courtesy of CBS News: "Man Confuses Tenn. Cop with Jesus, Steals Car, Crashes." Darius Williams was apprehended on I-240 last week and asked a Memphis police officer if he was Jesus. The officer was not the Christian messiah, so Williams broke a few commandments and stole his police car, driving the wrong way down the interstate until he crashed into a fence.

Verbatim

In E! Online blogger Ted Casablanca's post dedicated to "High-larious Pot Quotes," he references a Playboy interview in which Justin Timberlake admits to smoking weed and says, "The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. ... Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high."

Bad Boys

WREG has discovered contraband is making it into the Memphis lock-up. Namely, junk food, pot, and cell phones. Some have expressed outrage over inmates living the high life, but this sounds like an excellent strategy for making prisoners too fat and lazy to escape.
