Fly on the Wall 

Dog Food

While shopping at an East Memphis Kroger this weekend, your Pesky Fly came to a staggering realization: Memphis must eat a staggering amount of cake. Layer cakes and sheet cakes filled the bakery's shelves and display case. But from among all of the intricately decorated sweet treats frosted to look like everything from Spider-Man to watermelons to waving American flags for Memorial Day, one cake stood out. I've been calling her Fifi. Nothing brings life to a party or joy to the eyes of children like cutting off a dog's head and serving it up on a plate. Yum.

Eternally Elvis

Over the years, Fly on the Wall has chronicled a number of unusual Elvis-related items that have gone on the auction block. The latest item up for bid is one of strangest and should appeal to the fan who's serious about showing his or her undying devotion. This June, celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien will be selling the crypt inside the mausoleum at the Forest Hill Cemetery where Presley was entombed for two months before his body was relocated to the Meditation Garden at Graceland. Elvis slept here indeed.

Verbatim

Memphis rapper Yo Gotti told FUSE TV that he would shoot more videos in his North Memphis neighborhood if he wasn't "kinda like banned" by the police: "They don't want me over there," he said. "They said when I'm in that area it's too hyper, something like that. They be tripping."
