Fly on the Wall 

Crack Up

Who doesn't think that a drive down Summer is incomplete without some random quotation marks and double entendre? Universal Glass has a brand-new paint job and now more than ever they want to see your "crack."

We're pretty sure they mean broken windows.

Memphis doesn't get much respect in the magazine world. We're always making some sensational worst cities list, and by all accounts, we're among the fattest, laziest, most depressed and crime-addled cities in the world. On the bright side, we're also very sober and a great place to retire or visit a cool film festival! Now, apparently, and due to completely random criteria, Travel & Leisure magazine has dubbed Memphis the ninth dirtiest, loudest, and rudest city in America. T&L generously notes that Memphis has improved its standing thanks to its 52-Clean litterbug hotline, but "Offenders get only a scolding letter in the mail — perhaps proof of the locals' easygoing nature." Voters also put Memphis in the top 10 for its "purposely sloppy barbecue and unrestrained music scene." Littering we get. But are there really places where restrained music and neat barbecue are considered a good thing?

Neverending Elvis

When The Wall Street Journal called pop singer Emin Araz oglu Agalarov "the Michael Bublé of Russia," the international recording artist said he'd rather be known as "the Elvis Presley of Azerbaijan." And who wouldn't?
