Fly on the Wall 

Prince Mongo, DJ Paul, and monsters

Return of the King

"King" Jerry Lawler returned to the WWE last week after suffering an on-air heart attack. Here's what he told WWE interviewer Michael Cole: "It's not very often that I'm at a loss for words ... but I really don't know how to express my gratitude and the appreciation I feel right now for my city, Memphis, Tennessee." It may be time to consider some public art depicting Lawler pile-driving Andy Kaufman.

Alien Analysis

While visiting the studios of Memphis Sports Live last week, Memphis space alien/politico Prince Mongo of Zambodia told U.S. presidential contenders Mitt Romney and Barack Obama what he would do if he were to be elected commander in chief. "I would make the banks stop being the rapists of the world," Mongo said. "All they do is steal our money one way or another." He also reminded listeners he was hatched from an egg laid by a black chicken and fertilized by a white chicken, making him a more perfect arbiter of racial affairs.

Rapolitics

Three 6 Mafia's DJ Paul followed in the footsteps of Al Kapone and dropped a track endorsing Dr. George Flinn for 9th District "congressmen." In his YouTube video, Paul says "George Flinn's looking out for us. Vote for him ... get your money up" while clips show Three 6 fans getting buck.

Memphis Monsters

The website, althistories.tumblr.com, showcases historical photographs and maps doctored to include images of flying saucers, giant lizards, and sea monsters. This shot of Gamera in Downtown Memphis is a favorite.
