Scared, Mongo Speaks, Beastly Prices

Scared
Has anybody else noticed this guy propped on Hamlin just north of Poplar? By day, these scarecrows keep birds out of a small community garden maintained by St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral. We’ve got no idea what they do when the moon comes up.

Mongo Speaks
Once a year, MemphiSport Live host Kevin Cerrito brings Memphis’ best-known extraterrestrial provocateur Prince Mongo, into the studio. Although he’s not currently running for office (well, except maybe for Grizzlies head coach), Mongo was feisty in his call for an armed revolt — against streetlights: “Why do we take this lying down?” he asked, referring to budget plans giving MLG&W control of city streetlights. “Why don’t you get up, get your guns, and shoot out every streetlight? And tell them you don’t want it, and don’t pay the taxes.” When he wasn’t rabble-rousing, Mongo answered personal questions and told listeners his secret for relaxing. “Big fart,” he said. “[Smells like] Paula Deen. Oh, she smells good. You ever been close to her? She’s got fragrances you can’t imagine.”

Beastly Prices
It’s not an especially well-kept secret that Lucifer, the bright, shining angel of the pit, is responsible for rigging gas prices. This Madison Avenue sign pretty much comes out and says so.
$666.9 for regular unleaded, now with a Turbo-Satan boost.
