Hubby Lobby

Given the Green family's history of being jerky in the name of religious freedom, your Pesky Fly found this wedding display in the Germantown Hobby Lobby heartening.

I know it's too good to be true. Some pro-birth-control prankster probably moved the burlap-wrapped letter "S" following the second "MR." But here at FOTW, we try to celebrate wonders whenever we can.

On the other hand, maybe they just really like that song "Broken Wings," a staple of kitschy 1980s playlists.

Weird Mississippi

Life imitated a worn-out Monty Python sketch last week when 78-year-old Walter Williams of Lexington, Mississippi turned out to be "not dead yet," in spite of the fact that he'd been pronounced so by the coroner, zipped into a body bag, and taken to Porter and Sons Funeral Home to be embalmed.

"He was not dead, long story short," funeral home manager Byron Porter was quoted as saying, explaining how it came to pass that Mr. Williams got better and started kicking and making noise inside his body bag trying to get out.
