Fly on the Wall 

Repo Man

Last week, Memphians who love to be outraged were given a very special Easter egg when news broke that a car had been repossessed from a Memphis neighborhood while a 4-year-old child slept in the back seat. After many wild accusations were flung, it was discovered that payments on the kid were, in fact, up to date.

Tiger Food

Memphis Business Journal scribe Ed Arnold noted that new NCAA rules might allow players to receive unlimited meals or snacks and has wondered whether on not partnerships with Gus's Fried Chicken and Central BBQ might give the Tigers an "unbeatable edge." Large beatable bottoms are, of course, the other option.

Tasty Treats

Brett and Mitch Magdovitz are pastry lovers who grew up in Tennessee where they fell in love with Gibson's Donuts. That love affair inspired the brothers, who now live in Boulder, Colorado, to launch Bronuts, a startup specializing in "doughnut balls." Bronut specialties include Bleu Balls with bleu cheese, Monkey Balls with banana filling, and Chocolate Salty Balls, inspired by Chef, the South Park character voiced by Isaac Hayes.

Neverending Elvis

The Three Olives company provides flavored vodka fans with a lot of interesting choices. S'mores vodka, for example, tastes like the campfire favorite while Dude-flavored vodka doesn't taste nearly as gross as one might expect. Three Olives has most recently launched a new Elvis-flavored vodka. It tastes like coconuts.
