Fly On The Wall: Awkward Superheroes and Candy 

Super Awkward

I really can't show you the entire photo that a WREG reporter tweeted last week from a charity 5K. As they say on the internet, it's just NSFW. I can, however, show you the top half of the photo and tell you just enough about what you're not seeing to make squeamish readers really wish I hadn't.

As you can see, Melissa Moon had her photo taken with Superman, Spider-Man, and Batman impersonators. Who wouldn't, right? Well, judging by the uncropped R-rated version of the photo, which is floating around the internet, if you really need to see it, Spidey and Bats both seem to have forgotten their underoos and are going "commando." Insert your own Peter Parker joke here.

Sweet Adventures

A recent Commercial Appeal feature spotlighting Mayor A C Wharton's "Blueprint for Prosperity" yielded this charming anecdote from the Whitehaven Christmas parade. Once upon a time Wharton was riding in a convertible through the streets of Whitehaven tossing individually wrapped pieces of candy.

"I don't want no damn candy. I want a job," one woman called out, causing the mayor to think. "We've been throwing them candy," he was quoted as saying. "What they want to do is to be able to buy their own candy."
