MEMernet: COVID’s Web and Sexy Treats 

A roundup of Memphis on the World Wide Web.


Citizens of the MEMernet have been sharing photos of the hilarious Halloween decorations at this Central Gardens home.

The scene is an IRL political cartoon. In it, Donald Trump is spider-webbed to a tree surrounded by coronavirus particles. Imaginary polling data shows the homeowner is a front-runner to win Halloween.

Dog whistle?

Memphis Reddit users talked through the seemingly odd price of a propane tank at a West Memphis Tru Value hardware store last week.

The store had the tanks listed at $14.88. Some believed the price referenced the 14/88 white supremacy symbol. The "Fourteen Words" slogan seeks to secure a future for "our people" and "white children." The "88" is a veiled reference to "H," the eighth letter of the alphabet, which together is "Heil Hitler."

Memphis Reddit users thought the price was too arbitrary to be anything other than a dog whistle and that tank prices are usually higher than that.

Sexy treats

Over on the Where Black Memphis Eats Facebook group, someone requested this dessert but with chocolate-covered strawberries.
