About "The Most Memphis-y Birthday Cake Ever?" and the Mid-South Coliseum-shaped cake for filmmaker Mike McCarthy:
"Jerry Lawler pops out of the cake once the candles are lit." — tomguleff

About "County Children Plunged into Apocalyptic School-like Hellscape":
"Meanwhile Bartlett mayor McDonald and Collierville mayor Joyner jointly sent State Farm disaster response teams to the carnage with the hope of selling a few policies. Like a good neighbor ..." — Midtown Mark

About "A Traffic Ticket That Makes No Sense?":
"You didn't pull a Reese Witherspoon or a George Zimmerman and ask him, 'Don't you recognize me, don't you know who I am?'" — CEBorst

About "Double Play" and the sale of The Boston Globe:
"I knew a guy from the Press-Scimitar about 30 years ago who was taking his severance and buying a small-town paper. He said then that the small markets would be the ones to survive. Who knew journalists knew so much? But I'll always miss my twice a day newspapers, my washboard abs, and my hairline." — CL Mullins

Comment of the Week:
About "Breaking Bad: Last Season Predictions":
"Vanderbilt is in the top 20 preseason. That is a sign of the End of Times. Concerning Breaking Bad, I don't know." — Senor
