From "New Leaders Announced for Memphis City Council Committees," which prompted our commenters to get into a debate:

"I realize that some of the folks that post on the Flyer website appear to be engaging in mental masturbation ... They are engaged in a game that somehow involves whacking moles, those cute little furry creatures that tunnel under my tomato plants. In light of that, I am suggesting we form a "Save the Moles" foundation. ... There will be a Save the Moles 5k race and walk today starting in front of the Board of Education building. The course is really simple. It involves running in circles around that building until you have run five kilometers or until you become too dizzy to run anymore." — DriftBoat

From "Nick Calathes in Denver and the Lionel Leash," Kevin Lipe's analysis of Memphis Grizzly Nick Calathes' performance:

"I thought Calathes looked more comfortable against Detroit, or maybe it was just because Detroit is terrible."


From "Calling All Hotties," a post calling for nominations for the Flyer's annual Hotties issue:

"I feel like the stars are aligned this year for me to be a hottie. I've really been on a self-improvement kick these past months. My staff says I need some swagger with a little bit of arrogance thrown in for good measure. So from now on, Smitty will refer to himself in the third person. By the way, Smitty has a bodacious bod. Smitty knows this because he was asked to be on the Dr. Oz show." — Smitty Patterson


From a tweet regarding Flyer Hottie nominations:

"Goal for 2014: be the 'Twitter Hottie' in the @memphisflyer Hottie edition." — Lauren @VanitySized

A response to Flyer editor Bruce VanWyngarden's tweet about people having to drive to Arkansas to legally purchase fireworks for New Year's Eve:

"Cannabis & guns in bars is why I left mps for CA! It's way freer. xoxo"
