Chicken, Hitler, and Jesus.

Check-fil-A

Talk about a business model with legs ... and thighs ... and wings. Last week's Board of Adjustment meeting found board members reviewing a variance request by what appears to be a payday loan establishment that offers customers a little something extra. And by "a little something extra," We mean, of course, chicken.

The aptly named Chicken & Checks is planned for Elvis Presley Boulevard. So you can cash your payday loan check and buy some chicken with it? Or do you get a wing plate and biscuit with every check cashed? No matter how you slice it, that's Memphis to the bone. May God and Jack Pirtle have mercy on our souls.

This tax preparation business leaflet caught your Pesky Fly's eye because an unfortunately placed shadow makes the superhero mascot look like a cartoon Hitler in tights.

Just Ghostbusted

Memphis native and SNL cast member Leslie Jones has been tapped to star in the gender-flipped reboot of Ghostbusters. We can only hope her presence will bring shooting to Memphis, because no giant statue deserves to be brought to terrifying life half as much as the Statue of Liberation at World Overcomers Church, aka "Freedom Jesus."
