Unbe-WEAVE-Able reporting and the CA's awkward advertising for Memphis Most

comment

Unbe-WEAVE-Able

You know what is UnbeWEAVEable? Spell check, that's what. This unfortunate promotional image teased the latest in a never-ending series of WMC reports about weaves, weave-related crime, and weaves that might be possessed by demon ghosts from foreign countries where people aren't Christian. Sadly, we're not making any of this up. This time, WMC's senior weave correspondent Felicia Bolton used science — or a microscope anyway — to get to "the root" of the problem and determine whether or not products claiming to be made of 100 percent human hair are made from 100 percent human hair. The very serious two-part series was ultimately inconclusive.

Game of Fail

It's that special time of year when The Commercial Appeal asks Mid-Southerners to vote in their Memphis Most poll, a reader survey created to celebrate regional favorites and sell some ads. You know, like the Flyer's "Best of" issue, only awkward. And speaking of awkward, what image could be more quintessentially Memphis than a white hand knuckle-clutching a flaming scepter and/or cattle brand? Check the apocalyptic cityscape in this image — just the kind of place everybody wants to live in and open a business. And this King — is it Elvis? Lawler? The Scorpion King?
