Tennessee's porn-busting, fetus-rights fighter, Trump fan, and gubernatorial hopeful Mae Beavers stopped by WBIR's studio in Knoxville to make a big announcement. "I don't believe I'm too conservative at all," she said.

"Hold on, I'm peeing." — polite if immodest drug suspect Alexis Bloodworth, who was caught peeing in the backyard of a home. Then she stood up and gave her drugs to the police.

But Kingly cosplayers sometimes generate headlines so unexpected it would be wrong not to share. Consider this nugget from the U.K. website Devonlive.com: "Elvis man banned from every karaoke in town after playing maracas."

"I've had my liberty taken away from me," said Elvis impersonator Richard Carpenter.
