Fly on The Wall



Midtown Cuisine
It's official: Stuck-up Midtowners are no longer allowed to make Frayser jokes. That became off-limits last week when police, lured by the intoxicating aroma of slow-roasted varmint and neighbors' complaints, found a man grilling a raccoon in the parking lot of a Madison Avenue apartment building. In addition to some of the most mouth-watering, garbage-fed coon meat in the Mid-South, police officers also found large skinning knives and several buckets of an "unknown material." Police arrested Adam Eubank, the coon chef's 26-year-old brother, for activities related to the manufacture of methamphetamine. Here's a picture of Adam sporting what can only be described as a coon-eating smirk.

Neverending Elvis
It appears that the dead king is, well, you know ... dead. When it comes to top-earning deceased celebrities, Elvis Presley is usually the king of the boneyard. But for the second year in a row, Michael Jackson, the pop star who was once married to Elvis' daughter Lisa Marie, has topped Forbes magazine's annual list of super-rich dead guys. Presley, who took in a not-too-shabby $55 million, was eclipsed by Jackson, whose music sales and publishing garnered $175 million.

Green Pastures
When the farmer's away, the bulls will play. And let's face it: Memphis music legend Al Green has livestock problems. The singer is on tour, and according to news reports, several of the bulls Green keeps on his property have broken through the fence and have been seen wandering in and around Shelby Forest.
