Fly on the Wall

Pretty Fly, Secret Target, South Eden.



Pretty Fly
Even if he can't eat them anymore, "King" Jerry Lawler seems happy to see Twinkies back on store shelves. The Memphis-based wrestler and WWE announcer recently tweeted this double-fisted photo along with the message, "Wish I could have one."


It's been a big week for Lawler. Not only has Hostess' classic cream-filled snack cake come back from the brink of oblivion, the King also signed a contract with Resort Casino in Tunica to house a Jerry Lawler museum.  

Secret Target
We heart the "I Heart Memphis" blog. But the Fly-team was somewhat confused by the blogger's conclusion to a heartfelt post about Williamson Park. Apparently, the park is "a neighborhood secret in the same way that the Target on Colonial is a secret: you either know that it's there or you don't, and once you do, you don't look back."

For those who aren't in the know, the secret Target, though hard to spot, is on Colonial and can be identified by a big red target on the "Target" sign. It's located in a shopping center near an enigmatical Williams-Sonoma, and a clandestine Pottery Barn.

South Eden
Tennessee lawyer Chris Sevier is taking legal action against computer giant Apple because its devices are capable of, and will, in fact, display porn should an innocent user accidentally type "Fuckbook" instead of "Facebook." That's what happened to Sevier, and according to a legal document, "The plaintiff began desiring younger, more beautiful girls featured in porn videos than his wife, who was no longer 21." What is it about apples?
