Memphis Apocrypha: The Mayoral Victory Run

Now that we've seen how Captain Queeg might deliver his acceptance speech, I thought we should hear about another victory celebration, probably fictional, that happened 30 years ago. I was told the story by a friend who is a notorious liar.
Mayor Wyeth Chandler had the MPD cordon off the Mid-America Mall on election night. Once the area was secure, The Mayor stripped down to his underwear and began running up and down the street, clutching a bottle of Jack Daniels and yelling, "I won! I won!"
It's most certainly a lie.

By the way, Queeg is ultimately a sympathetic character.

It may be a lie, but it's a great story...

But the Chandler story about "the mayor needs help" is true and just as good.
