Overheard from a man musing over an article in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about a possible plan to introduce Florida panthers into Georgia’s Okefenokee Swamp: “If Florida panthers come to Georgia, would they still be Florida panthers?”

Attractive young woman in a craft shop in the Buckhead section of Atlanta, Georgia, asking for a product called “Mr. Stiffy.” “And what exactly do you do with it?” a bemused clerk asks. “The woman who told me about the product is a widow,” the young woman replies.

A large F scrawled in front of a sign saying Utility Work near the Emory University campus in Atlanta, Georgia, so that it now reads “Futility Work.’’
