Baby Betty on Highway 61

Baby Betty RPCC Collection Jim Linderman


In a convoluted story which reads like a mid-1960s Bob Dylan song off Highway 61, Fat lady Baby Betty sued sword swallower Patricia Smith for $3000 after being hit on the head with a soda bottle.  See the original story reported HERE by the AP, or use your imagination.

There was little midgets
and a long-haired gal
Great Shackles Charles
at the nasty trial

Dainty Dotty turned
to show some leg
her stockings fell
the judge turned red

Them Hula dancers
witnessed the row
Just keep quiet honey
and you'll get yours

  1. Oh, for the days of the 45 cent chicken dinner!

    I know, probably wages at 25 cents an hour or maybe in 1942 wages were up a little. Great post.
