What it didn’t give us is another peek into the life of the sad, overweight Betty Francis.
Fortunately, the Internet — in all its digital altruism — has come forward to deliver the gift of “Fat Betty.”
In case you haven't already seen it or inferred what it might be, “Fat Betty” is a YouTube clip that pairs images of the now larger Betty Francis with a lyrically altered version of the bluesy classic “Black Betty.”
The video is ridiculous. The audio sounds vaguely like it was recorded by Brak from “Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.” And the whole thing is potentially offensive to women, particularly Betty Francis. It’s also pretty funny. Take a look if you need a giggle while enjoying an afternoon snack of Bugles and ice cream sundaes.
