Babs the Babe, Bimms the Boxer, and the Big Ham

It is 1933, and the world is in the fourth year of the Great Depression, with soup kitchens and bread lines full of hard-working men who are now out of work. Large companies go bankrupt and wealthy men who are suddenly poor, jump to their death from their office windows. The President of the United States promises that “Prosperity is just around the corner,” but it will take World War Two in the 1940’s to shake the world out of this economic depression.

As our adventure opens, we are in the home of absent-minded Professor Higginbottom, who has created chemical products that are being manufactured by the Higgingbottom Chemical company, and providing the family with a life of luxury. Unfortunately, their lives will change as they suddenly discover that the company has entered bankruptcy and the lucrative dividend checks will no longer be funding the family lifestyle.

Youngest daughter Babs is a precocious young girl who likes to bathe with the door open, and would like to find a college for nude students. She is all about biology, nature, nudity, and all of the things that puritanical America shudders at. While wealthy people are beginning to have very small families, she wants to marry a big hulk of a man who can father many, many children. When she sees a newspaper photo of professional boxer “Gunboat” Bimms, she decides that he will become her husband.

Fortunately for the family, “Gunboat” Bimms is scheduled to fight the champ, and win or lose, he will get a paycheck for that fight that will keep the whole family in money for many years. Unfortunately for the family, he has decided to become a Shakespearian actor and never fight again. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
