Here in the United States one of our favorite insipid sitcoms was "The Beverly Hillbillies," a story about a poor Appalachian family finding oil and moving to an obscenely wealthy section of California, where they were subjected to hilarious urban provincialism. Recent events inspire this idea for another insipid sitcom with a reversed theme. The theme song would go like this . . . Well come and hear a story 'bout a family feud Rich royalty, some in the nude Then one year it all fell to pieces And the royalty lost their free castle leases . . . Subsidies, that is . . . free rides . . . leaches. Well the first thing you know they're all dirt poor Country says "Y'Can't live here no more! "Somewhere else is where you ought to be." So they took a boat and train to Ken-tuck-y . . . Hills, that is. Hard work. In overalls. The Kentucky Royalty! ____________________________________________________ Andy Thomas-Cramer Note: In the United States, "overalls" refers to loose denim trousers with a piece covering the chest, for use in general farmwork like mucking the manure out of barns.
