July 27, 1990

On July 27, 1990, Hungarian-American actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor began a three day jail sentence for slapping a police officer, Sergeant Taggart, in Beverly Hills when he pulled her over for a traffic violation. She said it was Beverly Hills and she was driving a Rolls Royce. The officer should have known better, it wasn’t like she driving  a cheap Lexus, or heaven forbid, a Chevrolet. She says he never would have caught her, if someone hadn’t slipped a banana in her tail-pipe.

    I don’t know why everyone goes on about her — probably because she had a more interesting name. She wasn’t even on “Green Acres”.

    I can do a pretty good impression of her though, if you’re interested.

    Just putting that out there.
