Dolly Parton, taking advantage to be outside on a warm day for December, was showing several young fans in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee how she used to jump rope as a kid by taking the rope they were using and trying hard to skip while singing.
"My dog Brownie or was it Skip?" and that's as far as she got as a swinging boob caught her one in the face and another flattened one of the little girls.
Before all the action stopped, all three were on the ground plus three male bystanders who had attempted to stop the swinging duo.
"I never chased one like that before", stated Elmer Morrison, as he pushed his wife Edith away to stop their fighting long enough to talk to us. The wife swinging away herself and landing a good one on Elmer's upper lip which swelled up till he could talk no more.
They then walked away with the wife still yelling at Elmer for trying to get Dolly by the flesh. "Im mus dust tyin tee helph Doolie, Edeeth."
Everyone and every thing finally settled down except one guy who had hit his head on the front bumper of a parked car whom an ambulance had hauled away.
"Soooeee!", stated Dolly. "I'm sorry girls. I hadn't done that in 50 years and back then, these things were pretty tame."
She then gave the girls and the one guy left sitting on the ground tickets to her Holiday Special that will be filmed at Dollywood and shown on The Country Music Cable Channel.
Someone finally snapped their fingers in front of the guy on the ground but he never responded until almost everyone was gone.
"I never had anything to drink in there", he pointed back at the restaurant. "But I feel about as knockered out as if I had."
