MINNEAPOLIS - Jessica Bennett, mother of 19-month old Jonah Bennett, is thrilled that the man who slapped her baby could end up serving one year in prison.
Mrs. Bennett spoke with Tapioca Swizzle of Tittle Tattle Tonight and said that Joe Rickey Hundley, 60, AKA The Baby Slapper, said that when he hit her baby on the face he was merely trying to shoo away a fly.
The Minneapolis mom reminded the native of Hayden, Idaho, that there are no flies on planes and that flies only gravitate to nasty, smelly cruise ships like the Triumph, since renamed The USS O'Boy.
One of the passengers aboard the Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta stated that the reason why baby Jonah was crying in the first place was because he wanted a second bag of mini-pretzels and the flight attendant informed Mrs. Bennett that they were all out of mini-pretzels.
She did offer to substitute a rib-eye steak for little Jonah but his mom said that it would probably take him two hours to eat the whole thing and besides he prefers Chicken McNuggets which were unavailable.
In the meantime, Hundley has been fired from his job as president of The XYZ Apartment Cleaning Service and has reportedly already applied for unemployment benefits including food stamps, cheese, and a case of bottled diet water.
Hundley's attorney Marigold Sheenhauser of Pocatello, explained to him that The Cucamonga Chit Chat Chronicle newspaper has already named him The Meanest Man In America.
Sheenhauser says that she will suggest that her client agree to plead Ipso Flagrante Dumbitus and throw his slap happy butt on the mercy of the court.
Meanwhile Jessica Bennett told Whoopi Goldberg on The View that she has hired noted L.A. attorney Gloria Allred and will be filing a $5.1 million dollar lawsuit.
SIDENOTE: The word out of Tinsel Town is that Sky Mansion Pictures will soon begin filming a movie based on the baby slapping incident. The film will be titled, Oops - The Slap Heard Round The World and will star Eva Longoria as Jessica Bennett, Gary Busey as Joe Rickey Hundley, and Ke$ha as herself.
