Wrestling Midgets

There was a fantastic headline in the Metro today: "Wrestling midgets killed by fake hookers". I think it is the "fake" that makes it so good. For the full sad story - with suitably bizarre photo - click on the heading.

Inexplicably I don't any songs on this theme, but here is a song about a hooker ("Old Compton Street Blues" by Al Stewart):

Here is a song about midgets - in happier times ("Three Jolly Little Dwarfs" by Zoot):

And here are a couple of legends from the Golden Age of Grapple, Giant Haystacks vs Big Daddy. Big Daddy's real name was Shirley Crabtree. One can only assume his parents were going for the "Boy Named Sue" effect. It worked.
