Inspiration strikes in the strangest of places.
Belle Gunness was a lady fair
In Indiana State.
She weighed about three hundred pounds,
And that is quite a weight.
That she was stronger than a man
Her neighbors all did own;
She butchered hogs quite easily,
And did it all alone.
But hogs were just a sideline
She indulged in now and then;
Her favorite occupation
Was a-butchering of men—Anonymous, “The Ballad of Belle Gunness”
