The most recent episode of “Mad Men” featured no Betty the Drapes. The absence of the suddenly plump blonde, who had been pregnant in real life, gave AMC watchers a chance to rest from a week spent working overtime to spew out as many “Fat Betty” jokes as ice cream sundaes she took in.

Though this post comes about six days late, the following “Fat Betty” parody of Ram Jam’s “Black Betty” still only has about 26,000 views on the YouTube. WHY? HOW? This should have millions.
