Boo Boo the Chicken
Marian “Sis” Morris of Arkadelphia (Clark County) and Boo Boo the Chicken appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno; March 10, 2006. Boo Boo attracted national attention after he drowned in a pond and was brought back to life by Morris in a rare act of mouth-to-beak resuscitation. Leno’s reaction to one part of the story illustrates the continuing stereotype that Arkansas is a backward state.
