ALEJANDRO AND ALBERTO JIMENEZ

A 65-year-old prostitute has been arrested in Mexico in connection with the murder of twin midget wrestling stars. Alejandro and Alberto Jimenez were found dead in a Mexico City hotel room earlier this summer.

The Jimenez brothers were two of Mexico’s most popular midget wrestlers. Police say they overdosed and died after they were drugged by a pair of prostitutes who failed to take into account the brothers’ diminuitive stature. Authorities say roving gangs of prostitutes often drug men in Mexico City then steal their wallets.

The 65-year-old woman who was arrested is a known prostitute. She is seen on a surveilance tape entering a hotel room with the Jimenez brothers, who were found dead the next morning. Authorities are still looking for a second prostitute who they describe as “the fat one.” Police theorize the hookers put eye drops in the Jimenez brothers’ drinks.

“CIVIL RIGHTS” GROUP WANTS TO MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO SAY THE WORD “MIDGET” ON TV

A group of activists is petitioning the FCC to ban the use of the word “midget” on broadcast television. The group Little People of America says the term is demeaning to little people. They literally want to make it a crime to use the word “midget.”

We just used the term “midget” in a post this week. Shame on us!

Speaking of demeaning midgets, I’m sure this story is somehow related. More details are coming out about the arrest of Gary Coleman’s wife last week. Shannon Price was booked on domestic battery charges in Utah. Radaronline.com has a clip of Coleman, the pint-sized former child star, complaining about the numerous fights Price started with him. Coleman says Price would not stop “pressuring” him to get her pregnant. (Even though it’s unconfirmed whether the two have ever actually had sex after two years of marriage.)

Meanwhile, Price complains that Coleman “fights like a five-year-old.” According to Price, Coleman’s throws “tantrums” when he fights. She says Coleman’s fighting tactics include “stomping on the floor, throwing things, and banging his own head into the wall.”
