When Flannery O’Connor was five she taught a chicken to walk backwards, and it was this that led to her first experience of being a celebrity. The Pathé News people filmed “Little Mary O’Connor” with her trained chicken, and showed the film around the country. She said, “That was the most exciting thing that ever happened to me. It’s all been downhill from there.”

    Remember that time.
    That four-year-old girl sang “Kokomo” to get a free beach towel at the shoe store?
    Yeah, I do too.

    If only that scene were on film for the world to partake. Look out little Miss Mary O’Connor.

    Alas. It exists only in our memories.
