Bean Belly Egged On

Bean Belly Smith

In 1879, Ross Woods got the last breakfast eggs at the Stratford Hotel restaurant in Shakespeare, New Mexico. This didn’t sit well with Bean Belly Smith, who was hungry and also suspicious that Ross was fooling around with Mrs. Bean Belly. The two argued and went for their guns. Woods missed; Bean Belly didn’t. You might say Woods egged him on.
