Pink Flamingos

Divine, also known as Babs Johnson, is a 300 lb drag queen of grotesque proportions who holds the title 'the filthiest person in the world'. Vying for the title are Connie and Raymond Marble, who kidnap girls, impregnate them, and sell the children to lesbian couples in order to finance 'an inner city heroin ring' catering to high school students.

Divine, also known as Babs Johnson, is a 300 lb drag queen of grotesque proportions who holds the title ‘the filthiest person in the world’. Vying for the title are Connie and Raymond Marble, who kidnap girls, impregnate them, and sell the children to lesbian couples in order to finance ‘an inner city heroin ring’ catering to high school students.

Around the above premise spins the nitwit plot of the poorly lensed 16mm picture Pink Flamingos – one of the most vile, stupid and repulsive films ever made.

Divine’s Mama Edie, a huge mountain of adipose tissue, inhabits a playpen in the mobile home and performs coprophagy on the fresh product of a miniature poodle while ‘How Much Is That Doggie in the Window’ toodles on the soundtrack.
