The government demanded $44,694 in back taxes from a buxom barmaid today on grounds that it's entertainment when she balances beer on her bosom.
The barmaid is 29 year-old Ruthie Shepler, the generously endowed proprietress of "Ruthie's Lounge" and an ex-strip tease dancer.
Ruthie who favors tight black sweaters and dangling earrings likes to divert her customers with what she calls the "well-balanced glass of beer."
All she does is pour the beer into her customer's glasses while they're balanced on her frontage.

One year later Ruth was back in the news and ended up in mental institution for second degree murder.
