Comes forward to claim oldest woman alive award
Thursday (LITC) A woman claiming to be Amelia Earhart has come forward in Atchison, Kansas and is claiming to not only be the famous aviator, but as such the oldest woman in the world.
Leave it to Cleaver Press has uncovered the startling fact that aviator Amelia Earhart did not die in the South Pacific as is sometimes hypothesized, but rather became homesick and return to the city of her birth.
“I just got homesick,” the claimant has stated. “I didn’t realize it would create so much controversy, and so rather than deal with that, I just stayed put. No one was looking for me in Kansas. No on ever looks for anything in Kansas, except basketball players.”
When asked as to why she is coming forward now, the woman answered, “I read a newspaper article that named the oldest woman. She’s a youngster compared to me. I was born July 24, 1897. She (Jeralean Talley), was born May 23, 1899. And the oldest person (Jiremon Kimura) only has 2 months on me. I just want to win one more thing before I fly into the great unknown.”
When asked for comments both Jeralean and Jiremon said if this is true, Amelia should change her name to Jamelia fit the present alphabetical scheme.
