Billy The Earl 2014 calendar

We had the 2014 Billy The Earl calendar up on the KXOA website for a couple of months. Billy never even noticed it. But then after it was taken down, a couple of his friends emailed him that someone at KXOA had photoshopped his head onto a picture of "a fat guy"...With a tear in my eye, I have to tell you that there was no photoshopping done to the above picture. That IS his head on top of HIS fat body. Sorry Billy. I guess the women won't be yelling "Take your shirt off, Billy!" anymore...
