A to Z: The Bee's Knees She Ain't

Well, good morning, everyone! Welcome back to my humble abode, where by the end of the month, I hope to have you speaking in Twenties tongues.

In case you missed my original post about the Blogging from A to Z Challenge:

I now bring you the next installment of 1920s slang so you're hip to the jive by the time my 1920s novel Seven for a Secret come out. I will be the first to say that this one's rather mean, but it does appear in the book, so I'd be remiss not to help you translate:

~*~  BUG-EYED BETTY  ~*~
Meaning: An undesirable woman

"Fellas, just wait-n-see. 
I'm not the bug-eyed Betty I used to be."
