Learn (and laugh) a lot from this parody bio video of Babe Didrikson Zaharias

By Alex Myers

When you just examine the golf accomplishments (82 wins, including 14 in a row at one point and 10 majors) of multi-sport female star Babe Didrikson Zaharias, you get the feeling there's not enough coverage of her remarkable career. But on Tuesday night, her amazing story was told to the masses on. . . Comedy Central?

Yep, the cable network tackled Babe's story of being a pioneer in women's golf during an episode of the parody show "Drunk History." Here's the hilarious clip that actually teaches viewers a fair amount of Zaharias history, from her prolific winning, to her relationship with fellow golfer Betty Dodd, to helping found the LPGA. "L stands for Ladies. It's pretty genius."

Great job by Emily Deschanel (co-star of "Bones") in the video, although we're pretty sure the real Babe had a better golf swing. . .
