Lucretia Rupp Wadkins, from the internet comic blog The Greasers of Hazzick Flats, a barmaid who works at Gobbie's Tavern, the most disreputable bar in town, and grandmother of Alex, Max and Orchid Smuckers and all the other Smuckers children. In the 70's when he's a teenager, another grandson, Felix Smuckers, gives her the '45 record "Lucretia McEvil" for her birthday. She's not thrilled about it and gives the record back to him, whereupon he plays the record on full blast whenever she comes over. His mother (Lucretia's daughter) yells at him to stop playing that record for Lu, because she might get mad and decide to quit helping them whenever they need a handout, and if that happens, his mother will "whup his worthless, good-for-nothing butt". http://www.thegreasersofhazzickflats.blogspot.com
