Bickford Warner, a.k.a. Kid Blue, is a bumbling outlaw who wants to move to the "big city" to retire from his life of crime. Arriving in the tiny town of Dime Box, Texas, he begins a series of routine jobs; cleaning spittoons, sweeping out a barbershop, slaughtering chickens, and shoveling coal into the huge kiln at the town's only factory, the Great American Ceramic Novelty Company, which manufactures the sort of cheesy ashtray sold at tourist traps in places like Atlantic City. It's not easy to blend in. The Sheriff is on his case, berating him and calling him white trash. But then again, maybe "blending in" isn't possible in this town of eccentrics, including a married man who rhapsodizes about male companionship and the Greeks, and a fire-and-brimstone preacher who is building an "aero-cycle" (a bicycle with wings) and praises the Lord for his gifts of peyote, hemp and alcohol. Eventually, though, Bickford is drawn back to a life of crime...
