Something just struck me as funny!

I don't know if it's the gray, dreary day or that I've just about had my fill of all the mud-slinging political ads on television, but I caught a piece of TV ad that hit my funny bone in the right place.

The ad was for an area law office - ambulance chaser-type - and was spouting how wonderfully they could handle your case and get you "all the money you deserve."

The thing that knocked me out of my chair was the name of the firm - Bubba Muse & Associates. I dunno, I have a hard time saying I'm going to have my lawyer "Bubba" contact you. I can't wrap my brain around that one. I'm still laughing.

I suspect this guy Bubba is one of our former presidents practicing law under an alias.

I'll jump in - let's not take this thread to a political level.

I have a friend who has a designated - what he calls - "Hollywood" room - filled with signed photos and a BUNCH of other stuff - another friend took that theme (best southern accent here) - and "has him a Bubba room" - bar, keg, etc. BUT, it's really cool, he set up a woodworking shop in his basement (quite expensive at best) and handmade his huge mahogony panels! In spite of the term "bubba" it's a beautiful room.

Do you think he uses that obvious nick-name so people will think he's just a "regular" guy?

Bob Loblaw
