There's a little fellow named Bubba who hangs out at Martin's Convenience Store. Mr. Martin, the owner hasn't figured out what Bubba's problem is, but the boys 'round town like to tease him. They say he's not hittin' on all eight... just not too bright.

As evidence, often they'll offer lil' Bubba his choice between a nickel and a dime. Now Bubba, he always takes the nickel... They say, because it's 'bigger' and they all get a big chuckle.

One afternoon, just after Bubba grabbed his nickel, Mr. Martin pulled him off to one side and said, "Bubba, those boys are making fun of you They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or what?"

Bubba sorta grinned and said, "Well, if I took the dime, reckon they'd quit doing it!"


Here is Blog Iran via Allah Is In The House via Acidman, who saved me a lot of trouble in re-doing my blogroll by blogrolling Allah himself. (Aside to Allah: You'll get more hits from Gut Rumbles. Be glad.)

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Chuck's Cup.
