June 2nd – National Bubba Day

Well if you like nicknames today ought to be one of your favorites, it’s National Bubba Day!. We almost all think of Bubba as some country boy, maybe a farmer, not as smart as the log he sits on. In truth, the only actual language that includes Bubba as an official title is Yiddish… it means ‘grandmother’. Sort of changes your image, doesn’t it!?! We probably use Bubba as a short for buddy, though it’s not any shorter. Sort of makes you wonder about characters such as Bubba Smith, the professional football defensive tackle who was once the terror of all quarterbacks! If they only knew he was named after a grandmother!

How to celebrate – Start calling your grandmother ‘Bubba”. Think twice about anyone you give the nickname Bubba to. Try to remember all the Bubba’s you’ve met in your life.
