It's bammer week. What's the best bammer fan story you have?
Must be a story that encapsulates all the bammerness and can be used to show others a perfect glimpse into the life of a typical gump.==============================
Several years ago in my earlier days of living in Michigan, I was on my way home from work. Part of that journey was travelling about 15 miles on a straight two lane road that went into the town where I lived. I got stuck behind this beat-up old 1970s era buick that looked like it was bought from the junkyard after it was demolished. Not long after I get behind this car, trash started coming out of the window. McDonalds bags, plastic Coke bottles, candy wrappers, burger wrappers, some unidentified food, empty beer cans and the best one of all, one shoe. This went on for about 10 of those 15 miles. I finally was able to pass this car and when I did, noticed the two passengers were a man and woman, both with mullets, both about 200+ lbs overweight, the female with several ear piercings (yes, I stared pretty hard as I was passing). And what to my wondering eyes did I see? A good 'ol scripted A on the guys shirt. And what was on the front of that car? A good 'ol scripted A plate that was hanging by one screw. I have no idea how they ended up in Michigan. But it shows that viruses do indeed spread far and wide.
That is the story I tell when my kids ask, "Daddy? What's a bammer?" Row Tahd!
