U. Alabama Alums Seek Nickname Change from ‘Bama to ‘Bamma

U. Alabama Alums Seek Nickname Change from ‘Bama to ‘Bamma

A Petition has been circulating among Alumni of the University of Alabama to change the popular ‘Bama nickname to ‘Bamma due to conflicts that are arising from having a President named Obama.

The reason for this requested change, as set forth in the petition, is that the name ‘Bama when mis-pronounced by most as Bah-mah, sounds too similar to Obama. ‘Bamma, on the other hand, causes no confusion as the double ‘m’ in the middle forces people to pronounce the nickname correctly and as intended, i.e. Baa-ma.

“We don’t have any problem with the sitting President, per se,” said Lou Neebins, the author and promoter of the change. “But a bunch of us were sitting around one night after a game and every time someone said the name ‘Bama, well, I’d bristle. Not to be petty or anything, but when you don’t agree with a man’s politics but are forced to listen to his name, or a substantial part of his name at least, over and over again, well, it starts to grate on your nerves. And then there are the Alumni newsletters with ‘Bama printed practically in every paragraph. It just looks too much like Obama to a lot of us and let’s face it, we don’t need it in our faces day in and day out.

Said Neebins, “at least with ‘Bamma, we can get back to the business of cheering on our favorite sports teams without visions of a Democrat, an extremely liberal Democrat at that, dancing in our heads, and that’s all we’re trying to accomplish.

“Hell, as far as we know, President Obama would probably want to sign the petition as well just so he doesn’t have to go through too many more press conferences being asked questions about the latest win or loss at the University of Alabama and having to come up with an answer on the fly.”

    You don’t even know what “extremely Liberal” means, you moron.

    Hi Joe,
    Is that pronounced Moe Ron, or More on?

  3. BobZaguy says:

    Moe, Schmoe. Whatever…

    And what a silly point to bring up in a satirically written put down of Alabama’s endearing name of ‘bama. Everyone knows that 4-syllable words below the Mason-Dixon line are a no-no — 2 being the top limit, syllabically speaking.
