A tribute to Bubba Two Bubbas, one short and one tall, get a contract to paint a flagpole. While trying to compute the area, so they'll know how much paint to buy, the short Bubba stands on the tall Bubba shoulders and stretches to reach the top to compute the height. His reach is short by several inches. So, the taller Bubba says maybe if they switch positions, because he's taller maybe he can touch the top. They switch positions and naturally he can't touch the top, either. While sitting, pondering another approach to computing the area, a weightlifter comes by. The two Buubas explain their problem. The weightlifter goes over, wrestles the flagpole out of its socket, lays it down, measures it from bottom to top, gives them the figure, then manhandles the flagpole back into its cement socket and walks off. Tall Bubba looks at the Short Bubba, then says, "If that isn't just like a stupid weighlifter. You ask him the height and he gives you the length. ------- You might be a Bubba if... 1.
