Bubba Gone Awry....

The other day,  when we were out doing errands, we went into Target to look for a couple of items. Linda and I are big iced tea drinkers and we take a large cup of it with us wherever we go. Our large travel mug broke recently so we've been looking for a replacement....one that will fit in the car cupholder but that also holds a lot of tea. Found these Bubba Kegs while at Target. I am not a "pink" person....Linda B is. Wouldn't you know that only the pink ones were on sale...Yep, the utilitarian, versatile...goes with anything black ones were 10 bucks while the foo foo pink ones were half that. You can see what color won out. Somehow I don't think that Bubba had pink in his palette of colors when he came up with this line of cups, kegs, jugs, etc. It actually seems like an oxymoron to have "pink" and "Bubba" in the same sentence. There are about 12 different sizes of these bad boys. Cold drinks are supposed to stay cold for 12 hours and hot beverages are supposed to stay hot for 3 hours. I think this was the cruel work of some marketing woman trying to temper the image of a "mob reject" - Bubba to make him a kinder, gentler - in touch with his feminine side...guy. Hmmm....wonder if spray paint will stick to it ?

Hay Linda S. just consider the pink to be in support of breast cancer and the "color" will go down a lot better!
