I’m sorry, but I would be seriously remiss in my duties as this blog’s proprietor if I didn’t share this special moment with you all.
Do your best (worst?) in the comments.
Filed under Whoa, oh, Alabama
TMZ Headline: Is Mama June cheeting on Sugar Bear? See her at this photo op in Tuscaloosa.
Funny, yea, but I sure wish this was a tech blog making fun of the dawgs and our low hanging fruit…
Deryl, Deryl and Larry go to the store to buy some Dr. Pepper
On one hand, this is the reason we poke fun at Alabama – no other state can boast of a fanbase with such rubes. On the other hand, the reason that Bama is so successful is that these rubes live their lives for this team. Arguably, no other program brings as much pride to a state as Bama football because they have little else to enjoy.
I’ll think up a caption…just as soon as I can stop laughing.
How about this: “Gawllee! That diamond is gotta be the biiiggestest one in all of Alabama!!!! How do they get it on a wrang???
Woooo-weeee. Betty, run back to Household and find one of those. I believe I can make that into a lamp.
Chilli for the win!
Bama fans celebrate the Tide’s 42nd National Championship
Look Ma, a football shaped diamond.
Saban finds his next NG to replace Mt. Cody and another good DE but I think the other one will have to redshirt before he’ll see the field.
I believe you meant greyshirt, Jason.

Ricky Tidwell’s mama’s gonna play football….
Harvey Updyke couldn’t make it to the photo opp with the fam, he was a little busy.
I think I could eat it…or birth it.
Is Orson Charles hanging around anywhere close by?
you beat me to it – I was going to say that two Bama fans ate Orson Charles while waiting in line to view the NC trophy.
Yes. He and the Bama team are standing right behind…….
Dr Pepper, it’s not for women ….and at least not for one guy.
Dr. Pepper…just what the Nephrologist ordered!
Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper, too?
That’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything?
Well done sir
We can’t beat you on the field but that won’t stop us from making fun of your fans.
That’s the spirit!
“We make Lulu and Junior look like they just stepped out of Vogue and GQ.”
Beat me by one minute.
No doubt this is Alabama’s answer to Lulu and Junior.
We drank a Dr. Pepper this year for every Alabama victory… Evarrr!
Premiering next season’s cast of villains in “Justified”….
Maybe the cast of “The Biggest Loser.”
“Ay Mama, how’d they know your dress size?”
“Oh Billy Bob, you’re such a gentleman. I ain’t been a size 42 since my senior year at Greene County Middle.
I’m thinking Halloween Ma…sprinkle some of that “Twilight” Vampire makeup on and you can pull it off!
Jack Spratt could eat no fat, his wife (and son) could eat no lean…
Imma gonna eatcha!!
Git in mah belly!!!
Big fan of the hot pockets on aisle 4….
Is that a two for one Dr Pepper special behind that National Championship trophy?
1) I don’t get why y’all think this is funny.
2) How did y’all get this picture of me and my kin?
Good sport as always, sir.
Those are my in-laws BD. We must be related.
So you’re the Dude in the middle? ;-)
And on aisle 42, we have the Mama and the Papas tribute band sangin’ their hit, Alabama Dreamin’.
Since Bama folk consider themselves the sophisticates of their state, I’d suggest this on their behalf:
“Three Barners pose as Alabama fans to get as close as they will ever again get to the Crystal Trophy.”
Bryant-Denny should have suggested this one! Good stuff!
And in the center is an Auburn cheerleader.
Congratulations- winners of the Dr. Pepper combined I.Q. contest! 42!!!
We ah here to t’see the Doctor ’bout our diabetus. Ohhh lookee here Carl, dey got uh family size meth pipe dat look like a footbawl. Dis da best minute clinic eveh.
Three proud University of Alabama graduates wonder why all the other fans are so focused on crystal footballs instead of academics.
A touching moment for Kenny Stabler and family….
Saban: “OK, so do one of you take this, um, woman to be your wife? Hurry up dammit. I don’t have time for this $h*%.”
“We stopped by for some Krystals and all we see here is this funny lookin’ footbawl.”
Hey, no fair we don’t ever get a chance to make fun of y’all. You don’t ever win a national championship.
Maybe we can see some townies posing with it by the Grill next year…
They’d be doing it ironically, of course.
And not before noon.
Three more winners of the “I came to Miami to get tackled by Manti T’eo and all I got was this lousy crystal ball” T-shirt contest…
You’re all real heroes for anonymously making fun of strangers for being overweight and appearing poor. Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your moral lecture. God will still punish you the same for taking his name in vain though.
You’re welcome for the lecture, friend. I’ll take my chances with the Almighty.
Maybe I missed something. Is the “humor” coming from something other than their weight or apparent lack of money? Oh, I noticed that some of you don’t think they are as smart as you are; intelligence being one of those things that is really easy to determine from a picture.
Look at this outside of the context of the internet, and you might see my side of the argument. If a bunch of lawyers, accountants, and other professionals were at a table next to yours at a restaurant and you overheard them gleefully mocking the busboy for being overweight, or for having shitty shoes, what would your reaction be? Maybe you’d join in on the fun, but I hope most people would think, “Boy, what a bunch of assholes.”
The only difference is that in my hypothetical, the busboy probably wouldn’t hear the comments, whereas the ‘Bama fans pictured above will probably be forwarded at least some of the links of everyone taking such joy in mocking their station in life.
As usual, when someone expends this much energy typing out an anonymous internet rant, you’ve missed the point entirely. But hey, at least you feel better about yourself now. That’s the goal, right?
What was the point that I “missed entirely?”
Well, speaking only for myself, I don’t think the picture is funny because of “their weight or apparent lack of money” or any of the other straw men you knitted together. Truth be told, I’m quite a portly fellow myself, and no one would ever accuse me of being rich. No, the funny part to me is that these people stood in a line for hours to have their picture taken with a trophy. I can’t fathom that. It is funny to me. If you can’t understand that, then sue me. And by the way, the fact that they just happened to appear at this big event wearing the same clothes they wore to bed doesn’t indicate a lack of money. It indicates a lack of judgement – which is also mock-worthy in my book. I’ll let others speak for themselves, but that is the point you “missed entirely” about my reaction.
Ouch! Thanks for that hhg. These people aren’t “public figures” and don’t deserve to be hurt. I considered not posting for the same reasons, but did it anyhow. You’re a better man than me.
These are just regular folks, I like doing this more when it’s a coach or someone who has thrust themselves into the limelight or a controversy. We’ve all got our fans who might embarass other fans and we’ve all got different ideas as to who that might be.
I feel ya, Brandon. :)
So Bama is up to 42 National Championships now?
Saw that the Senator posted this under the file: “Whoa, oh, Alabama”, to elicit an anti-Alabama response of jest, however, many responses didn’t follow that theme, including mine. Shit!
from left to right
Thin, thicker, thickest!
They look like nice people getting their picture taken with the trophy the team they root for won. It’s kind of funny, but I’d sure feel bad if they stopped by this blog with all the mean comments.
Just read through ALL the comments was glad I wasn’t the only moralizing nannybob on here…just the biggest. ;)
