Bubba Wants to get Married

Bubba from the lower valley decided he wanted to get married, and brought up the subject with his Ma and Pa over grits and gravy the other night.

“Bubba,” Ma said, “you can’t get married yet. Why, you’re the baby of the family.”

“But Ma,” Bubba protested, “I had my 38th birthday jest last week.”

“We know that, Bubba,” Pa chimed in. “But your Ma and me think you should put off getting married until after you graduate from high school.”
