Anchorman Bubba

My family and I went to the CNN studios in Atlanta for a grand tour of the place.  It was pretty interesting.  My nine-year-old son, Bubba, thought the cameras were really cool. So when the tour guide asked for a volunteer to come up and be an anchorman, my son raised his hand right away.  And of course, because he's a cute kid, he got picked.

He marched up and parked himself at the big desk.  The tour guide operated the teleprompter while the cameras rolled.  He read his script like a real professional.  Then came the end - the part where the anchorman gives his name.

Bubba, with a huge grin on his face, said, "This has been, Insert Name Here, reporting for CNN news."

Everybody cracked up. It was so funny!

So ladies and gentlemen, in about twenty years, if you're watching CNN news and you see a young man reporting as, Insert Name Here, you'll know it's my boy.

  9. Sounds like Bubba is quite the little comedian... and already comfortable with a camera and teleprompter. Heck, some day he could be President Insert Name Here!

    1. If he spins stories, I'm sure they'll be far more interesting than the ones that are currently on!
