QUESTION 3
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Southerners, you guys gave each other nicknames. Why did you call Arthur, "Bubba?"

LOUIS McDUFFIE:

Well, I, I guess it's just a southern tradition, whatever, that, ah--

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Try and start by putting my question into your answer like, well, you know, "The southern tradition, you get a nickname, so we called him Bubba, you know just as a nickname."

LOUIS McDUFFIE:

Well, like I was. It's a, it's a southern tradition, you know, to, for everybody pretty much to have a nickname and, ah, we thought Bubba was a good one for him. And, ah, of course mine was Big Boy and, ah, the, I hope I'm doing OK. You just got me a little, I'm just a little nervous here.

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Well, let's stop for a second.

LOUIS McDUFFIE:

OK.



MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Give me again that story about southern nicknames and Bubba. Why did you call him Bubba?

LOUIS McDUFFIE:

Well, it's, if I can remember, ah, almost all southern kids or whatever even their mothers and fathers whatever they had like nicknames and it was just a, pretty much a southern tradition. And, ah, we came up with the nickname Bubba for Arthur and, ah, it just seemed to fit him well, very good. And, ah, that's the one we gave him.
