Bags and Bubba Q

Regular readers of Attention Span know that products are always better if they’re made by celebrities. At www.realmonicainc.com, you can buy the purses originally designed by Monica Lewinsky because she just couldn’t find the right bag to carry her knitting yarn. For instance, the Bali Bamboo Blue purse is $115 and, according to the hype, answers the question “Does the wind have a color?” Take a few seconds to ponder that one. OK, next in line is Bubba’s Q Spicy All-Purpose barbecue sauce ($2.99 per bottle). This is not just any ordinary Bubba, but Al “Bubba” Baker, the former Detroit Lion. Both the memories of Baker’s playing days and the sauce itself are quite pleasant.
