bumsmack question
« on: October 02, 2017, 01:55:30 pm »
Hey guys, I'm a new-ish listener to Rome, I'm listening to Friday's show via podcast and I'm listening to the bumsmack segment.  Hilarious stuff but one thing is confusing me, and Google searches hasn't helped.  Why does every bumsmack take start with "war"?  Like "war bums using taco shells as wallets"...why does everyone start the sentence with "war"?

"war" is a term that the clones adopted, based on auburns battlecry War Eagle.

callers would end their calls with various "Wars", or things they liked.

Rome and Trodge went to see Alabama v Auburn one year and they were wondering why everyone was saying war eagle. Then like Steef said, clones started warring different things and it snowballed from there.

You know, I was always wondering how bum smack started.  I just assumed since Silk was the resident Jungle "bum" most bum smack was just aimed at him and sort of grew a life of it's own.  BP in H-Town needs a Jungle plaque or something to honor one of the greatest running gags ever created on the show.

BP was a regular caller to the show from Houston but was originally from So Cal and he was in LA to go to a USC game, and he called the show to say how great it was to be back in town with all the silicone enhanced skanks and bums from the Santa Monica boardwalk. Then not too long after someone else called in and said how the sandwich joint he gets lunch at every day puts tons of peopers on their sandwiches, and that he'd take the peppers off and give them to this bum he saw every day. That same day I believe, somebody ended their email with "war peppers for bums", the very first bum war. This was circa 2009 I believe. And bum smack was born.
