Just when I thought we had escaped into a Bubba-The-Love-Sponge free zone, Bubba shows up again, making a gratuitous guest appearance in the David Petraeus sex scandal.
Upon contemplation, it does seem as if this Petraeus sex scandal is a sort of black hole that sucks in every single small sex scandal around it, and grows and grows and expands and expands until…
Boom. From today’s Daily News (where else?):
The Tampa Bay Times reported that [Jill] Kelley reached out to [Tampa mayor Bob] Buckhorn via email earlier this year when a local shock jock named Bubba the Love Sponge Clem threatened to burn a Koran.
“This Bubba the Love Sponge is a complete moron,” Buckhorn emailed back.
Bubba, best known for taping his ex-wife having sex with his ex-friend Hulk Hogan, took revenge on Kelley on Friday by driving a van around her mansion blaring a parody of the 1985 Falco hit “Rock Me Amadeus” that replaced the composer’s name with Petraeus.
When Kelley began getting threatening emails, she turned to FBI Agent Frederick Humphries, who once sent her a humorous photo of himself posing shirtless with two look-alike target practice dummies.
Humphries, who lives outside of Tampa in rural Dover, has refused to talk about his role in the fast-moving scandal.
Never fear, Shirtless (but not particularly oomphy) Agent Humphries! Bubba the Love Sponge will probably do all the talking for you. And everybody else.
And have you noticed how every weird sex scandal seems to be concentrated in Florida?
