So by now you may be wondering, why the BUNG blog?? Well, there is a perfectly good explanation for this....and it all begins with the OBB, AKA the Original Bung Book. You see, the bung BLOG is a technological upgrade of the OBB, a Bung Book Version 2.0, if you will. So get settled in and comfy and I'll begin my lesson for the day: Bung Book History 101.
First of all, to understand what happened to the OBB, you gotta understand who the OBB was. Now the OBB was born to a three-legged bitch of a mother. He was always ashamed of this, man. Oh wait.....wrong story....
The Bung Book actually began as a notebook between 2 high school girls (Ashley AKA Ash-Hole, Holio and Melissa AKA Militia, Bung) in December, 1994. It began as a means for passing notes in high school....only way cooler notes than your run-of-the-mill high school notes. The Bung Book included features such as Top 10 Lists (David Letterman style) and pasted-on magazine clippings. The name "The Bung Book" can only be attributed to Beavis and Butthead...and of course, the Bunghole Monster himself.
As time went on, additional sections were added to the Bung Book, including the "memories list" to document years worth of notable memories, quotes, sayings, Ashleyisms, and Melissofied words. "Picture Notes" also became a significant part of the Bung Book. To grasp the concept of a picture note, picture in your mind one of the funniest moments in your life. Now, imagine an illustration of that moment. Did it just get funnier?
Circa 2000, a Bung Song was written and added to the book. A Bung Book Sequel was produced in 2002.
Though the original Bung Book will never die and will forever be a treasure, it has had a rough life and after 14+ years of being passed around and even traveling the country (Bung Trip, August 2000) it is beginning to fall apart and needs to be preserved so that it may be enjoyed for generations to come. Thus, the Bung Blog.
While the Bung Blog is still in the beginning stages, the future plans of the blog include:
**Uploading picture notes from the OBB
**Transferring the Memories List...and adding to it
**Adding new features to the bung, including but not limited to: Unbung Heros
So there you have it, the history of the BUNG. And now that you are up-to-speed, please stay tuned for the future of the BUNG - promised to bring even greater memories, more laughs, and a whole new level of bang off!
