From the old head
point of view...a bama bamma?
originally meant someone
who is patently country -- like
from Alabama. Someone
country, talks country, walks country, drives a country-ass ride, someone
you would see in the dictionary beside the word "bama". This person would be totally unaware
of and oblivious
to his or her classification as such. People could be laughing
at a bama right up in his or her face and the bama wouldn't have a clue. In later years its meaning has expanded to include anyone/anything that
of the current
level of acceptability. From the old head/old
school point of view "bamma" is a misspelling of the term. It should be spelled "bama" -- as in short for Alabama.
