The SoBros Mailbag: 107th Edition – Stock Pick of 2020

 In Humor, The SoBros Mailbag

Let’s face it – every day we are routinely bombarded with questions. When you’re an emerging media company in Nashville, people just want to know what your opinions are on everything. It’s only natural. And, since our duty is to serve the people, well, we have no choice but to be present. That’s the SoBro Way. Also, aren’t mailbags just a barrel of laughs anyway? Welcome to the newest weekly recurring feature up in this bitch: The SoBros Mailbag. As always, use #SoBrosMailbag to hit us up on Twitter.

Question:

Answer:

E, I hate to be such a basic bitch, but I’m a big Alice In Chains guy. “Man In the Box” is probably one of my 10 favorite songs of all time. I wish I had a cooler, more “underground” answer. But, that’s just what’s in my soul.

Question:

Answer:

I always said 1984, but honestly, I just hadn’t stopped to think about this question in a long time. Running through all of the things I’ve read in recent years, I remember The Rum Diary really resonating with me. It’s a quick, light read, and I remember putting it down and thinking, “damn – that’s what it means to be a writer.” So, I’d actually probably say The Rum Diary today.

As for 90s fashion, I miss fanny packs. I wish they were more socially acceptable outside of the wrestling community. I hate having shit in my pockets.

Question:

Answer:

I think I have to phrase this in a certain way to avoid any sort of potential legal ramifications, so I’ll just put it like this…

I was big on Slack (WORK) before the pandemic. Excellent communication tool for companies that I thought would catch on as more and more companies figured it out. I started to buy in a little bit at a time as early as late last year. Then, when the COVID-19 shit started and everything tanked, Slack dipped down to around $15. I bought every bit of it that I could (who needs an annual bonus anyway?) – now, it’s sitting at $31.90 and I am a very happy man.

Also….now, I’m not sure that this is available to everyone….but Robinhood is offering fractional shares these days. That feature became available to me earlier in the week. I have a pretty strict budget for myself, so I took what “fun money” I had left over out of this recent paycheck and bought in. Now, I am the proud owner of 0.027931 shares of Amazon, who I believe will eventually own the entire planet.

Question:

Answer:

Patrick, I completely forgot about Gazoo, but I think your instincts are right. It doesn’t make sense. Maybe they were trying to be all meta with the stories about how the aliens supposedly visited ancient peoples on the planet (were people that smart in the 1960s?), but they could’ve done it in a way that wasn’t so insulting to aliens.

Gazoo is a caricature, and if I’m an alien, I’m fuckin’ pissed that Hanna-Barbera thought THAT is what an alien should act like. Those motherfuckers.

Keep the questions coming – catch y’all next week!
