Bubba and Dorthy Zass
Dorthy and Bubba were 18 years old when they met in their woodshop class, and it was love at first screw…driver. They dated for a year when Bubba asked Dorthy to marry him at a Kenny Chesney concert. Soon after being married, they began on their determination to have 13 children after the 13 stripes on the American flag. They were in luck when their first-borns were actually twins, named Bobby-Jo and Bobby-Sue. Soon after, FayFay Jerry-Lee, Junior, Shaneyney, Woody, Dooby, Rufus, Bart, Odis, Buck, and Peggy were all born and Bubba and Dorthy had their huge family they had always dreamed of. Their love for coupons came through their drive to save money and support their huge family. They began by dumpster diving with their children every Sunday, using all 13 of them to search for the best new deals that were thrown away. Dorthy does most of the clipping, as she is a stay at home mom, while Bubba works at Dave Buck Tractor Factory.
Dorthy and Bubba were introduced to the internet world through their eldest daughters who were sick of spending their Sundays in the garbage. Soon after, Dorthy and Bubba realized they could expand their coupon kingdom by printing instant coupons from the Internet. They decided that since they were so good at saving money, they should share their thoughts and knowledge with others by throwing a coupon clipping party. They began planning their “Coupons for Dummies” party, supplied with plenty whiskey and coupons. They would teach all their friends on how be a “sooper coopon clipper”.
