NewsBusters Shares a Laugh with 'Morning' Joe and Mika
ST. PAUL, Minn.-- The NewsBusters team caught up with "Morning Joe's" Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday, and had a nice discussion about how she got the nickname "Bubbles."
For those that have forgotten, last September, Mika mentioned, "I never had a writing section [on my SATs], just bubbles."
This led NB's Mark Finkelstein to nickname her "Bubbles."
As a result, when we bumped into Joe and Mika in what is called "Radio Row," Joe seemed very excited to see us, but Mika was, at the onset, decidedly less so (video embedded right):
Do you know how many people call me "Bubbles" thanks to you guys?
After being asked what the reference was, Mika said:
Because I talked about the bubbles on the SATs.
As you can see from the video, both Joe and Mika were very good sports, and we hope to be doing a much more thorough interview with the two of them later in the week.
