Joe in Bugaha is a legendary Jungle e-mailer from Omaha, Nebraska. Since August 2007, he has signed most of his e-mails, "Joe in Bugaha, U.S. American" in response to 2007 Miss Teen South Carolina Caitlin Upton's garbled speech, which is a soundbyte often played by Rome. An Omaha resident, Joe is a fan of the Creighton Bluejays, as he graduate from college there. Joe also supports the University of Nebraska and frequently attends athletic events for both schools.
Joe has made a few unsuccessful attempts at calling, although his getting run on the phone has not affected his immense reputation on the e-mails.
He is a popular user on the de facto unofficial Jim Rome fansite, Stucknut, and typically communicates in their chat during the show.
