“This printer is now called Bob Marley because it’s always jammin‘“

"This copier/printer/shredder is now called Bob Marley because it’s a;ways jammin’” is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on many images and posted on many printers. Bob Marley (1945-1981) $the Wailers released the song “Jamming” in 1977.

“Our copier’s like Bob Marley. It’s always jammin’” was posted on Twitter on July 14, 2007. “I call my printer at home ‘Bob Marley’ cos it’s always jammin’” was posted on Twitter on May 28, 2010.


Wikipedia: Jamming (song)
“Jamming” is a song by the reggae band Bob Marley & the Wailers from their 1977 album Exodus. The song also appears on the compilation album Legend. The song was re-released 10 years later as a tribute to Bob Marley and was again a hit, as in the Netherlands, where it was classified in the charts for 4 weeks. In Jamaican patois the word jamming refers to a getting together or celebration. It is still receiving moderate airplay from adult alternative stations.

Bob Marley’s wife Rita Marley has performed the song during the tribute concert “Marley Magic: Live In Central Park At Summerstage”.

You know those offices where on your first day, you get a tour from Carol the “zany” HR rep and she shows you the office printer, with a picture of Bob Marley’s face taped to it, and says, “We call the printer Bob Marley because it’s always jamming! We like to do things a little differently around here.”

Ms. Redman, a math teacher, gave more insight on the “gremlins” and said that the upstairs copy machine is called Bessie, and the downstairs name is Bob. “Bob is for Bob Marley, because it’s always jammin’, and Bessie because it’s like a cow and eats paper. It eats everything,” she said.
