Soon after Jonathan Nichols enrolled in law school at Seattle University, he started getting offers for backstage passes, calls from luxury-car dealerships, and raunchy texts from strangers. "There were some girls in really short shorts and skimpy tops, obviously turned around showing their butts. And they'd say 'I know you love us: because we got a big butt,'" Nichols says.
No, the messages weren't inspired by Nichols' attendance at Seattle's second-best law school. It turns out Nichols had purchased a new phone, with a local number, when he moved to Seattle. That number had previously belong to Sir Mix-A-Lot, the Seattle rapper best known for the 1992 hit "Baby Got Back."
