    White People Question:

    • From @konversations.with.glo on Tiktok: “Why didn’t you vote for Trump?”
    • Have a “Stupid White People Question” you want to leave us?
    Post Show Info:
    • When Thugnificent berates Macktastic about his “hoes” being late, Mack replies that “Quinton just texted me. He say the Hoes is en route” His response is a reference to The Pharcyde skit/song Quinton’s on his Way on which The Pharcyde crew calls up Quinton, their weed man. 
    • When Riley asks Thugnificent to join the Lethal Interjection crew he says, “If this rap shit don’t work we go and…”, like 50 Cent does in his song “Your Life’s On The Line” from his 1999 album, Power of the Dollar.
    • Granddad states that he fought a guy named Deebo, without a gun that he possessed, and Riley states that it was from the film “Friday.” Granddad’s voice actor, John Witherspoon, had played the father of Craig, the person who fought Deebo, in the movie “Friday.”
    • When Ed Wuncler III plans on torturing the child he kidnapped, another reference is made to his spoofing of George W. Bush when he says “Don’t swear to God! I talk to God all the time and he’s the one who told me to torture yo’ ass, you lyin’, stealin’ muthafucka!” Ed kidnapping and torturing the wrong kid instead of Butch Magnus is likely yet another reference to the Iraq War in relation to the 9/11 attacks and the War On Terror, as well as referencing the Bush Administration’s eagerness to torture accused terrorists in detention camps such as Guantanamo Bay.
