For lots of people the word "weed" has a negative connotation.
However, for people with dreadlocks saying weed is a lot like saying bacon-wrapped bacon.
Remember that one Saturday Night Live skit? This rastafarian-type guy who runs a novelty shop and any time a customer brings an item to him and asks what it does he takes it and says "You put your weed in it." Doesn't matter what it is. You put your weed in it.
I think I was a teenager when that skit was showing. For that very reason I found the skit endlessly amusing.
But I'm older now. More mature.
I happen to be at a novelty shop looking at a strange item in the back of the store. It's kind of a wavy box thing with three handles and some leather strings that come out of holes on the side. Somebody glued marbles and what appears to be pencil shavings on the top. I have not idea what it's for. Where's that novelty shop owner when you need him?
Weeds . . . eh.
