“Uncleweed is a local cultural artefact and we should find ways to get him funded so he can keep on doing his schtick.”

The only tweet I managed during this session was “laughing too hard to type”. Uncleweed is a local cultural artefact and we should find ways to get him funded so he can keep on doing his schtick.

I did however jot down some of his quotes on Twitter and John Biehler snapped some photos so I’ll share those now.

“I came across a ticket that was $420 to Belize. I was like ‘BUY’ … I wonder where Belize is?”

“80% meditation, 10% execution, 10% inebriation.”
