      All the black folk looking at each other when he said “ who eats Mac and cheese at thanksgiving “ in my mind has me cracking up.

      Real stuffing, real mashed potatoes, real green bean casserole.
      Marshmallow yams, fake breadrolls, gelatin salad.
      But I worked Thanksgiving and had lasagna. It was tasty.

      Mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese or more turkey, does turkey count? (best sides)

      Stuffing or green bean casserole or regular green beans (worst of all time, never ever serve that nasty stuff)

          Oh my god I've loved hot ones since the beginning and just found Brad like a month ago and been binging all his stuff so this is amazing to see.

                          I suspect that after all the shit Sean got for room temp milk he still keeps it that way just to fuck with the guests

                                  Please the next time you have him on. Because there should definitely be a next time. Please incorporate his funny editing style of his videos. The merge would be a masterpiece. Also. Any thoughts about wing Russian roulette
