God bless this big, weed-loving boy

This big, beautiful, weed-loving boy is named Young King Dave. About a month ago, he briefly became the toast of the town for the tersely delivered missive above that seemed to strike, despite all its specificity, some sort of universal human chord. Who among us has not strolled into the great outdoors, noticed how fuckin’ nice out it is, and sparked some loud?

And while Young King Dave is also a rapper, this monologue has since become his most popular track ever thanks to its repeated Auto-Tuning:

Anyway, the rap game moves quickly, as does social media, and Young King Dave knows he has to keep people talking. Recently he stepped things up with this frankly unforeseen visit to Amish country:
