Parenting ain’t easy, and more to the point, putting up with other parents can be even more difficult. That’s especially been the case with the Delta variant taking over, and that’s turned already contentious school board meetings into ground central for the anti-mask-and-anti-vax crowd to vent their rage. This wasn’t the exact reason for a Texas Christian woman recently making a weird speech about never putting anything in her butt, but there’s no logical reason for that happening, either, so it’s just safe to say that there’s (collectively) a whole lot of crazy going on in school-board meetings.
On MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, Brian Williams played a montage of the wildest right-wingers who’ve taken over the school-board meeting discourse lately, and hoo boy. He capped the whole mess off with the now-notorious Matt Baker, a dreadlocked California right-winger from Ocean Beach, who took over a San Diego Board of Supervisors to shout about Nazis, accuse Fauci of being pure evil, and yell about how “your children and your children’s children will be subjugated.”
It’s a wonder that Matt Baker can even calm down and sleep at night, but Williams had a zinger for him that ran along the lines of Steve Martin’s “Ah yes, I remember my first beer.” Here’s Williams’ variant: “Perhaps you remember your first edible.”
"Perhaps you remember your first edible."

Well, people were caught off guard by the deadpan remark, which caused some Twitter double-takes and laughter emoji aplenty.
Did Brian Williams just say "perhaps you remember your first edible" or have I been working for too many hours today?

Dear Neighbors: I truly apologize. I was listening to the @11thHour rebroadcast and when Brian Williams deadpanned "perhaps you remember *your* first edible," apparently I hollered so loud I woke your dog up. Really sorry about that.

Of course, one of the funnier aspects of the remark involves Williams misstating the effects of gummies. Matt Baker probably could actually use a gummy to wind down?
My edibles don't usually lead to insane rage rants… I wonder what this dude was actually snorting?

I can confirm that edibles do not cause this! That's pure ignorance.

I love it. Although as someone who has had a lot of edibles they’ve never once made me unhinged. This dude must be sniffing glue or something.

Had a couple of edibles last night- kicked back & chilled on the couch- so I know edibles.
Edibles are friends of mine.
That sir- is no edible rant!

Williams had to have known what he was doing here. Well played.
