That's a lot of good stuff. This conversations a lot of good stuff. Let's hop on into it with Chrissy and Anthony. And for someone who's not familiar with social lasts, let's hear your elevator pitch. So social lasts is in entertainment, Trivia Card game. We we are focused on providing trend sitting, trend setting entertainment. We started back in two thousand and seventeen what our first game called Password to the hood, and that game is based primarily on black culture. So you'll see elements of rap hip hop, you'll see some politics and sports and entertainment as well. So that's not a company. Initially started we wanted to put out a TRIBUTA card game, so we came out with a long list of names to potentially name the game and then we set them on pass quo too, hood, and then we came up with a name, social lab. So good deal. What were some of the other names that you you workshopped anymore? I can't tell you, man. They probably were jenking. What's he had an idea about hood. Maybe we just get playing around, but I don't know exactly. Then get like hood was probably kind of like to stay, or we were like take it to the hood because we're doing yeah, probably delete it to facts. I think I had them like a Nix Cel phile, so it's probably going I could. Why A card game? Why? Why was that the the route you went with? Because I think this is a super interesting and needed concept. But was...

...was it always that you wanted to do a card game, or did you kind of think about some other ways to maybe get a game like this together. So No, it the car game was pretty much the initial plan. So, and I say this on every podcast, I'm like what I would call myself a serial entrepreneur. So, you know, I'll just be ramly walking, I'll wake up and I have an idea. So if I think is worth while, you know, following up on the Alice, you know, you know, throw that the wall and see the stick. So, like I said, the idea for the car game first came first and then before I even invested a lot of time, I said, Hey, man, you know, this isn't going to work unless I have a real catchy name that can sell itself. So that's how I started, you know, just a dream. I woke up, Oh, you know, on a card game and focus don't get a name. And as we thought more about it, I mean like, you know card games or something that I think there's staples that everyone has in their household. Is always like maybe one or three games that every household has. So whenever you have like a kick back or holiday time and you have friends and family over, you know everybody's always going to want to play something to just kind of keep entertainment and things flowing. So we knew that that was something that was a possibility for us to tap into you and we knew that we had a good opportunity of like really taking on some of that market based off of the product that we had, because we knew it was going to be catchy. Once he came up with the idea of the name, we knew he had something absolutely and I also thank you for keeping the rules not to complex. I nothing, I think, is more frustrating than opening up a card Gamer aboard game and it's like, you know, a full like booklet of rules that you have to yeah, I'm just like, let's hearyous. A lot of times when we play, nine times out of ten there's some kind of alcoholic beverages flowing in the room with adults. Make sure it's a dolt M of course. You know you don't want, you don't have time to read through all of these instructions exactly. So can you kind of take us through? Then you have the idea from taking the idea and turning that into a card Gat. What was that process like? So the the process really started with coming up with enough content. So we try to turn out or produce as many questions as we could. So you might have had over full and four hundred, four hundred, five hundred plus questions. And then we said, okay, well, we need like, you know, a hundred, you know, questions for the first game, right. So we just kept on doing process elimination. You know, is this good enough for the first product? Is is good enough for the first game? And then once we felt like we had a good number of good number of questions, then I actually started doing the research in terms of, you know, finding a manufacturer and pretty the printed games and and I'm pretty good and Photoshop. So started working on the design work and things in that nature. So that's how it all started. Fantastic, fantastic. Did you again? Did you? Did you have like several different kind of prototypes you went through with the design, because I think, I mean, first of all, I'm very impressed by anyone that's good at at Photoshop. So already already I'm just like it's nice, but yeah, walks through that now then what they did back in two thousand and seventeen when we first launched him. So initially had a lot of Anthony's original like artwork at things that he learned how to do and Photoshop. And then, as the years went on, we started actually Oh, we took pictures. So, if you notice on the boxes, those are actual houses or those are actual apartment complex. Has Some in Charleston and what was the other two? In Charlotte, right, yeah, where we decided to actually go into neighborhoods and take actual photos of homes. Yeah, so we kind of yeah, we...

...stepped it up a notch, definitely from our knidge original artwork. It was very basic in the beginning. Are the the people who live in those homes? Are they like your biggest supporters? Then are they promoting it? They're like, Hey, this is this is our house, which is they probably wouldn't even yeah, they wouldn't know. They wouldn't pick up on it. Didn't even know. Okay, okay, what bad? And Yeah, once you take yeah, we put it's kind of put a layer of color, color over the yeah, okay, okay, yeah, good. It could be secretly famous. I like it. Obviously, two thousand and twenty. Well, well, different than the last year's with the pandemic going on, and you mentioned like family gatherings, things like that. We're in a lot of states. That's kind of been like hey, let's not do that, let's hold off on that for a little bit. So how have you continued marketing the game in a time when getting together with P pull is not an easy, err as easy as it normally might be? Yeah, to be honest, our games, they really taken off during the pandemic. I mean we were already doing well, but we started seeing uptick in ourselves early March and in the beginning, and Anthony couldn't really figure out what was happening because it was kind of like our Christmas cells were coming in. You know, holiday time will normally see it up ticking cells. But what we noticed is a lot of people started playing our games virtually. You're using zoom, they're using hangouts there. I guess some of those other platforms that people use are for virtual purposes, but a lot of people are starting to play our games virtually. We even had someone from a corporation. They tagged us they were playing our game within their employee resource group. It was a group of women and they were playing our passport to the Hood, volume to the trap addition. So we were just like Oh wow, that's so cool, you know, just to actually see these women playing and there in the work setting. So I just think that people, for we're just looking for opportunities to do something different, you know, to try to how do we engage you? You know we're all working from home. How do we still have people engage and have a good time and try to like take a moment, take a step back and not think about everything that's happening in two thousand and twenty, because we know it's been rough. So it's definitely been awesome to try to bring some laughter into people work settings, on zoom calls and just within people's families in general during the pandemic. Yeah, I think that speaks to the resiliency to of the the gaming community as a whole. is like, if it's a good game, like you'll find a way to play. You will. It's not a hundred percent the way it was designed to be, like they'll make it happen. Sure, you've been in business now since two thousand and seventeen. What something that's surprised you about running a business? You know, so initially, whenever we started the game in two thousand and seventeen, we didn't have our face attached to it at all. Social Labs, we were selling games solely based off of the name and not having a face with it. So not saying that I was, quote unquote, surprised, but I was impressed with how well the game was selling without us like really doing a lot of marketing and pushing it out there. You know, we really didn't put a lot of marketing dollars into it in the beginning. We just wanted to test it out and truly see how was the name going to work, you know, or people going to be captured by the name and want to like just jump on board and purchase, and honestly they did. You know, people, they are infatuated, I think, with urban culture or, I think, the Word Hood. I think it was just some people say, what is this about, and it just made them want to click on it and like purchase the game. So I think a part of that I was kind of surprised about that. How will we did without even having our name attached to it and without having to really truly push it on our individual side. Fantastic. And for people listening who maybe haven't checked out the Games yet, can you give us kind of a quick quick walk through of...

...of each game? Password to the Hood and volume one, two and three. They all cover, you know, things black culture. So you see elements of some of the same questions throughout each game. But Password to the hood volume two is trap addition. So you'll see more material there that is more related to, you know, things that you would experience in a trap and the trap house, like some type of drug activity or things that might occur to you if you happen to get in trouble while being in the trap house, by getting locked up and are going to jail. So you see things that nature. For that Virgin for past. Put to the hood volume three feds watching. You'll see a lot of material that's more still related to police activity, being engaged with the with the feds, like being watched by the feds. See, you'll see a lot of material there. So the categories in the game or of course you know trap, you have fed watch and you have history, lifestyle, entertainment. So we tried to cover it a whole spectrum. So like things that you will see in movies, TV shows, just current events, you will see that stuff throughout the game and our other two games that we produced. Story of my life. So the story of my life is a trivia game for women. And that game came about one day whenever I was at work, a lady complimented me on my hair and when she was complimenting me on my hair, she reaches out and she grabs my braves, and that is like a huge stereotype. Everyone knows you never touch your black woman's hair, and so I was so upset. I come home and I'm like, I can't believe like she grabbed, she touched my hair, like she could have just said it was nice. I why she touched my hair, and so I was like, you know what, I'm gonna make a game about this. And so initially I started thinking of what are like the weird awkward moments that black women have, and then so, as you start coming up with content and thinking about it more, I'm like, well, no, I want to do this for all women, because we all have our awkward moment. So, you know, story of my life is just something that all women should be able to relate to. We're going to talk about your co worker that you can't stand, or the boss that you just wish would go away, or what girlfriend don't you take advice from? You know, the one always wants to give advice but she never takes her own or just dating like random dating story. So that's really what that game involves in. Our latest game is called Celeb said, so that is quotes of the rich and famous. This one talks about, you know, all pop culture, anything you've heard of, celebrity say. Everyone knows Kanye. He has some pretty memorable moments where you said some crazy quotes. So we have a lot. We have Kanye in there, Kevin Hart, we have as a slavis debating, while I drawing a blink on his name right now. Yeeah, Arnold Schwartzenegger. So just a lot of catchy phrases that you made here on a movie you may have just seen on TV or celebrity and rapper someone has said. So you know something in our household we always do any time we have an opportunity to like crack a joke about something, will do it if we can like make it a joke where we quote a movie or something. So we just thought that that was something pretty cool that we could really bring to people's households. It's funny you mentioned Arnold Schwartzenegger because the last time we were playing he came up Vista. Maybe came up. It was misattributed. The person did not know who it was. To be fair, because my girlfriend's sister who's eighteen, so maybe maybe arnold is a little before her time, but she was like, I don't even know who that is at all. Like my mind. We had to stop. So I had to live the room and I come up. You bring that up, because one thing that me and Anthony noticed when you play with people, it depends on their generation, like what people are going to say for certain things. So like a lot of the majority rules that we...

...have in our card games depending on the a dreams. You know, you'll have people fighting all day about who's the better basketball player. Is it Jordan or is it Lebron, or who's the better rb group, you know. So that's one thing that we love because it brings like a little banter back and forth between the Group of friends that may be playing, depending on the age drained. Absolutely. Okay, I have I have a right one other follow up question of that, but before I forget, I saw this question today and when you mentioned basketball, I have to see if you have a good answer for this. Is there an NBA player that you always forget about and then the season starts and you're like, oh, yeah, they're still in the NBA, not here. Well, not that I forget about them, I think I forget what team they're on if everyone's going, because they're always getting traded here. So I say something. I'll say something like wait, I thought he was I thought he was like on on the warriors, and he's like day, he's been gone from there like two years. Like I could confuse like if I were, if I like you and at the time, if you were like really balling out, that's the team I want to remember you on. I don't want to see you like go to another team. Yeah, because these trader real crazy now. Day's like, for example, I think when Danny Green recent gut trade, he can get in trade like three times. So like before you say you got traded like three times. I was like it's crazy. Yeah, and in my heart, Danny Green, he should have just stayed on the spurs and he was killing it, you know. I mean I know he did it, but in my mind that's where I want to keep him at, even though I know he went to the Lakers. I just see they like that's where he is. I hope he doesn't go to the places before. I hope he's just like relaxing at home. It's like, look, I'll you know, I'll report to camp like a week before, but I'm not going to make all these these stops along the way. Definitely love basketball. We're really did basketball people in our house. So we're so excited it and we don't have to go through that. Does it only four months bank gap that break? Yeah, we didn't have to do that this term because the code. So being out in Charlotte. Then, are y'all Hornets fans? A podcast is yeah, watches horns. I mean, I will say, you know, whenever we go to the Mornings Games, we are making sure some of our favorite players are the opponents we're going to see you. We're panthers fans as well as Gold Panthers, so wonderful someone. No, Cam Newton doesn't play for US anymore. Right, I do know that. Yes, yeah, I am aware. Yeah, I just there was there was someone else that was like that. Not It wasn't cabin, it wasn't Tom Brady, but it was someone along like those levels where someone was just like, Oh, I didn't know they were on this team and drawn a blank on who it was and I was just like come on, like that's that's an obvious one, but I don't know. Yeah, I'm with you on the NBA. I like to think I'm paying attention. But then the name that triggered this with Garrett Temple, who is on my Chicago Bulls, who I have admittedly, kept less in touch with since moving outside of Chicago and now I live in Austin. So the birds are kind of, yeah, you know, the de facto team, just because they're the closest one here in the the G League team is in Austin, and I was just kind of like looking at the Bulls roster and I'm like, Oh yeah, they signed Garrett Temple a few weeks ago and I had totally forgotten he was even still playing. So major computer. Normally the trades, the trades out know about or you know. Normally like you, you're all stars, are superstars, you know, kind of like your people who are running for like six man, but if you're like a tent ten string player, I don't no one with the conversation...

...if we're talking about the topics. But the reason why I should is because normally you know people who are like bench players, like third string. You don't really hear. It doesn't make the news when they get traded. You know they don't. They don't make moves. There's not a's not in the press. You don't know they get traded. You know, of course, like if you get like a Lebron James or a D or James Harden, that's going to be all over. You know the news, but you know you're like a you know, like a no, I mean like roll. I don't call them nobodies, but you've you like a role player that you know on a certain level. Yea, I was like two points a game. You know it's not gonna be a lot of conversation or yeah, I'd still I'd still love to be a role player in the NBA that I'll make millions to sit on the end of the bench, Number Fifteen, at the bottom of the bottom, and I'll take one those ten. They have me up. So I'm yeah, man, I just want to talk NBI for for the rest of us. Yeah, we sort. Oh, he's always secretly wanted to be a sports analyst. He would still love that. He would be in heaven if you guys did a segment like there is in my blood man, because I you know, Steven Naismith, Steven N Smith, went to my went to my college. So yeah, number one analysts on TV, so excellent. Do you have a favorite Steven asmith moment? All of them. I mean, that's fair. That is fair. The thing I like about Steven Nasmith is is his is his voice. So the reason why few people are so drawn to him because, like you know, a lot of people might say he's aggravating stuff like that and don't like his voice. But you want, you will remember, you will watch and he I feel like he has the type of voice and he communicates in a fashion where you always want to watch, even though you might have some things that you might you might not particularly care about, but you watch. I don't have anything bad to say about it. And you know, I think he's I think he's the best one, the best analysts on TV. So I always like a tune in. One thing to kind of bother me. People started kind of a taking shots at his salary when they laid off a lot of people espn, and then, you know, he came out and made the clear to hey, the reason why I wasn't laid off is because I bring revenue to the company. Like you know, if if he wasn't on certain segments, a lot of people wouldn't watch. Yeah, I remember that happening and I was like no, he is. He has made his way and earned this and I agree, like, I mean, I could probably only name maybe a handful of ESPN folks that are still there and Stephen is definitely on the list and I agree, like I'll if I hear him from the other room, I'm like, I'm coming on, I want to hear what you have to kind of like the word. You know, a lot of people have something to say negative about me where there, but when he has a fight, you're going to watch the fight is well, now I feel like we can do maybe a rapid fire sports segment, so we're not fully alienating everyone, but we're still we're still letting you get your analyst hat on here. So what do you want to do? Mba, NFL, MLB, hockey in the NBA? Yeah, I don't watch. I don't watch a lot of you know baseball's I love baseball, but to me baseball is like they just kind of sit in one spots wait to wait for see HAP to be to the game. Yeahs to me. I I like I like to actually slayed that baseball Mor than kind of watch it. So, you know, one of those things. But it definitely NBA NFL. I can definitely, you know, speak tell you. Let's run through your MBA. Who Do you think is? Is A team that didn't make the playoffs last air and each conference that I'll make it this year. I always like these underdog stories right now, because you had all these trades that happened. So...

I can't really say who. I don't know. Maybe Atlanta, Atlanta powers, you know, maybe the Lanta hawks that you know. But, like I said, it's kind of hard to say it now because they're still in preseason. So you have all these maybe think about it from last year. You have all the well, think what I'm saying. You can't really go on the last year because the teams of change so much. Yeah, like like for example, so let's say, let's say I could say the wizards right because they have John Wall left there. Well, he wasn't playing anyways, but I'm saying he's officially prayed now. So you know, I like Beo. So I think Washington, you know, can make some problems. I think into the preseason, like maybe like the first two weeks get started. It's probably going to be extremely hard for me to say who I think is going to be a contender because I still don't know all the trades that happen. I just know, like you know, like it Dwhite Howards and people are at nature. You know, the teams, they that they went to. Didn't Dwight tweet that he was staying in La and then immediately was like, well, delete that, I'm actually going to philadelphy. It told the La Management that he wanted to come back, but I think the deal didn't happen quick enough. But in my and from my point of view, I think that they were they kind of put the white on the back bone, back burner, and they don't wait to see if they can get some better pieces. So I'm actually glad and they'll knock the de White. The La Roster is amazing from top to bottom. So if they had to lit the white go to get the roster they had up. You know, big ups to the GM. He made a hell of a comeback there because he's kind of on them. Yeah, but but the wight Howard had an awesome season last year, but I'm glad he got a ring. Yeah, I kind of feel like now his history is stamped. He would definitely go to the hall of fame because he has that ring now, because, you know, he after that backs what you know, a lot of people, a lot of people get him up. I don't feel like he was really yeah, but so what luck people staying is when you're like six foot ten and you're at big when you have back surgery, a lot of people don't come back from that. You know, you got to imagine howm with wait he's he's carrying on. He's having back surgery. Know he you know, his whole game was base was based off of dunking and blocking. So when you can't move as quick or you can't jump his Eids, you used to, that can't, you know, extremely affect your games, especially if you're not known for, you know, being a shooting, you know shooter and in having finesse to you a game, because he was more so like a power of personal he'll power to power to dump when you so I'm glad to see he's, you know, he's healthy in things now. But but back to the LA roster. You know, they they got Montrez Harrow shoulders, the shoulder. Yeah, they got stroller. Now they get basically two, two to six man of a year awards players in the team now. So that roster, I think, is, you know, from top to bottom. Is I don't see how they're going to lose. If it were the clippers roster, I would say because just the clippers half like a I don't know why, but anytime the clippers are good I feel like they just kind of like don't really enjoy playing basketball, like they're just kind of like, let's just fast forward to the playoffs and like we'll get it together then and then, I mean it didn't happen this year about. Yeah, I agree. I think the Lakers are like if they don't repeat, I'll be very surprised. Now I don't know is Lebron can win that Lebron can win without a d but I definitely think he can still go deep in the playoffs without Anthony Davis, because to me that and La team now is really more of Anthony Davis's team. Of course, of course Lebron still makes a major stamp on the team and you know, I think he's like thirty five now. He's still playing at an all star level. So I think he can definitely go deep in the playoffs by Anthony Davis is definitely going to have to be healthy...

...because, you know, we hadn't seen too me games from from Kyrie and Katie, but you know, you get Katie, ky read us h that's that's a hard tip to bargain with and maybe maybe hard and getting thrown in there too, will say that hardened situation is. It's crazy, man, like you know now our ready report of the day and they're kind of basic, saying like he's some Prima Donna and all he want to do is party and go to other cities. YEA, they were trying to say that about hard and saying that he showed up to practice late. That's why him in Westbrooks fell out. But you know, the funny thing about sports is, man, you see all this documentation and all these segments about these players and you never see clips and him saying that stuff is actually actually happen. So you know it's rough being a basketball player, man, because everyone is saying all these things about you but no one there's no clips of you saying those actual things. So you know this is unfortunate, but I guess when you're making hundreds of millions of dollars, they could say what they want to say about me too. Yeah, I'm like, you can, you can talk away on social media, just like I'm getting that Hicks. Yeah, I think. I think it'll be a blast of a really good season. I'm excited to see. I'm still so impressed with the whole bubble. Like I would I was shocked that went off without really any hitches or anything. So I'm I'm looking forward to the new season, which will be a few weeks underway by the time this goes life, but still still early on. So all of our predictions a whole true. I will do one other basketball question just because I was talking about this last night and I think it's always fun. Do you have a favorite dunk from the Slam Dunk contest all times? You know, probably the most iconic dunk is probably Mina Jordan jumped from the freedom line. I think that's everyone to well that one, and then when Vince Carter jumped and put this on. Yeah, yeah, I would probably say those are probably one of my my top two don't sold. So I got one that I didn't like it. I don't understand why he won. I was talking so much trash about this. Who was to do that? Jumped over the KIA, like Griffith. What? Oh, yeah, like this big you jumped over the kid and everybody is praising you for it. I was so upset that here and then I would say my probably two best in Dunk Games is when Um the Andred Jordan dunked on Brandon Knight. I wouldn't and he destroyed him. Yes, yes, yeah, and then my old school favorite dunk in game is when Dr j you remember when he came out that he came from the left side but a room. He did a whole windmill and it came back on the other side of the room. That that might have be the most at Dunk I've ever seen them. My he looks like there's no effort at all, like he's just like this is so easy for me. Yeah, and it's just in game, you know. That's that's what makes the phrases in game excellent choices. Christy, do you have any other favorite ones? I think that was a wonderful lest. Yeah, no, I think those are something that was yeah, I just didn't remember the ones that she didn't really get. The credit. That's some one's I'm like fussing about. I liked there was one. I remember the year. I think it's maybe like two thousand and two or two thousand and three, but do you remember when Chris Anderson had like fifteen attempts the Birdman? He just like kept missing dunks with bird remember? Yeah, well, that's what that might have been. Just Smith might have won that year in two thousand and five. So this might have been the year before in two thousand and four, but I remember Chris Anderson was in the dunk contest before that because I remembered him from the when he had all these miss dunks and I was like he wasn't even that good last year, like why is he back here? But he you did. He did a dunk the year before where he threw it off the backboard and then like caught it and his legs and dunked. And then Jason Richardson was right after him and Chris Anderson also went...

...through like five or six attempts before he finally ducked it and then just Jason Richardson goes the first time, does the same throw it off the backboard but then goes between the legs and three hundred and sixty and ducks successfully on the first time and you could just kind of hit did it like say anything, but you could just tell he was like all right, like this guys is not good, like I'm just going to show him up real quick. And it was so, so good. But I think, yeah, I think he's maybe my favorite dunk contested dunker just because again, like jumped so high and just looked so like this is a piece of cake every time he was doing it. Yeah, I remember he's played the horns that we saw him cup of awesome. Actually, I my favorite in game dunk involves the Hornets, although maybe they were the bobcats at that point, but it was old Richard Jefferson when he he dunks on Michael Kid Gilchrist and he gets called for an offensive fall for like pushing off him, but he dunks. He's like thirty six at this point and he dunks so like so intensely on him. So it's similar to the de under Jordan Dunk and the entire Hornets bench is just like falling out of their see it's watching. That's when you know it's bad. Is always bad when you're actually team has the least got the pitch. Yeah, you know it's going to be eruptated next day. We look at him. Wait, he's just sitting there with like his heads in his hands. Falls. It's like let's go, let's move on, let's move on. They should put some basketball dunks and you'd you see the segment for you got moss. Yeah, yeah, second, yeah, you know, he shows. I had an NFL plays pretty much a catching like one hand or like catching over three people. But mad fat is so funny because you know Randy Moss lives and Shirley so um, I have a I have a friend who who was opening Jim's, who used to open the Jim up, but Jim up in the morning and I was jogging around trying to get warmed up. I was like hey, man, it's like man, had got looks like Randy Moss. Dogged around again. I can't back. I stop. I said you look like Randy Moss. He looked at me like he want to Slat and he's like as I am Randy Moss. So you didn't pitch here. I you should throw in some dunks into your you got most sec that was the opportunity. Well, sports segment I give it an apply us. Hopefully everyone listening is also similarly excited about the NBA season getting started, in the NFL season hitting the playoffs. I'm just just right around the corner there. And to bring it all back, to bring it all back. Are there plans for more games down the line or is are you like five's good for now. We'll keep we'll keep pushing this for now. So we do have like two games kind of a pipeline. We're working through the functionality game, how you play it. So you know, we want to make sure we have a good product before we put it out. So you know it takes longer and expect it. Then we're we're cool with taking a little longer. But then also on a production side, we would like to eventually have an actual live gangs to where we would like have a hosted and people on TV. So that's some some future goals that hopefully will will come to for wishing some awesome or looking looking forward to it. And before we wrap up, I always like to end with a top three, and so if you each one of if you want to do like one each and then one together, or you each want to do your top three, I just love to hear your top three favorite cards for many of the Games. So one of my favorite it's a fact one, and this one points out the econom make Wellok, the gap within the black community, and it says the question is, how many hours does the black dollars circulate or how long does the black dollars circulate in the community? The answer is six hours. And so when you read that card you're like what you know? It's kind of one of those things where we purposely put in the game for people to take...

...a step back and like wow, like, what do you mean it only circulate six hours in the black community before we spend it somewhere else. So I think that one is one of my favorite ones because it shows that our game is not only just Haha, laughing, you know, having a great time. We also try to really throw some important information in there to just, you know, spark conversations, for people to really think about it and kind of say, well, Hey, well, what can we do to change that, like how can we try to work on keeping the dollar within the black community longer than six hours? And then, hopefully, what we want to come out of that conversation from the different groups of people that are playing it is hey, let's start supporting more black owned business. This less, you know, purposely. You know do it. You know, when we get up in the morning and when we think, okay, what are we going to go eat today? Maybe let's think of a black restaurant that we want to go to and support. Or whatever we're wearing, let's try to see what fashion is out there that's made about by a black entrepreneur. So that one is one of my favorites. What would you say, since we've been talking about sports? Oh, of course we as a card. There's a question to ask who's the best basketball player of all time? So I think on car we have Michael Jordan, Lebron, James, Kobe Bryant and, believe, Magic Johnson. So that question always turns into a discussion argument, because if you if you watch, if you watch basketball now, there's always going to be a discussion who's better, Michael All Lebron, right, and then you have people come in and say, well, how you skipping over Kolbe? How's Lebron skipping over Kobe? So that's one of my favorite questions as well. Yeah, the one. Oh, okay, another good one. I think when we talk about what can you expect from McDonald's? Oh yeah, yeah, that's a good one. So, because, so the question is, what can you expect from McDonald's at ten o'clock to night? Hmm, okay, let's see. He what do you think, without us even giving you any action, is all bad things. You're all bad. What would you expect from McDonald's at ten o'clock at night? Milk check machine broken? Those machines are never broken. McDonald's was my first years old and I remember whoever clean the ice cream machine, we would just say, oh, it's out for the rest of the night because we don't want to have to go back and do it anymore. So those machines are not damned, they are not broken. So I think. I think other options on that question are, I think, cold fries and may know, it's gonna be ten minutes on Friday. Yeah, we don't have any more apple pies. Yeah, and I can remember. Yeah, but we we the reason why we make the cards because of the one. Because so, what happened is pregnant, choose have Craz so feels like you think you can you go get me a MC flurry right, or I want to back empty handed. So we can have a homemade mick flurry. It's something at last. Yeah, yeah, but you've got your hood car. You got to right there. You welcome to the cook out. You. Yes, yes, I'm in there and I will not be bringing potato salad. And you know what? We got a potato sal I think. Yeah, just been like...

...what won't you eat of everybody, you know, like they're just really particular. Come out. Yeah. Well, I have not. I've not seen all the cards yet, but every every thing that I've played I've I've had a blast with. So if people want to pick up I I mean I'd say get all five, but if they only want one or two, like where can that go? So we sell all the Games on our website, which is ww social lastcom, and that's what one SOCIALIZECOM. And you also buy the Games on Amazoncom as well, but most of the specialty packs you can only buy it on our website. Yeah, but you can do like Combos, you can pick and checking. You want to get MVP pack of all the Games, which called all start us on our website. Yeah, this was so much fun. I'm I want to go play right after this. Well, now he's definitely just probably going to be one of his top podcast because you let him Beau. And the last the day is ESPN. If you're watching, I know I might need a little bit of fine tuning, but you know, we can work on this. I could look, I could be like Steve Naismith's side kick. Yes, kick it on over, I love it, love it. Whenever you talk a lot, I can kind of bring down a little bit. Yeah, when he's going, when he's getting off track, if there's like twenty seconds left, be like Hey, well, we'll wrap it up here. Are Regret you like my specialties will be like come on, Steve, come on, that's what I'm be known for one. I mean, I'm sorry, I'm sad. I'll send. I'll send an audio tape to you over the ESPN today. Start on radio and I build your raft to video. It's they mean. That's what that's what Steven Nay does, right, doesn't it? He also has a radio, sure, right, yeah, he's heavywe's such a ring way to do it, the way to do it awesome. Well, thank you so much, and I got to end with a Corny joke, like I always do. Why couldn't the pirates sit down because I didn't have cheers. His booty got stolen. You know what I like? It's bribery. Yeah, Ye, see, I'm not a pirate pert. Yeah, you should have got that. Anything about that? The reason I did want to say something like that because me and my fellows we had like this pause. They we don't really do anymore like you be like these do a couple years back, but any do anytime someone says something. was kind of like on the fence who, like pause, has seen a segment. I was like his booty guts don't. How did you know that? So you should. You should reconsider. You can expect the drones. I'm not thinking about any of the booty I like. I like. That s where your mind went, though, but good, good call at the pots.
