COMEDY: Garfunkel and Oates’ “Weed Card” for 4-20
Today’s a special day for a whole bunch of special lil’ folk. Like pixies and leprechauns, these wee folk take to the hills and the woods and the forests, shying away from the light of day, their existence shrouded in myth and ceremony.
Yes, we’re talking about hippies. And the date today is 4/20, which is coincidentally also the time of day when people often smoke a joint, which comes — allegedly — from a high school tradition in California in the 1980s. Or something like that.
Anyway, here’s a tribute to what it’s like on 4/20 in Cali-for-ni-aye, where almost anyone can get a doctor’s help keeping the man off his back, courtesy of the every pixie-ish charm of Garfunkel and Oates, in their latest video.
