CookoutNewsNetwork: Black Twitter Starts Humorous Trend With #CookoutNewsNetwork
Fourth Of July weekend, could only mean cookouts. Recently, Black Twitter has once again started another trend titled, '#CookoutNewsNetwork.'
This trend happens to share those unforgettable moments or quotes you oftenly hear or see at black cookouts. Some of the tweets, I actually experienced more at dinner with my family than at cookouts, especially if I tell my grandma I may not want any of her green beans at the moment. You should see her face. And of course, they're those who attend the cookout, but don't bring a thing and still have the nerve to take four plates for later. The hashtag originated from @CerromeRussell. Check out a few of Flavor In The Street's favorites below. Of course, I couldn't resist joining in.
Overall, I’m hoping everyone enjoyed their ‘Fourth Of July.’ Yesterday, was basically an ordinary day for me. My dad didn't grill, so my aunt bought fast food from Wendy's and Rally's. We also went to Kohl's, and it was pratically empty, despite us seeing numerous cars in the parking lot, leaving to the conclusion that most were at 'Bahama Breeze.'
I've never been one who was the 'life-of-the-party' at cookouts anyway, but I could definitely relate to some of the tweets I read yesterday, that had me cackling. All I would've really liked to do yesterday was go see the fireworks. I didn't mind not having a cheeseburger or hotdog. It also would've been nice if we went to see my aunt and uncle in NC, considering how nice it was yesterday.
Still, tell me how your cookout experiences were yesterday, if you even did anything yesterday, or if you just read #CookoutNewsNetwork tweets, and got fastfood (like me)?
And of course, it wouldn't have been 'Fourth Of July' without me playing this gem.
