“I enjoy the spring, but the spring is also hay-fever season. There’s a lot of folks walking around, sneezing and hacking. You know, pollen is everywhere. But do you ever think of it for what it truly is? Vegetable sperm.

The trees start trembling, then they have an orgasm, a cloud of green dust comes off and it starts floating around. We call it pollen, but it’s actually vegetable sperm. So when you be walking around sneezing and hacking and coughing — that’s sperm. I know a lot of y’all are kind of shocked right now to find out you’ve been taking it to the face your entire life from the trees.”
