Notes & Memorable Quotes Edit

Pre-Guest Segment Edit

  • Hayes and a prawn (from District 9) they wash ashore after having gone overboard on Kumail's Big Sick cruise - for award season
  • Sean was going to go on Kumail's cruise, but got on the wrong boat - a different awards boat
    • It was for the Logan Paul suicide forest video
    • The boat sank because Logan dabbed so hard that he put a whole in the hull of the ship
    • Eventually people started wondering: what award would this even be up for?
    • Logan was already in trouble
    • Hayes suggested that Logan was going to try and get out of trouble by putting the video up for awards.
  • So on the Big Sick cruise it's only Hayes, this prawn, and Kurt Braunohler
    • Hayes is trying to figure out games and such, and there are a ton of ropes
    • Hayes ties a rope around the prawn and himself, and then attempts to lasso a seagull
    • Instead of a seagull Hayes ended up lassoing a container ship - which dragged Hayes and the prawn off the ship
  • So after washing up on the beach Hayes looks up and it's a naked beach
    • Hayes is about to go ham - go nuts on the naked beach, but everyone sees that there is a prawn with Hayes - and they hate prawns
      • This prawn sucks though
      • Hayes has never really liked prawns, but he feels he can say this because he's friends with some prawns
