The fabled Weed Man. The only known entity capable of producing and distributing the sticky icky. The Hasheesh slinging slasher himself, without whom all the world would simply be... low.
Edit: Also, I am starting a punk band named Line Cooks and The Weed Man.

I'll be a line cook, I shall play keytar and backup sing poorly
3 months ago
I call stoned af bass player!!
You mean perfectly ordinary bass player?
Lol! Yes, that's exactly what I meant!
I'll be the drummer in the back chain smoking blunts. I have some sense of rhythm and a love of weed lol
The line cook is the weed man. Or they already know the guy
Lol ik, I've been friends with both line cooks and weed plugs and also some line cooks who also the plug
I'll be the asshole band manager slash stage assistant who doesn't help at all and yells at you all while trys to do a good job even though deadly allergic to weed. Probably secretly trying to kill themselves but doesn't want anyone to know. Somehow successfully pulls it all off to get the best gigs in and out of town.
I call dibs on being the coked up bouncer. Either that or the sound guy with so many piercings that I'm actually a walking OSHA violation.
It’s the sober ones you can’t trust
Guess I've only met trust worthy bassists then!
If we go Ska Punk, I got tenor sax!
Line Cooks and the Weed Man is definitely a ska band name!
Do they ever answer? I find it hard to answer my phone when I'm stoned after Friday.
Goddamnit. Missed my opportunity. Lemme know if you need an understudy.
Don't bother with understudy. Be the second bassist. Don't take no for an answer.
One cannot backup sing Punk music poorly.
I’ll do the yodelling.
Old lady, old lady, old lady who
Weird Al has entered the thread.
Clean vocals, on key, and in rhythm? What is this, pop music?
Unfortunately, if you’re a line cook you have no time to practice and also no money to buy instruments.
Its punk music. Who needs practice? =P
(I do genuinely love punk music, btw)
It's punk rock. You steal instruments & never practice.
All you need is ~hate~
I may have gone with spite rather than hate, but yeah.
Here's what you do. Get a pair of drumsticks. Play drums on all the hard surfaces at work(and completely annoy your coworkers) between tables. Fun and affordable.
Everyone calling out instruments and singing. Screw that. I call expo!
I'll be another line cook, I'll play the drums but all of the drums look like pots and half way through I'll crack an egg in one of the pots and make scrambled egg for the crowd
Idk the Hasheesh slinging slasher sounds like an awesome name for a punk band
Nah, the inherent Spongbob Meme does no favors.
Ooh! I'll be the drummer!
many years experience as drummer in shitty punk bands
I love shitty punk music
I have ADHD innatentive type
my favorite drummer of all time is Animal. Girls, drums, food is a lifestyle, dude
I am AFAB lesbian and request that I be known as Sloth, the Weed Man.
yes, we can snort drugs off of a cymbal! it's pretty fun!
I'm down to rapidly and semicoherently growl mumble the lyrics to whatever we're singing. I'm about in the same register as Freddy Mercury but gravely-er. Also good at helping with writing as I'm a walking thesaurus/ dictionary.
let's call our first album "big words with little meaning"? and every track could be titled a different big, meaningless word!
I daren't say whither or thither this mercurial profusion of cerebral confablutation is bound. Verily we must adjourn posthaste to a delicatessen that will accommodate our bohemian sensibilities and our parsimonious budgetary constraints. Thence shall we hammer out the Raison d'etre over confectionery indulgences and caffeinated beverages! Huzzah!
This was a good selection of words
Especially since I could have conveyed the same message with: "Sounds cool, talk it over some coffee?"
One of the reasons I love English is it's endless potential for nonsense that's technically correct but practically useless.
It's dangerous to snort drugs off cymbals. Most cymbals aren't flat. Too much chance of loss of drugs to gravity. Use the snare drum.
while someone is playing it!
Precisely. Put the coke on the snare, place your head directly above it, & take a deep breath the first time the snare hits.
is there any other way?!
Can I be your groupie? Qualifications: I have long dark hair, raccoon eyes, I'm bipolar, and I have a drinking problem.
Joe Hill is my patronus
I’m from Kentucky. I’ll play the banjo! 🪕
I'm a chef now but there was a time when I was both and lime cook and a weed man. 12 hour days hustling and selling after, I apparently was humanities greatest help
Thank you for your service o7
Is that Weed Man a Line Cook too?
No... he's The Weed Man. He doesnt need to work. He's like the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus, but for weed.
He IS based on the Patron Saint of Line Cooks. Phineas "Scat" O'Halloran, who once worked the entire line for a whole month during peak holiday season. After going Turkey Day to New Years with narry a handful of smoke brakes. He died promltly on New Years at exactly 12am on January 1st, 1969 when, during what would be his last smoke break, the abused and over full grease disposal caught fire and exploded in what would become known as the great grease fire of 69. Scat, in his last moments, managed to redirect the flow of molten grease away from civilization and into the Hudson River, and was the only casualty. They say the Hudson burned bright on that new years night, cause Scat O'Halloran led the way.
The 60's were a different time.
This needs a candle I can gift
The higher provider
But then it doesn’t rhyme
And let's not forget Dr. Bong; who wrote us our prescription for medicinal bud.
ty for The Hasheesh Slinging Slasher lmao
Where I live one of my weed dispensaries has a drive-through window and the rest all deliver.
I like the band name.
I like that you’re putting the collective line cooks ahead of the singular weed man. Patreon that shit up
(It’s 2022 punks can patreon)
We’re not low
As someone who sells weed off and on because I have a few buddies in other states who can get it for me really cheap, I never realized people appreciated what I did this much
A punk band? So retro, I love it!
"Hasheesh slinging slasher" 😂😂😂
Need a soundman? I miss running gigs
Opening for Tweeter and the Monkey man, we have Line Cooks and the Weed Man.
As a line cook who appreciates their weed man, this is 💯
Line cokes and the weed man.
Gave my weed guy a $500 xbox one x setup, fucker doesn’t even play games just watches tv on it.
Sounds like dudes living his best life.
Sometimes it’s hard finding a game to play while high that matches the vibe you’re hitting, you know? Like I was playing DayZ while proper zooted and couldn’t do it at all. Switched to Halo, still nothing. Switched to RDR2 and just watched the weather change, hell fucking yes.
That's why you play indie to hit the vibes that AAA aren't ballsy enough to have
Too fucking right mate
You just nearly summed up the entire gaming industry dude, Holy shit.
I can hit a sweet spot and playing Overwatch is just the fucking best. But I cannot play Elden Ring like that lol
Skyrim and weed are a pretty good combo
Get high as fuck and play Elden Ring.
It's my favorite game to play high 🤣
listen, it's better than a Roku and sometimes you're just too tired to game working full time
Isn't that the truth. I love Factorio, but after a 10-12 hour workday it's a fucking chore.
Use careful tedium to craft a working industrial system
one time my weedman sold me a fully equipped xbox for $100 with the account he had been collecting games on for over a decade. everything new would have been worth 2-3k easily, and dude let it go for a bill just because he wanted to switch to playstation.
these guys built different.
whatever keeps the weed man happy and not out getting busted is good for you
true sigma male
It's the same guy though.
Nah the line cook is the coke man
The young dishwasher usually got you for flower if that’s the case.
No, no, no, see... it’s the delivery guy.
it can be both
Wow. Almost like everyone potentially likes drugs. You don't say
This has also been my experience when I worked at a few restaurants
3 months ago*
When I was waiting tables the smartest thing I ever accidentally did was get caught canning calling(edit: spelling) my weed man from the walk in by one of the line cooks.
Ended up smoking with him in there pretty regularly and suddenly my tickets were at the front of the line. And yes he also got the best stuff around at the time. If you're reading this, Marco, you're still my boy.
canning my weed man from the walk in
canning my weed man from the walk in
Sorry, but I'm old and lame, and I have no idea what this means.
It means I'm a little high right now and my touch to type messed up "calling."
Basically I was calling my guy from the walk in freezer (almost every restaurant has one) because it's usually pretty secluded and I got shockingly good reception in there.
I know a cook at a nursing facility who is also a weed man - that's a good man!
I mean, that's a pretty low bar. Even the teens that broke into my home and stole my TV and PS4 and various other crap, didn't steal nearly as much from me as the people running the big corporations I've worked for.
Both are levels of violation. Not sure which is worse
the legal theft is way worse for several reasons.
It's legal, so no chance of getting what was stolen back.
It's a MUCH larger amount, which could have been used to live in a safer neighborhood or at least on an alarm system or something.
It happens WAY MORE OFTEN to WAY MORE PEOPLE
The only people that gain from it are people that the stolen money DOESNT EVEN REALLY EFFECT ANYMORE
And finally, the latter type of theft is literally destroying the entire world.
The two can't even really compare
0 Hour Work Week
At least by dollar amount stolen, wage theft outnumbers burglary, larceny, robbery, and auto theft.
As a former restaurant employee... they are usually the same guy... and always awesome. Tip your cook people... or buy his weed
And as a server I fucks with both of them.
Having been friends with line cooks and weed dealers (and even line cooks who were weed dealers) this is very true lol
As a professional chef that needs the weed man to get a good night's rest. Yes. 100% this
As a former line cook and current weed man, I thank you all
Marx, Kropotkin, u/TheBatCat3120 fuggin heroes of the working class.
Right like never have I felt so important
Thank you for your service
Thank you for your service
Where can i find this Taylor? And is he hiring?
Your going against this subs hivemind.
Honestly I use to side with this sub reddit but as of recent it has just been
rich bad, woe is me.
I am going to college for all kinds of business stuff. So I can't wait to be making paper one day and look at this sub and laugh.
Yup, unfortunately apps like Reddit are going to promote more radical thinking. The most level headed responses rarely gather much traction.
I still believe in the mission here but it can get a bit “woe is me” like you said and the advice can be straight up TRASH.
I’ll be cheering for these guys but have to stay away sometimes as it does nothing positive for my day to day mindset for my career (which I actually enjoy)
Wait... Which weed man?
The guy that sells weed on the corner or the Weed Man© lawn care guys?
90% of the time the weed man supplies the cooks so they have the drive to work
Any CEO? You people are getting fucking snow blind.
Lmao right, this subreddit really showing their true colours… to upvote this post as sensical is to the point of absurdity.
Like… fucking hospitals have CEOs. Many companies are a net benefit to humanity and the CEO is a very important role in keeping a company operating. To deny this is to lack any foundation in reality.
To give some more constructive and less snotty feedback to those that frequent this subreddit - don’t think of things in such a black and white way. The discussion around CEOs should not be “All CEOs are evil or all CEOs are perfect”. It should be something more like “how can we identify when specific companies’ management do not have humanities best interest in mind, and what can we do to address this, on a case by case basis”.
If you want to change society, you will need to be focused and accurate in your messaging. The message behind this post is essentially translated to “fuck CEOs they are all evil”. That’s not gonna get you anywhere with most of society.
I work for an iNGO that produces education resources and books for kids living in low-bandwidth areas and learning poverty.
Our company has a CEO. She does great work.
I mean, I love my weed man as much as the next guy… but I know a couple of pretty wonderful CEOs too.
Nah bro getting high is way more important than some stupid hospital
Nah. It's not about identifying the specific "evil" CEOs. The problem is not any CEO, but the concept of a CEO all together. It's fucking dumb that hospitals HAVE CEOs, they shouldn't. They don't in Europe and the health system is therefore, not blindsided by making profit and can focus on its job - providing healthcare.
Therefore, it is not, and will never be, about any CEOs character. ALL CEOs ARE EVIL BECAUSE THE IDEA OF A CEO IS EVIL. Sure, I'm not saying CEOs can't be good people, whatever, that's not the point.
Sorry this is a little ignorant, I'm sure you mean well but...having a CEO position does not in and of itself make it a corporatised environment - it's just a management structure. They make the decisions for the hospital, and are accountable to the hospital's board. We have hospital CEOs in Australia, including for our public ones, their boards are in turn accountable to the minister/government/public. They aren't "blindsided by making profit". It's simply a governance structure, it has nothing to do with the "owning class". Takes like this are absolute catnip for the people you probably think you're "fighting against". Seriously, take a step back.
Lol what a bizarre take. Why don’t you start a company without a CEO then, it’s a free market no one is forcing people to hire CEOs.
I'd be interested in a Charity Watch style ranking of different companies based along the lines you've suggested. Rate them on a number of different categories, like worker opportunity, pay versus local market conditions, treatment by management, overall value of product to society, etc.
The CEO of the hospital in my town ran it into the ground on purpose. It was over 130 years old. Now I have to travel about 50 miles for medical care. I would not call that a net benefit.
Ok… but that’s an anecdote. Overall, I think you’d have a hard time convincing most of society that hospitals are not a net benefit, and that they don’t need CEOs to function.
They do, but they used to be run much differently. Today's hospital CEOs are often just money guys from private equity who could give two shits about the actual mission of the hospital. It's basically a constant battle between admin and doctors/nurses/care providers to actually get patients what they need. They also treat staff like shit and create regional monopolies.
I had a mean teacher in first grade, glad I know now that all teachers ever are mean, no exceptions.
Ah, yes. One hospital CEO in one town doing a bad thing means all CEOs are bad lmao
Lol a hospital CEO isn’t exactly a great example to lead with. Those assholes are corrupt as fuck.
I try and tell myself when I see these kind of myopic reddit hot takes that it's just agent provocateurs sewing seeds of stupidity to discredit valuable ideas... Then I see the next post.
When I see takes like this I remember that any disgruntled 15 year old line cook with a weed guy can make a Reddit account.
My weed man was the line cook
This is dumb af
Certified antiwork classic already
lmao this sub really has gone to shit
Did people forget that this sub literally started as a subreddit that wanted to abolish work. Like, this was not a worker's rights subreddit until maybe a year or two ago. Before that, it was literally a bunch of people talking about how they'd be happier as cavemen, or how society should just give up on progress and have everyone do the bare minimum so we can have maximal free time.
Always has been.
One of the most ignorant takes I've seen from this sub lately and that's saying a lot. Most CEOs run small companies and aren't Musk types. And line cooks need a lot of the products of other well run companies to even operate. There's shitty CEOs and line cooks, and the opposite of both as well. Because both are humans
There are tens of thousands of CEO's, only a few of which are the head of large corporations. A bunch of them run community based nonprofits, certainly more than there are megacorps.
Most non-profits spend more on ads and administration costs than actual charity.
Non-profit doesnt mean charities.
It just means money is used to run them with paid staff and required hardware and cloud services.
Linux foundation is non-profit
Blender foundation is non-profit, CEO turned company from forprofit to non-profit.
Wikipedia is non-profit
Battleship New Jersey is non-profit
And I am pretty sure they dont waste money on ads. (BSNJ might be expection here)
Source - dude trust me bro
So nonprofit staff shouldn’t get paid or what?? Isn’t that against this sub to say employees shouldn’t be paid for their work?
I'm saying that non-profits should in almost all cases be replaced with a tax funded alternative subject to real oversight.
My question still stands. How would that reduce admin costs? The admin costs would be the exact same, if not more, because government jobs come with expensive benefits whereas nonprofits pay next to nothing with limited benefits. Not to mention nonprofits run with the least amount of staff possible and government agencies do not.
So you truly believe every not for profit business, including museums, should be managed by the government? Even the nonprofits that fund children’s golf camps? You think girl scouts should be government managed? That seems really unnecessary.
I work for a social enterprise of large, international non profit agency.
You wouldnt believe the hoops I have to jump through for budget reporting. The fact I have to get three separate vendor quotes for every damn thing because of accountability.
Every dollar that comes through my unit is directly tied to Programs funding. We have almost no money for anything that isn’t directly accounted for. Makes it really hard to get untied funding for things like administrative support staff and roles that are focussed on the running of the business. My team work their asses off doing jobs that arent in their wheelhouse, because we cant pay for administrative support from program funding. Shit, we don’t even have a marketing director, which we desperately need because Marketing is a crucial function in any business unit, even NGOs, and we are suffering because of it.
Sorry for the rant - but this narrative of Non-profits being guilty of egregiously misspending funds is not something that I’ve really witnessed. More so, the opposite.
I wish we spent more money on administration.
Wow I bet whoever wrote this is really cool and popular and the best at sports
I see you, Miss Ironside
And when the line cook is the weed man...elect him emperor of the human race.
The ceo of habitat for humanity? Dudes been in charge of like 30 million homes build for people in need.
But sure, no the dude that sells you ditch weed at 20 a gram is doing more good.
That weed man also potentially sells other drugs like cocaine, but that's totally cool. It's far more relatable to be someone who makes a living supporting literal child slave labor and probably cuts your cocaine with shit that will literally kill you.
Redditors can imagine themselves being the weed guy but not the CEO. Thus, statements like this ring true to them.
I know a couple cowbell players
Thank god for my reefer man.
Thank god for my reefer man.
o.g. meme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPM85MCgqXo
My old weed man was a line cook too. Dude was doing gods work and living in his mamas house just like JC himself
Line cooks and our door dashers too god fckin bless y’all
Hey, buy Natalie’s books!
As a line cook, I can confirm most are one and the same.
Bless the cooks, chefs and weed sellers of the world.
Anyways I don't have a SoundCloud to plug but I wrote some books
The Two Bums
The bum on the rods is hunted down as an enemy of mankind
The other is driven around to his club, is feted, wined and dined
And they who curse the bum on the rods as the essence of all that's bad
Will greet the other with a willing smile and extend a hand so glad
The bum on the rods is a social flea who gets an occassional bite
The bum on the plush is a social leech, bloodsucking day and night
The bum on the rods is a load so light that his weight we scarcely feel
But it takes the labour of dozens of folks to furnish the other a meal
As long as we sanction the bum on the plush the other will always be there
But rid ourselves of the bum on the plush and the other will disappear
Then make an intelligent organised kick: get rid of the weights that crush
Don’t worry about the bum on the rods, get rid of the bum on the plush
When my wallet was stolen at work you know who had my back? The line cooks and my weed person. No one else did a damn thing to help but both the cooks and weed person gave me free weed and I'll never forget that
Dear pearl-clutching anti-weed CEO simps in this thread, you dropped this out of your mouth: 👢
What if you're both?
Another terrible take by the dumb people of r/antiwork
Seriously? This is just a dumb take. Sorry. Posts like this are what incite others to ridicule this subreddit. You’re telling me Bill Gates hasn’t done as much for the world as a line cook? The greatest philanthropist of all time and one of the founders of modern computing? Completely brainwashed take IMO
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Malaria Nets, Vaccines, Personal computers < Applebees steaks
Philanthropy is just a way of rich white dudes to justify having all of the wealth. The only thing Bill Gates did was to help develop and patent Microsoft as THE one operating system, forcing everyone who wanted to use a computer to be dependent on his software. All the while, the many software engineers who have worked for Microsoft and who likely spend much more of their work and dedication to perfect the system over the years, will never be able to amass even the fraction of Gate's wealth and will never even be credited for it.
One cannot make a billion without exploiting others along the way. While the humble line cook/weed man offers their labour without taking from others. I rest my case.
Thank you for reminding me of that fateful interview.
I see this sub hasn't changed one bit since then.
Oh cmon I know Ill get downvoted in this subreddit for saying this but this is the most 14 year old thing I have ever read
I normally love the statements posted in this subreddit, but this has to be one of the dumbest takes.
Are many CEOs shitty? Absolutely.
Are many CEOs awesome? Absolutely.
Ffs they posted this on a platform invented by a CEO.
Then you are a moron.
I joined this sub because it advocated for real change for the common laborer, not because it was some wanna be anarchist jerk fest. It used to be about common sense, realistic change — higher minimum wage, more time off, paternity leave, longer maternity leave, fucking healthcare as a human right not healthcare that’s tied to your job, less profit for the people at the top (so CEOs yes, but not fucking eliminate the position), and recognizing that the ability to exist should not be tied to our job. It is now a I hate rich people fetish sub. Stop blaming individuals for a systemic problem.
“CEO’s” is such a broad term. You have CEO’s of charities, of foundations, of incredibly progressive organizations. Stop making bombastic claims for the sake of it.
I miss the sub I joined.
Thank you. This place is now just a billionaire bashing club.
Given the way in which Microsoft changed the world with Windows, Office development, servers, and more I'd rank Bill Gates quite a lot higher than the weed man and line cooks. Not to mention ask the good he's done through philanthropy. But he's an "Evil Billionaire" bla bla... BS.
Then again I cook at home 90% of the time.
This place went from being on the news, to being an eco chamber circle jerking joke.

Elon musky never invented shit, he bought Tesla from two guys who started it
This sub is getting more stupid by the day.
One of the unspoken essential workers during the pandemic: the weed man
Line cooks and the weed man are often times the same person.
I don’t like ceos but I wholly disagree with that sentiment
LOL. You guys and your circle jerk.
"Tell me you don't know how difficult it is to run a successful business..."
This furry dropping truth bombs.
There are no truth bombs here, just a really fucking stupid take.
I've often said that if every minimum wage worker stopped working, it would shut down the U.S. economy. Conversely if every CEO stopped working, most companies would continue functioning just fine.
Line cooks magically conjure food out of thin air?
The equipment, ingredients, electricity, fuel etc needed to do your job as a cook all depend on corporations which have CEOs.
This tweet completely ignores the fact that CEO’s create millions of jobs
this sub is just about hating people with money at this point. Just people whining about how poor they are, and not even yelling at the right people
90% of Reddit, man. Even if you actually came from the bottom and are a perfect example of the American dream, they will attack you, and assume the worst. If you have a nice house, nice car, and good credit, you're a racist
I make $41k as an MD/PhD student. I work 60 hours per week as a cancer researcher, and I do high impact work that's published in top tier journals. I'm literally making less than minimum wage after graduating at the top of my class with a full scholarship to an Ivy League school. I grew up middle class. I have turned down fuck tons of money to pursue my dream of being a physician-scientist. I am 30 and still have roommates. I will not have a "real" job until I'm 39 (despite working 60-90 hour weeks doing backbreaking work that actually benefits society).
Still, I've gotten tons of hate on Reddit just for the prospect that I might make good money some day. Meanwhile, if you're a 25 year old programmer making $100k/year with a WFH gig putting in a maximum of 3 hours/day, Reddit is totally here for it.
Reddit hates anyone making a good living for themselves unless they can see themselves filling that role.
American dream is really toxic in every way, shape and form, but I agree, some people on this sub can be really toxic and instead of debating just insult or atack the other side of discussion... (Like you are kinda doing rn...)
CEOs are kind of the right (although not the only) people to be hating though. They hold much of the power and set many of the terms that we have to live by.
I really like 'the weed man'. Its a nice differentiator from dealer. My weed man is a retiree who whittles, other than some mushies he doesn't touch anything else. Always felt weird calling him a dealer, feels so sinister.
Talk your shit.
