After a long night of food a college stoner was still feeling the munchies. He decided at the last second to order the dollar-sized Hush Puppies at Long John Silvers and the Cashier took the $1.06 from the stoner. After several minutes, she came back to the register with the stoner's money in her hand. She handed the money back to the stoner and said "I'm sorry, here's your dollar-six back. I can't handle Hush Puppies right now. Do you want fries or fish or something?" From that point on, the term Hush Puppies was coined.
"That's Hush Puppies."
"I call Hush Puppies."
"I can't handle this -- dude Hush Puppies."
"That's Hush Puppies. You hit me man. Not cool. That is Hush Puppies!"
"Pass me that hush puppy."
"When we see Gary coming over to our table, one of us says "Hush Puppies" because we know Gary is going to start talking loud and bragging and getting in our heads.... we don't want to be mean to Gary so we warn each other by saying "Hush Puppies" meaning get ready for Gary's mouth.
