Growing up in a family of 7 (5 kids) I learned two things. Eat popcorn very quickly or there will be none left for you. When a new carton of ice-cream is opened, you have to move fast to be the first poke.
The 2007 version of the ice-cream “first poke” is the strange pride people get for being the first to comment. We saw this occur with every single video by the late ZeFrank (God rest his soul).
Since YouTube has a lag or cue on comments, there are usually a few people that think they’re the first.
