Post Cornbread and kool-aid
This may sound like a silly question to someone whose native language is English, but as English is a foreign language for me, I sometimes have problems to understand certain idioms and proverbs.

I read this one in Bob Guina's article "You Complete Me":
Quote:
My friends said, "That's the cornbread and kool-aid talking".
I have no idea what that means. Can anybody please help me?

Here's a thread where someone asked the same thing.

That's basically it. The guys from WDFN 1130AM made up the cornbread saying and the kool-aid is to wash down the cornbread :lol:

This is where the "kool-aid" saying came from. http://www.raptureready.com/rr-kool-aid.html
