What are ‘Deez Nuts’ Jokes?

‘Deez Nuts’ is a phrase that’s used to deliberately interrupt and divert a conversation.

It’s intended to trick the person you’re talking to, and all you have to do is randomly say the phrase ‘Deez Nuts’ when you’re in the middle of a conversation.

It also works in text and online, and is going viral on TikTok right now.

It comes from Dr. Dre

The phrase ‘Deez Nuts’ was first used by Dr. Dre on his 1992 album Chronic.

Dr. Dre’s track titled ‘Deeez Nuuuts’ begins with a phone conversation between a man and a woman.

After a bit of back-and-forth, the man suddenly shouts “Deez nuts!”, and since then, it’s become a viral joke.

The ‘Candice’ joke is similar

The popular ‘Candice’ joke that’s taking over TikTok right now is similar in nature to a ‘Deez Nuts’ joke.

On TikTok, users have been asking their friends and family if they know about ‘Candice’, and the conversation goes a little bit like this: 

“OMG, did you see that Candice died today?”

“Candice who?”

“Candice d*ck fit in yo mouth!”

Like the ‘Deez Nuts’ joke, the whole purpose of the ‘Candice’ trend is to trick the person, and it’s certainly working.
