The year was 1992, and I had just turned 14 years old. I was the poster boy for the white kid in the suburbs who was obsessed with the West Coast gangsta rap movement.  

Like most Minnesotans, I played hockey every month of the year.  Car-pooling was in full effect, and sometimes we'd drive over an hour just to practice.  Fortunately, I had a "cool Mom" that let me play whatever music I wanted.  

When listening to Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" on repeat with my teammates, we'd often replay the intro to the sixth track, featuring a young Snoop Dogg, and aptly called "Deeez Nuts."  

Tim SchmidtTo this day, the 44 year old me still drops "Deez Nutz Jokes" on people at any given moment.  I get a lot of help from my high school son and his friends to keep up with the latest renditions of something that has made me laugh for almost 30 years.  

I would be lying if I told you I won't be using Deez Nutz jokes late into my life, because I never find them getting old!

I started Deez Nutz as a reminder that we can always use more laughter in our lives.  All items sold on the website are meant to bring people together, create banter, and initiate deep belly chuckles.  


Thanks for visiting, and please don't hesitate to reach out to us if what's his name gets at you.

Who, you ask?  

"Deeeeeez Nutz."
