Food: John ‘Pops’ Witherspoon Is Cooking Up Some “Poor Man’s Gumbo” (Video)

Hey everyone I’m back with another episode of Cooking For Poor People!
John Witherspoon

That’s it. There is no punchline. You did know he had a cooking show, right?

Well, I didn’t… until now. And that gumbo looks good!

(Tastes good, too. Made mine without the okra. Subbed in canned sweet green peas and canned green beans, because that’s what I had on hand.)

Oh, and while there are no intentional ‘punchlines’ you already KNOW there will be hilarious moments in this clip. Wait on the prayer at the end. John is gonna have to answer for that one (bwaaahaaa)!

RIP to the LEGEND, John Witherspoon #RIPPOPS
