The Kiffness is South African...I was going to check the profile then I saw the t-shirt. So maybe his family is Ukraine origin.
btw kif is an old slang word for...cannabis, derived from gif (poison.)
mmm...I was vaguely aware of that, but think of "Durban Poison." ...How gif would go to kif, well, I immediately think of how..uhh..distorted Kaapse Afrikaans is...and also how Afrikaans words are distorted or modified when they get used in Durban slang.
...I think you're right though, and I sometimes wondered how it came to be 'poison'. It probably started with 'kif', somehow, and then people thought that was from 'gif'.
