The question was first proposed by retronimo, a member of the Discord server. He proceeded to ask it to so many guests during recordings that Lars and Joe began to ask it automatically on many episodes.
The implied humor of the question comes from the fact that it is a nonsense question about a very specific animal, and that the opinion of the guest on the boar animal species is largely irrelevant on an interview with a typical First Podcast guest (whom are generally YouTubers, actors and musicians.
In November 2019, Lars noted wanting to retire this gag, implying it had gotten stale and mentioning that JobbyTheHong gave the best answer already ("They're tasty"). The question was retired on the AmyRightMeow episode, when they had a fan on the Discord server come on air to give it one final time.
