Black Twitter is one of the smartest and funniest entities on the Internet. Whether these tweeters are roasting relatives during the holidays or grilling Raven-Symoné, it’s all A+ content. This time they’re totally killing it with #BlackDerbyHorseNames.

Derby horse names have always been a bit ridiculous (others from this race include Danzing Candy and Captain Bodgit), so here’s the denizens of the Internet skewering those with well-known sayings and relevant pop culture in the Black community.
