A TikTok video by QueenBV59, about her preparations for casting a ballot during early voting, was shared all over Twitter on Thursday. I’ve watched it half a dozen times myself.

One repeated word—jush—was new to me and, apparently, to some other viewers as well.
OK, folks, I’m gonna go over here and get my jush
Y’all need to get y’all jush and get y’all vote on
I’m gonna get my damn jush
Jush—rhymes with push—turns out to be a rare slang term that can be traced to a single person. But it isn’t quite as simple as that.
