According to Dave, he is not a fan of 1910-30s boxing, but it was named after from the "Drinking out of cups" video with the talking lizard. He and and another bartender used to banter back and forth with lines from that video. Puts the year a little after 2000 since the video came out 2006 and I had it in early 2009.
Don’t know if it could have been inspired by the audio of that video?
“Audio track was originally recorded in 2003 as a class project by the American musician Dan Deacon, just talking about random things on TV channels in character of a stereotypical Long Islander. It was also featured on his 2003 release Meetle Mice. ”
