    Default running the joint

    You know, if it weren't for those lions, we'd be runnin' the joint.

    What does the phrase from LION KING 'running the joint' mean?

    Thank you in advance.

    Default Re: running the joint

    They would be in charge. They would be the bosses.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
