    Such as..."How do you know that you are you?" or "Do you have the same Dad?"

    when I once mentioned a brothel she said 'Isn't that the place where they give out soup to the homeless?'. She's wonderful.
    Wow.

    Hmm... This is the best exchange I can think of.

    American woman (walking ahead of me, I didn't know her): "What's an ironmonger?"
    Me: Someone who mongs iron.
    Her: Really? That some kooky English phrase?

    It makes me laugh :rolleyes:

    Ok, so I wear glasses and have(relatively) short hair. I'm also fat and wear large clothes. Not butch, really, Just "not feminine" according to 99% of the male population >.>

    So i go inot this metal bar at about midnight and there's this 30something drunk metalhead I've never seen before
    "hey, you"
    "yeah"
    "no matter how ugly you make yourself, I'll still see you as a chick"
    "...right"
    "no really/. Why do you chop off your hair and wear glasses? act like a girl, dammit"
    "..."
    "so, really now, are you a lesbian?"
    "oh yes, the **** is for sluts. i love them titties"

    And proceed to go to my usual table. he talks and talks for about an hour about how I'm ruining the life of every chick I talk to and will, eventually end up in the ****. like, literally.

    Also in that bar, this random guy shows up
    "You know, you may be ugly, you may be dumb, you may be sexist, you may have small tits, you may be fat and goddamit you're ugly, but I love you".

    When I was on the train once, a homeless guy came and sat next to me and started holding my hand. I was like 'mmmm ok...' and didn't have the courage to take it away. He was about 30, maybe and started asking if I would adopt him, like really trying to convince me to (I was 17, maybe 18 at the time...). Bless him, he obviously had some psychological issues, but it was definitely one of the most random things anyone's ever asked me.

    'You must be some sort of antichrist!!' he said it like really accusingly and loud and pointed at me, people looked!

    I was playing basketball at a basketball park with some friends. We decided to have a break and I wanted to get some food across the road at the news agents. I bought a sandwich and there was a granny standing next to me at the till.
    She then proceeded to say:"Oh my, that's a big one!" whilst looking at my sandwich.

    What are you supposed to do in a situation like that?
    DUH, she's making a pass at you. The British response is to thrust your penis into the crisp rack.

    I mention my Father once to someone and they replied "I did not think of you as the kind of person who would have a father."
    This has happened to me before! I was saying something about my Dad and she goes 'WHAT? You have a Dad?' I said 'Why wouldn't I have a Dad' and she said 'I dunno, you just don't look like the Dad type' lol. Another person I've spoke to before was surprised I 'had' a Dad. Maybe it's because in that same meeting I spontaneously burst out into 'Food, Glorious Food!'


    On the topic of strange things, today a friend was vigorously insisting that there were more Muslims than any other religion in the UK..

    Once a man sat opposite me on the bus and said 'I've just got out of prison. Ten years. ****ing horrific mate. I think you know what I mean. What's life like these days? Can I borrow just a couple of quid?' I scarpered.

    Haha, all the time. You can have great fun with her, because she believes anything you tell her as well. Ah, she's the best!

    I am that 'dumb' friend I once tried to withhold my telephone number from the police, after phoning them from my mobile, by using 141. Needless to say it didn't work and when I told my friend about it and how confused I was that I couldn't do it even though people called up anonymously on The Bill all the time she explained to me that it was done by using a public phone box and not leaving your name

    In the same call I also tried to cut the policewoman off by telling her I was running out of credit and that she'd have to hurry up. I then hung up on her and she phoned back. Again it had to be my friend who reminded me that calling the police was free.

    Strangest thing someones ever said to me is the random guy who walked up to me in the street and told me to stop stealing the fish from Sainsburys. Then there was the drunk man who asked me to go 'mattress hopping' with him. Not sure if that was a euphemism or not..

    A girl in my G.C.S.E geography class, thought Japan was in the Caribbean, and didn't know where that was either. And she thought Australia was next to Paris...... She also thought Norway was the capital of Sweden

    Needless to say, she failed miserably.

    Oh, and I used to get asked strange stuff all the time when i worked as a guide at Longleat House. E.g. "Are you one of Lord Bath's wifelets?" (surrrre, because I work there I *must* be...) and "are these paintings old?" (it's an Elizabethan stately home...)

    And once, this little boy came into the nursery room at Longleat House and said, "mummy, is this where Jesus was born?" :rofl:
