    Overheard in Passing

    I like catching parts of conversations out of context. Here's two I caught recently.

    2 guys, 20ish walking down the street:

    "Dude, I totally partied with Yo Yo Ma."

    Not sure if he was bragging about hanging with a celloist or had a stutter and was trying to insult the other guy's mother.

    A group of girls, 20s:

    "If that's true then why don't all Mexicans have butthole cancer?"

    No idea what fact she was trying to refute with that theory.

    Anyone else care to share?
    What was the best concert you've been to?

    "Probably Sade. It was just so sexy and relaxing."

    My overheard in passing is pretty boring so far today:

    Sorority Girl: You asshole!

    That's about it.

    Crazy guy on a bus: "Can't save the family..."

    He said this maybe 15-20 times while rocking back and forth. Raises a lot more questions than it answers.

    Re: Overheard in Passing

    I've tweeted a few recently:

    One, I was leaving my office and heard a guy on his cell phone trying to boost someone's confidence / talk them off a ledge with an inspirational "anything's possible" speech, yet his sentence structure wasn't so hot: "If you want to be United States President of America, you can do that."

    Another was on a bus in Seattle in April, where an obnoxious crazy woman said, "Call me superficial. Call me shallow. I hate a nigga with ugly teeth."

    My all-time favorite: when I was in college, I was on the Green Line and there was a guy with long blondish hair and a beard nearby. This black guy takes one look at him and says to his friend, "My man frontin' like he Jesus."

    Walking back to my apartment I heard one guy who as in his early twenties ask his buddy "Hey man, remember last night that girl was really drunk who came home with me?"

    Three young Hispanic teenagers were walking down the street in Brooklyn. One says "We're studying the Holocaust in school. Hitler was like the worst guy ever."

    Re: Overheard in Passing

    At a cafe recently I heard a woman dominating a conversation during what seemed like an internet-established first date. I caught 2 great lines:

    "I think of myself as a Pisces almost as intensely as I think of myself as an American, or white, or as a female."

    "Salads to me just seem like a lot of work without a lot of...tasteness." [sic]

    Overhead this once on the quad outside of my dorm.

    Guy 1: Dude, I'm JUST like Bilbo Baggins!
    Guy 2: Nah man, you're just that hobbit who brews beer all day in the Shire.

    i hope this thread proves popular enough that it has an offshoot featuring only things you hear in public restrooms called "overheard in pissing."
    "This is not the Beach Boys. It can't be. Why? No beach songs! I thought it was some kind of joke. All 'Pet Sounds' offers is the opportunity to hear Brian Wilson whine for forty minutes, backed by elevator music. There's barely any Mike Love on the album at all."

    Re: Overheard in Passing

    I also found a list of some of the crazy things one of my professors from last year said. Here are some of them.

    "Did you know cat's smell their owner's mustaches? What? They do!"

    "When you're reincarnated, make sure you're careful which rear end you pick."

    "I hate grass. It's the most tight-assed thing you could have on your lawn."

    "Clinton was an Aquarius. He loved to be stroked. Aquariuses loved to be stroked."

    "I shouldn't be telling you this. But Glen's thesis adviser told us he could move the fridge across the room with his penis."
