"So...any new developments?"
"Oh no, they're still closer than ever."
"Does that mean she hasn't tried to run him over lately?"

Heard at a TCBY in Des Moines, Iowa. The girls seemed stragely upset about the last comment. Those Iowa teenagers have some extreme ways to deal with anger...!

"I knew it was time to quit the modeling industry when someone told me sunglasses were this year's socks, and I knew exactly what he meant."

I actually found this one in a book at work (I was really, really bored. I played computer solitare for a solid hour...) Anyway, it was made by some random male model.

"Oh I *know*! Just like barbeque is the new ranch...!"

Two teenage girls in a midwest Perkins. What do you think, are they on to something here?
It's probably a good thing dads are clueless...

"How you feeling today, kiddo?"

"About the same as yesterday."

"I'm sure it was a mixture of physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. It's been a tough weekened for all of us."

"I think it was just cramps actually..."
Wiener is a funny word

"Of course the winning contestant will receive a year's supply of weiners and condiments, but the real reason they are competing today is for the chance to win the coveted (insert dramatized pause here) mustard yellow belt!"

--Commentator on the World Championship Hot Dog Eating Competition

So I'm thinking, what the hell kind of prize is that? After wolfing down over 50 hot dogs in 12 minutes, would you really want to see another hot dog? I also really enjoyed how they referred to hot dogs as wieners.

Person1 "Definitely. The level of patriotism increased a lot since the 311 attacks."



Person2 "You mean 9/11."

Person3 "Oh man, I was totally picturing the band like, smashing through the World Trade Center with their guitars..."

This was during those really deep conversations that usually take place at 2 am. I'm sure that explains a lot.
Ice Cream Truck Politics

"There's the reason for all the stuff that goes on in our country. I swear, ice cream trucks could solve *everything*...You're feeling down and outta nowhere this white truck with happy jingle music and a jolly little driver come towards you. And there are kids frolicking, and parents holding hands.The sun is shining and there's not a cloud in the sky. And just think, the truck could come twice a week, or maybe even three times. (takes a moment to picture this) This world would be a much happier place."

"...You should really stop lying to yourself, no one has ever heard of this guy."
"You've never heard of James Taylor?"
"No. You're probably making him up to get out of working. But I'll be the first to tell you, it's genius."
"Do you want to see the tickets?"
"Tickets? That *is* genius. You must have went through a lot of trouble making these...They look so realistic..."

Kids these days...geesh.

"Well, look at him. You can see his underwear. And his shirt is unbuttoned. He's showing his..."
"Washboard abs?"
"Yeah. I guess if I had some, I'd show them off too. But in your senior pictures?"
"I still want to get mine taken on a white couch in the middle of some woods. I think it'd be artistic."
"Maybe you could convince some woodland critters to pose with you. How's that for artistic?"
"'s all fun and games until some rabid squirrel bites your ankle."
