"Senator, I knew Jimi Hendrix, and that is not funny."

-A very serious woman in a book store at the mall. I have trouble believing that a US senator and a friend of Jimi Hendrix just happened to be in the same book store, but I know I didn't hear her wrong.

I know this doesn't technically qualify as something heard "in passing" but I couldn't help myself. It's a conversation between Sharon Osbourne and Gary Busey.

Gary: I wanted to invite you to my church...
Sharon: Oh really?
Gary: Yes, and afterwards we would get on horses and ride down this long road to the Dairy Queen and shout insults at anyone wearing zippers.

Blueberries for Sal? Anyone?
Submitted by MaeveEnRoute on Mon, 12/20/2004 - 6:00pm. Bizarre
"The word, ‘blueberries,’ it speaks of a fruit, but it speaks of much more, of the Lac St-Jean, of the summer cottage, of liberty and dripping juice, and also of the bears who from time to time come into the forest!"
- professor at the Université de Montréal


(Translated from:

"Le mot, ‘bleuets,’ça parle d’un fruit, mais ça parle aussi de beaucoup plus, du Lac St-Jean, du chalet, de la liberté et du jus qui coule, et aussi des ours qui viennent de temps en temps dans la forêt!" - in other words, no, it doesn't make any more sense in French.)
