This involved three people.
Girl 1: I hate not being able to eat dairy!
Girl 2: You could always use soy, soy is good...
Random (EMO) boy walking by: Soy is a LIE!
Girl 2: what?
Random (EMO) boy walking by: I had a soy latte and I thought it was supposed to be healthy, but it was like 600 calories.... (walks away)
Girl 1: *snickers* I bet he was up all night throwing up to get rid of it too....
as i was sitting in my dorm (u of m, middlebrook) one night writing a paper, i heard these guys down the hall engaging in normal video game conversation. i wasn't lucky enough to catch the context, but then one of the guys asked the other:
"hey, dude, what if god
talked to you through halo?
and i almost cried.
This one is via my mom, who was studying in the dining hall at Luther Seminary (which, while technically in St. Paul, is very close). It's from a group of about six retired, old pastors who have lunch together once a week:
Man One: I didn't think you were coming?
Man Two: Well, of course I'm coming. Whatever made you think I wouldn't come?
Man One: Well, Arvid told me you wouldn't be here?
Man Two: (agitated) What the hell does Arvid know? When have you ever known Arvid to know anything?
Man One: Well, I don't know. He just told me you weren't coming.
Man Two: (increasingly more agitated) Well, I sure as hell can go sit somewhere else if you don't want me sitting here with you all. Is that what you want?
Man One: No, no, no! Sit down, don't get so upset.
Man Three: Who's Arvid?
man comes up to talk to some kids on the other side of the bar seating.
man: hey kids, arent you out a bit late?
kid: no. its not late.
man: but youre out without parental supervision!
kid: its seven.
man (looks down at tape recorder he his holding) so it is. (leaves).
Kid 1:"...and on the back of the paper, it says where all the soup kitchens are."
Kid 2:"Ooh! There's this really good one on Eat Street!"
Kid 1:"Um... I don't think you're thinking of a soup kitchen..."
Kid 2:"Isn't it a place that sells soup?"
--on the bus.
As this is the first thing to be posted, there are a few more things to be mentioned. Posts should always have where they were heard. If you know who said these things, dont say who it is, you wouldn't someone doing that to you. Even if you don't care, if you do try to say someone's name, your comment will not be posted. If you are
the person you said one of the quotes on this site, think of it this way: you're perhaps brightening someone's day.

hey guys, its Andrew. Chris and I decided to make an overheard in minneapolis because we started hearing things that we thought was funny. the thing is, we want to hear more funny stuff too, and we only have four ears. if you hear something funny that is said in minnesota (preferable minneapolis) tell us! please note: IMPROV A GO GO ZINGS DO NOT
rules are simple:
1. keep it anonymous. if you hear something, even if you know the people's names, dont use them. the one exception is if the names are said in the quote, then you may. use labels such as "man" "guy" "woman" "girl" "kid" "student" "businessman/woman" ect.
2. in conjunction with NO improv a go go quotes, if you hear someone tell a joke, and the quote is only funny because its a joke, dont use it. if the quote has a joke in it, but is funny because of who is saying it, then its fine.
