Today was Random Question Question Day, and one of the many questions we asked was, 'What's the dumbest question anyone has ever asked you?'
This is part of what we heard...
Stupid questions: A few years ago a friend of mine was a maintenance man on gathering of the Space Needle. He got the nickname "Halo Man" and he was featured on television sometimes. And the stupidest question anyone ever asked him? "Did you ever fall off?"
Was asked if a salt water fish can be trained to live in fresh water because salt water aquariums are expensive when I worked at Petco in college.
I've sent this in before but I was going to be in Greece during the 4th of july and a former co worker asked what they do to celebrate the holiday over there. I just shook my head and said they go to work dumbass because the 4th is an american holiday.
My wife and I were at the beach and she asked how come it was so windy if there are no trees.
My old band mate..woman. Also an escort.. asked "if I eat a banana and a slim fast and swallow semen..will I get enough protein?"
A friend of mine worked for Glacier National Park, she swears somebody once asked her at what elevation do deer become elk.
Dumbest question I've ever been asked was when discussing Sarah Palin my wife asked me "She's the governor of Canada right?"
The dumbest question I ever heard was, what day is New year's on this year.
Worked in Olympic National Park by the ocean. Some dumb questions were: what time do the eagles come out? What lake is that?(the ocean) Do the logs get put there by the log trucks? Why can't you kill the mice? Can we buy a shovel to dig up plants to take home? We are going to collect crab off the beach for dinner. Why is it raining? (It's a rainforest)
I'm not sure how to feel after reading these. Part of me got a good belly chuckle... but also I lost faith in the human race. Ah well, it's a good excuse to drink.
To be fair, years ago I was in a car with 3 or 4 other people looking out at the landscape. We were at that point where the desert starts mixing with brush and I commented that it reminded me of Army camo. Yup.
OK, I'm outta here. Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!
