'And That Tall Animal With The Really Long Neck Is A Squirrel'

Overheard in the bathroom at the zoo:
Daughter: "Mommy, who is George Washington?"
Mommy: "Umm, he was like the 24th president or something."

Here's one I heard:

Random guy at bus stop: Do you paint your toenails black because you're into witchcraft??

Girl: *Sideway "WTH" look* Ummmm....no..........et mens et manus a priori *random jumbled latin phrases*

It's really too bad that some Americans never paid attention to their social studies classes the 1st grade. This is our history we're talking about!

Good blog. One thing that bugs me about blogger is that they only feature blogs that have a concept behind them. Mine doesnt have a concept, I just sort of talk about what I think. Guess thats why nobody reads it.

This makes me more than a little sad for the future of the human race.

When I lived in DC I was once passing the White House and overheard the following:

Son: So what's this building Dad?
Father: This is where congress meets.
Son: So where does the president live?
Father (pointing to Capitol Hill): He lives up there, in that big domed building at the end of the street.

I was speechless.
