OK, everyone. Per last night's brainstorm at Dave's, we're starting a new discussion called "Overheard."
Reply to this string, with title as in this message, whenever you hear something too good to pass up. Attribution is required.
If we get enough, I'll add 'em to a cycler like the taglines on the home page.
Here's one to start us off:

(To Zach) "You can have your Tupperware back when you give me my crockpot. Wait... I can't believe I just said that."
-- Dan

re: Overheard
I think December was a little more equivocable than that! Didn't she say "At this time, I won't shoot babies?" Leaving the option open for another time? ;)

I thought my mishearing was more appropriate than the actual comment. After all, what did the cat do it irritate you?

To set some context, we were playing cards...

re: Overheard
OK, OK. Ha ha. But I thought this one was much funnier out of context:

Annette: That wasn't very nice!
David: Well, you teleported a zombie right onto me
Annette: Oh, I'll do worse than that!

The teletubby just killed the green lantern.

Ive always wanted to do this to you Grant now stand still. (David)

Im OK, I can quit anytime I want.

If you shoot somebody and they yell at you then they are on your team.

Every time&I keep turning into a teletubby even if I dont want to.

You might not want to just stand against the wall smoking cigarettes.

I dont even know how to get away from wherever I am.

Stand still so I can shoot you.

I wish I could have killed Paul a couple of times and Yoda too.

Overheard at Grant's LAN party last year.

re: Overheard
Not certain if this is exactly correct, but it's the gist of the statement.
"I'm looking for a woman who can carry an entire pig on her shoulders. Not one of those small pet pigs, either. More like a 900 pounder." --Dave Bowler
ROUS  Dan Banham, Wednesday, 1-19-11 4:14 PM
re: Overheard
I think it was Lisa who made the original statement about a woman who can carry an entire pig on her shoulders, and Dave said, "Are you saying I should add it to my list of [dating] requirements?"

Although this could certainly refer to me, I believe I have to attribute the quote to Dave Bowler.
