Surreal Like Dali With a Side of Absinthe
A friend pointed me to Overheard In Minneapolis, which is insane in its own right, but if you go to Overheard Around The World, it gets even better. It's like the cheapest, least unhealthy trip ever. I am particularly fond of this entry from Overheard In New York:
You Always Hertz the One You Love
Thug on cell: Yo, hearse rent a car? Yo man, I need to rent a hearse. Yeah, I'll hold. (pause) Y'all don't rent no hearses? Why y'all call yoselfs hearse rent a car? (pause) Word? Well, I need to move a body, maybe you got a van or something? (pause) I don't care, I just need to move his dead ass. (pause) Cargo van? Whatever. Yeah.
Thug's friend: Ask if they got am'blances.
--Grand Concourse, 158 St
I'm still laughing, because my sense of humor is felonious. See? Surrealism.
