Overheard in NY

If you are down and need to laugh a bit, check out Overheard in NY. I could read it all day… Here’s one from today’s batch of things overheard in NYC…

Hang On, Eggs Come from Animals?

Girl #1: Is egg dairy? Is that what they’re discussing?
Girl #2: Are they saying egg is meat?
Girl #1: I think it’s in the meat category.
Girl #2: Nooo.
Girl #1: I’m looking for a pyramid… Eggs are in the meat category, and it comes from an animal.
Girl #2: So does milk, though.
Girl #1: An egg can turn into a meat. Milk cannot.
Girl #2: Okay, I’m not discussing this anymore.

–44th & Broadway

Cheap Sex! Cupcakes! The Guillotine!

Lady: What are you all waiting for?
26th guy in line for iPhone: The new Harry Potter book.
27th guy in line: Shrek 4.
28th guy in line: Free crack. [Lady walks away.]

–AT&T store, Union Square

Especially Since They Had to Keep Pausing to Fight the Dinosaurs

Bimbette #1: … And the pyramids! It’s like, you know, a total miracle! They’re huge! How did they build them without modern day cranes and stuff?
Bimbette #2: Yeah, I know, it’s… mystical! And the same thing with Eiffel Tower. I went to Paris last year, and that thing is just so high! Really, how did they manage to build something like that without equipment?!

–Museum of Natural History

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.

  1. Here’s another one:


    …And Added Some Strychnine To Her Birth Control Pills

    Pharmacist: You should probably re-sign your card.
    Woman: Why?
    Pharmacist: Well, you signed over the magnetic strip. You’re supposed to sign over the white part down here.
    Woman: Then how would the machine read my signature? That doesn’t make any sense.
    Pharmacist: No, it’s a magnetic strip. It reads the information, not the signature.
    Woman: I don’t think you know what you’re talking about. That’s not how the machines work. You’re a pharmacist, not an electrician.

    Then the pharmacist gave up.

    –Zitomer, 76th & Madison
