On a daily basis, people say a load of ridiculous phrases. Things you overhear without context, things that stick with you that for some reason you don't forget.
One of my roommates recently overheard one college girl say to another, "Why are we showering?" out of context. My roommate has no idea what the girls were talking about for the one to pose her question.
To capture moments like these, my roommates and I created a "Quote Wall" for our room, on a giant slab of a chalkboard sign. There, we record the entertaining phrases we say to each other and sayings we've overheard from others. We've nearly filled it up in under four months.
Reading through the quotes written on there always puts smiles on our faces and laughter bellowing in our guts. As a piece of comical entertainment, I thought I'd share some of the highlights.
