Midwestern Eavesdropping - 4/5/07

Here it is:

Male #1 to Male #2, discussing the fact that Male #1 hooked up with Male #2's wife's twin sister: "I've seen your wife naked."
--Chicago, Cans, 1640 N. Damen
Eavesdroppers: GMYH, RDC

Sixtysomething rotund female court clerk, to an attorney: "What's your number? (pause for a couple seconds) Show me your thing."
--Chicago, Daley Center, Clark & Randolph, Courtroom 1104
Eavesdropper: GMYH

Twentysomething male at a bar: "Dude, I'm the best thumb wrestler ever."
--Lisle, IL, The Lodge
Eavesdropper: Matthew Spring

Bitter 26-year-old, discussing some dude who just snorted a shot of tequila: "That guy's hair looks alarmingly like my bike helmet."
--Chicago, Cans, 1640 N. Damen
Eavesdropper: GMYH

A swarm of people surrounding a booth:
Sweater Guy: "Hey, my brother works for you in Dallas!"
Mark Cuban: "Really? I love your brother!" (hugs Sweater Guy)
--Bloomington , IN, Kilroy's Sports Bar, Walnut & 8th

Eavesdropping: RobD

Fiftysomething female instructor, nonchalantly in the middle of class: "I belonged to a cult for a brief period of time in New York."
--Chicago, Second City Training Center, North & Wells
Eavesdropper: GMYH

Cook County Circuit Court Judge, to old woman who was a bit lippy: "I don't want to throw a 90-year-old woman in jail, but I will."
--Chicago, Daley Center, Clark & Randolph, Courtroom 1104

Eavesdropper: GMYH

Here's another one that's not technically eavesdropping, but still pretty funny:
Text from Tron to GMYH at the beginning of the Florida/Ohio State game: "I met the worst possible person to watch this game with (or just in life), a Purdue grad from Ohio."

Thanks to everyone who contributed. As always, if you overhear something hilarious, email it to, and I will put it on the next installment of Midwestern Eavesdropping.

As much as I don't want to succumb to the 26-year-old-male's bitterness, I call bullshit on RobD.

GMYH said...

Actually Mark Cuban does come back to IU all the time and does go out to the bars. Gregerson, what are you doing up at 4:24am?

RDC said...

I bet the answer involves Red Bulls, Vodka, and The Vu

The Bitter One is all knowing. I have decided to start the "Summer of Gregerson" a little early.
