Guy (holding up packs of underwear): So what do you think, grey, or colored patterns?
Girl: I'm not sure I'm feeling the grey.
Guy: Really? I think grey goes well my skin tone better, personally.
Girl: You're not seriously talking about trying to match your underwear to your skin tone, are you?
Guy: Missy, if you're allowed to color-coordinate your bra and panties, I'm allowed to make sure my underwear doesn't clash with my skin palette!

Discussing school boards...

Man 1: "Well, the state controls salaries and hours... there's really not much left for them to decide. of course someone jokingly suggested the color of the school buses."

Word of the day toilet paper, anyone?

Dork: "So I think that's what happened. It probably just didn't get much use over the interregnum...."
Chick: "Wait, did you just say "interregnum"?"
Dork: "Yeah, 'interregnum.' It means a break or pause in a chain of continuous events....

Thank God the Allies Got the Bomb First...Those Germans Were Innovative!

During The Good Shepherd: In a scene during World War II in Berlin, a lady leaves her large clunky hearing-aid on a nightstand. The camera zooms in on it. An entire scene unfolds after that, all hinged on that hearing aid.

Many minutes later, a girl a few seats down whispers loudly:"Wait. What was that? Was that an iPod and her Bluetooth?"

Everyone's a little bit racist today

Gay 1 (DC local): "So, what's the gay life like out there as compared to here?"

Gay 2 (DC transplant to some midwestern state): "Actually, it's got more, like, hot guys who are genuinely nice. Not like the namby-pamby types here."

Gay 1: "Ah, I see."

Gay 2: "Yeah, and they're all white. There's only like 3 black in the whole town."

Gay 1: Very nice.
