Holy shit. Some of these are insane. Well, MY cases aren't that bad. But most definately weird. Like how we met two people claiming to be celebreties, and my sister almost getting sold in exchange for a camel when on a vacation in Egypt.
I think I was 12 or something at the time. Me, my parents and my sis (16 years) went into this little shop where they sold statuettes of Egyptian Gods. Pretty interesting for me, since I like mythology a lot. And all of a sudden, the salesman goes "Mah name ish Eddy Murrrrrrrphy," making a big deal out of rolling on the R. We just nodded. When we left, he poked my sister on her shoulder. "You got boyfriend?" The guy was… 30+ methinks.
She quickly made up a boyfriend.
"Ooooh, you have brrrrrrroken my hearrrrrt."
Soooo yeah. Off we went.
A couple of days later we were taking an egyptian bus to downtown of the town we were living in at that time (forgot the name). And, I tell ya, egyptian traffic is insane. Anyhow, suddenly, the driver asks where we're from. So of course, we answer Denmark. Then he starts laughing, and claims to be Bill Clinton. My dad was getting a little tired of these celebrities, so he said he was Indiana Jones.
That made the driver laugh. Enough for him to forget to steer properly. We're lucky nothing happened.
THEN at downtown, my sister wantedto buy a wooden giraffe. This was probably just a joke between my dad and the salesman, but it was still hella weird. As you might know, haggling is quite common in Egypt, so off we go, haggling about the price. At first, his price was INSANELY high. Sis keeps dropping it down, and my dad decides to help her. After a while, I could hear that appearently, my sister was being traded for a camel or five. Then we paid for the goddamn giraffe and left.
What else... well, I got a weird friend back home whom we call "Fish". He doesn't mind, he prefers being called that. Actually, in a music club, when our names were being read, he stood up and said "Well, my name is Fish, but my parents call me Rasmus." And I just laughed my head off.
He wasn't weird in his head, he just had a really weird sense of humor. Like how he EVERY DAY when going home from school purposedly walked face first into a sign. And when he and some friends recorded each other and pointing at a street for about 30 seconds. And recording one of them rolling DOWN a hill and the other trying to roll back up.
So... yeah. XD
