Two rather crude delights from Overheard in New York:

First, a small difference:

Man: I just don’t get it! Just last night you were complaining about how you never try anything new, but you feel like you should.

Woman: Ok, well ordering the roast duck is a little different than a threesome, Tim.

–13th & 3rd

Damn those faulty analogies!

Second, too damn perfect:

Guy: I was seeing her for a while, but it just wasn’t working out. I guess I’m not over Jessica.

Girl: What?

Guy: What do you mean, what?

Girl: I thought you were gay.

Guy: Oh, because I’m a hairdresser. How original. Just because I’m a hairdresser you think I’m gay.

Girl: No. I thought you were gay because when I stayed at your house four years ago I woke up and saw you fucking Matt in the ass!

Guy: Oh my God. Matt and I have never talked about that night.

–9th & B

I loved the title: “The Fallacy of Insufficient Sample Size.” Damn those hasty generalizations!
