You don't look like a Wolverine.

We, the bloggers of this blog, realize that our posts are woefully few and far-between. And it may seem that it's an indication that crazy things are not being said. Not true. We just don't get around to posting them very often, because we're too busy standing there with our mouths open. It's ok.

Elderly Pest-Control Guy: What kind of name is Taneeza? Where are you from, India?
Her: Born and raised in MI. 
Guy: You dont look like a wolverine. 
Her: Through and through... 
Guy: Why are you here ... in Sioux Falls?

Kid with Mom on the street: Are you nuns?
Us: No, we're Muslims.
Mom to kid: Oh, like your Grandma ____
Kid: You wear those jeebs
Us: I guess you could call it that, they are hijabs.
Kid: Oh yah, I have a short word for orange juice. I call it OJ!
Us: Yes, that's a good one!
We start walking away.

You people

Hijabi: It's really hot in our office. Can you turn the a/c on?
Property Manager: Your window faces south, so it's going to be hot.
H: Well, I already closed the blinds and it's still hot.
PM: It's probably because you people are always wearing those things.
