"Do you study kung-fu?"

...*shaking head*

How 'bout you guys? Strangest thing you've ever been told while spinning or about your playing?

Posted:I was spinning for some friends of mine near a lake and in an apartment complex across the lake some guy was yelling stuff like "Quit it! That's annoying!" Methinks he was drunk (as it was a Saturday night and I was near a college)...

Posted:After a small accident while beating out a new move left me with a small, hickey-like bruise on the base of my neck, hilarity ensued the next morning as people inquired about it. The best, however, came from my mother, who showed the strangest concern after I admitted that I'd never hit my neck before and often ended up clipping myself in the arms, hips, shoulders, or boobies when trying to work a new move out.

"DON'T DO THAT! You have to be really careful or you'll do permanent damage to your breasts! I'm serious!"






*facepalm*

This, from the woman who told me when I was younger that thongs give you yeast infections.

hate to tell you but thongs (as in the underware) do increase your risk dramaticaly of getting a yeast infection.

ubblol No, she seriously meant you would instantly get a yeast infection from a thong. Not like a slow, progressive trend or a marked increase in statistical probability. Just "you're assuredly going to get one."

Kind of like when guidance and health staff in high schools try desperately to convince teens to practice abstinance because your genitals are going to instantly rot and fall off if you even get a little frisky on prom night.

Lol. Every high school does that. Ours just also took it a step further by following that discussion up with having one of the local detectives come up and display photo after photo of grosteque auto accidents caused by driving drunk. Mmm.... right before lunch.







But this is getting mighty off topic of me, so here's one of those quotes again. While waiting out the dead of January, a friend of mine were truly hammered on New Years. He kept trying to convince me to spin sometime that winter for him, and I kept drunkenly arguing about the cold. His response:



"Y'know, you could always spin shirtless. That would be hot."



rolleyes Men. Can't live with 'em, but it's just no fun to live without 'em.

Posted:Alright, mine was moreso a punchline from a hilarious spinning adventure, which is thus:



I was spinning poi in the ferry terminal (before they banned my ass from doing that...unsafe to the public apparently) and I heard this couple talking behind me. I heard the guy audibly say "Yeah, I can do that". I shot him a wicked grin, handed over my poi, and said "Go for it! Let's see what you can do!". This man was in his forties, and the icing on the cake- this was infront of his girlfriend.



There were around 10 people in the terminal at this point, all of them started watching this guy horribly attempt at spinning my ultra poi with tails. After around 3 times of him sacking himself, and me laughing to the point of tears, as well as the rest of the "audience" busting a gut, he shamefully handed my poi back to me. One of the spectators said to the dude, "Man, I was having a horrible day, but watching that just brightened me right back up. Thanks!"



This is the kicker:



His girlfriend goes up to me, and says, "Alright. Two things. Number one, that was very entertaining. Number two, you really shouldn't have your underwear hang out like that (they were my long johns, which I gleefully explained to her but disregarded), and you should really shave your armpits"



I didn't know whether to be shocked, insulted, or just plain amused, so I went with the latter. By the end of the ferry ride, the couple were no longer talking and on opposite sides of the craft. Heh. Oops.

Posted:Well, I wasn't actually spinning, just walking over a bridge carrying my staff (its got white and blue paint on it - I mention this for reasons that just *might* become apparent) with my friend beside me. Some random passenger in a car passing by leaned out of the window and shouted:

"Hey man, where did you get the stick? A toilet shop?"

Random laughter ensued from inside the car which passed on leaving me ... well, mystified.
My staff is a good 150cm if not slightly more, I'm not sure what he expected me to be doing going anywhere near a toilet with it.


It was only two or three days later that I suddenly thought "toilet shop"?
What the hell is a toilet shop?


This is a signature.
Read it, and be amazed at my wit.

Posted:i know a guy who uses the word 'poi-chi-master' (repeatedly) when i'm spinning

"your a poi-chi-master, i'm a poi-chi-master!"
