Overheard: Making Rainbows

Every week, CC and John bring you some of the weirdest, funniest, saddest things he hears on his college campus. Join the Overheard revolution!Leave your own overheard convos in the comments or send ‘em over!

(Two students, hunched over books in Starbucks.)

Girl 1: Pith. That means ‘courage,’ right? Like ‘full of pith and vinegar’?

Girl 2: I think that’s ‘piss and vinegar.’

Girl 1: I guess I’ve only heard it said by gay pirates.

(Old people sitting down in a restaurant.)

Old Lady: Oh, in my industry, we only have one joke. Customers ask, ‘Which vacuum is the best?’ And I say, ‘Oh, they all suck.’ Ha!  Ha ha ha!

Other old people: Ha ha ha!

(Two guys, reading the comics in a drugstore.)

Guy 1: Wait, do cars even have edible underwear?

Guy 2: I think it’d be more like an edible hat.

(Girls studying math in the library.)

Girl 1: … So you just do your FOIL and multiply out.

Girl 2: I don’t get it! I don’t know how to do math.

Girl 1: You know, first, then outer, then the inner, then last?

Girl 2: Oh! You mean making rainbows!

(Two boys, sitting on the couch at a party.)

Boy: Oh my god, I love your cat! She looks just like Michelle Pfeiffer!

(Two girls, jogging on treadmills at the gym.)

Girl 1: You have to scoop! Scoop your tummy! Scoop your butt!

Girl 2: I’m sorry! I can’t stop thinking about ice cream!

(Girl, looking at DVDs in Blockbuster.)

Girl: Someone get the stunt boobs! I gotta do some boob stunts!

(Guy and girl, sitting in the back of a campus bus.)

Girl: It’s pulled by a team of invisible unicorns.

Guy: And rocket boosters!

Girl: No! You’ll kill them!

(Girl, on the phone in a grocery store.)

Girl: Are you serious? Right in the middle of the aisle? … Someone must have done it on purpose! I mean, poop from a human?

(Research meeting, at an outdoor picnic table.)

Professor: So we just need one more name.

Student: How about something ethnic, like “Moron.”
