Best Question Ever From A Random Stranger
So I'm standing in downtown Seattle, and this guy walks up and asks me "Hey, where's a coffeeshop?"

I'm not making that up. I have a witness.

1. it's funny for two reasons
1) it is freakin' Seattle

2) you're MrCoffee. you must ooze the stuff outta your pores or something.

me: mmmm. what's that smell?

you: It is my latest scent Aromatic MrCoffee blend.

it's pheromones to the addicted.

5. maybe he was blind...
that would hold true for either not being able to see the coffeeshops or for hitting on me.

7. Hmmm.... almost as good as...
... being overheard by a fellow Brit (I live in Denmark), the person in question then coming over to ask me "excuse me, but is there anywhere I can get some cheese around here?" whilst I am standing just outside a big, very pungent, shop called "Ost" (danish for cheese), holding a bag with some cheese in it, with a big picture of a cheese printed on the outside....

.... I've always wanted to credit them with a slightly "Monty Python" take on the whole situation - but I really rather think that from the ensuing conversation, flushing of the face and his acute embarassment as I pointed out the shop to him, that they were, actually (tragically) serious...

He does stuff like that all the time.
