34 of the Funniest One-Liners Delivered by Random Strangers

Some of the funniest words come from random strangers you will never see again. Maybe they’re aware that you’re merely two ships passing in the night and want to give you a bizarre memento to remember them by, like the old man who said, “You’re gonna be a dog one day.” What did he mean by that? What mystical secrets does he know?

jimcol . 4y Okay, the laughter was not entirely inside, but years ago on the subway in NY, a crazy dude walks on the train and screams at everyone You're all going to hell! and then steps off as the doors close. Total silence as the weirdness of the moment settles in. Then, without missing a beat, guy across from me goes, Shit, I thought this train was going to Harlem. Entire subway car of cynical New Yorkers bursts out laughing. ... 17.3k

 4y ... I was at a 50th wedding anniversary party and there were LOTS of elderly people in attendance. An old man was standing next me and said it looks like a fucking grave yard in here.

walnut100 . 4y The time I was waiting for takeout and the amputee owner struck up a convo. My friend, you have to be really careful if you ever get shot in the knee or any leg bone.

I_Ace_English . 4y You and your sister look exactly alike! My sister was adopted from Asia. I'm so white I freckle instead of tan.

etaporra 4y I was crossing the street once and my sunglasses fell off my shirt directly to the floor. I just realized it happened after I got to the other side of the street and my mom pointed it out. The closest car was pretty far away, but I was still very anxious about it, ran back to the middle of the street, tried to grab it but I was so nervous it fell out of my hands two times before i finally got it and ran to the other side of the street again. The car finally reached us,
