Overheard in DC

I love the "Overheard in D.C." segment on DCist. Cracks. Me. Up. Just the other day I heard "I can't be telling you "I love you" 27 hours a day!" Do we have a glut of these folks simply by virtue of being a slack-jawed yokel tourist hot spot or is this city a dummy-magnet? Any gems you've come across lately?

i laughed aloud [by myself!] while reading these.

working in a hospital, is sort of cheating - humor is everywhere!

on "no medical problems:"
a woman says nothing. no medical problems. no medications. no operations. so while listening to her heart i ask, "what's that?"
"oh, that's the scar from my open heart surgery. but i'm better now."

and of course there's always gastric reflux being called "asterisk reflex," irritable bowel [syndrome] as "girtle bowel," and my favorite: pneumonia being called "ammonia!"
