Living abroad I heard the dumbest things.
Was once asked if by some tourists if they were on the island beside Cuba. I was sitting on a beach on the pacific side of Costa Rica.
The stories get better.
One day I am out surfing and chilling on the break waiting for the next set.
Tourist – hey! There’s broccoli floating here!
Me – yea that’s sea broccoli.
Tourist – no way dude.
Me – Yup. Grows on the reef. You can go at really low tides and pick it.
Tourist – Wow. That’s cool.
Me – Try it. It’s salty and tastes just like broccoli.
Tourist – (bites into it) Yea dude! It’s like salty broccoli!
Me – Enjoy
Next day. I am out surfing and see the same guy. At the exact same moment a piece of pineapple floats by and I pick it up.
Me – (looks at guy) Yo dude! Look. Sea Pineapple.
Tourist – Fuck off
