Every now and then I get asked questions which are just, somehow, surreal - you have to check to make sure someone's not nearby with a hidden video camera. What are the strangest questions you've ever been asked? Mine are:
Have you ever seen your own jawbone?
(Asked by my dentist in the middle of a complicated extraction. Yes, and followed by a demonstration with a mirror.)
How many penguins would you like on that?
(Asked in a dry cleaning establishment, in regards to cleaning my best business suit. Turns out the "penguins" were a measure of the delicacy of the procedure.)
Excuse me, did you happen to lose your snake?
(Asked as I was walking down a path in a park. Someone had just seen one crossing the path, and for some reason thought it belonged to me.)
