Stupidest question you have ever been asked and how you answered

I had 4 pallets of shingles delivered on friday and had a party on saturday.
six people asked me, "Are you having a new roof put on". After the third person asked, my answer was:

"No, I have a shingle collection. I'm getting 4 more pallets delivered on Monday". "Some are very rare, would you like to see them?"

So what are you cooking for the party? I can look at shingles all day if the food is any good!

Well... I've been 6'6" tall since I was 13 years old so I've heard a lot of comments and questions over the years from people who speak without thinking.

Probably the dumbest question and certainly the one asked most frequently has been "How's the weather up there". I can't share my standard answer word for word here on the forum () but in very general terms, it suggests that they make a call up here to find out.

At work we have 10 foot partition walls with the top 30 inches being glass. On a 30 foot long wall after removing 10 feet of it, one of the workers in that area asked, "Are you taking down the wall?"
"No, the glass is to high to wash so we have to send the walls out to have them cleaned..."
Here's your sign.

The one I always liked was the guy sitting on a newspaper on the subway and a man asking if he was reading the paper, he said of course I am, stood up and turned the page and sat back down.

While at the Grand Canyon this year I over heard a tourist ask a ranger what time sunrise was, as they would like to photograph it. The ranger gave the answer of 6:15, the tourist replied that was too early for them and then inquired if there was a later time.

My wife has a twin brother and people, including medical professionals,
are always asking, "Are you identical twins?"
She is a much nicer person than I am, so she usually just smiles and
says, "No, he has outdoor plumbing and I have indoor."
I think a simple reply like, "No, he has a (male organ).", but she is too
polite to say that.



One of my favorites to do is when someone asks, "Do you know what time it is?", I look at my watch and reply only, "Yes."
Then they just look kind of stumped and finally ask if I will tell them, which I do....

At Banff National Park a park ranger was apparently asked by a tourist "How do you get the water in the lake so blue?"
The park ranger replied " We took the water out and painted the bottom blue."

I learned at a young age to NEVER ask a woman if she is pregnant, unless
you can actually see the baby exiting the birth canal...

We spend winters in Caribbean Mexico. When it comes up in conversation people frequently say, "Is it nice where you go?"

An annoying patron at the bar ordered the barista to call him a cab. "O.K. you're a cab" and walked away. I near pithed myself laughing.
