Reading some of the latest posts to "Turn the mirrors round to face the wall" reminded me of what someone once asked me.
A member of my family once asked me,"is the moon the sun at night?"
No,it wasn't said tongue in cheek either.And it was an adult.
So whats the silliest thing youv'e been told or asked.
Can it be any stupider than mine?

I work in a bookmakers and Grand National day is still by far the best day for for silly questions.

The sillest question I have ever been asked on that day was:-

A Lady customer
What time does the National start?

About 3:45

And what time does it finish?

You weren't asked it, you read it.

Do we seem to have a lot of Newby idiots around at the moment, or is it me?

No,but it sounds like mr grumpy needs his bed.
I remember doing a sweepstake for the Bruno v tyson fight at work many years ago.
I told one work mate that the winner gets £26.
He replied,"whats second prize?".

Due to recent illmess, I was visiting the hospital daily.

On my last visit, a nurse (bear in mind I was sitting in a wheelchair, holding cotton wool against my arm due to bloods being taken, and my left leg up on a stool) Asked me if I was a patient!

I said, "No, I just get into a wheelchair and come to watch"

She vanished, and did not appear again prior to my departure....All others on the ward cracked up laughing.

On holiday in Florida I was asked if the shining thing in the night time sky was the moon, I replied that I didn't know because I did not live in Florida normally.

I once asked the price of an item in Poundland!

I was asked "what ingredients do you need to make ice?"
