This is a question Bizarre leaps of logic

Amorous Badger says: "I once humorously suggested that someone had been internet-stalking a Big Brother contestant. They concluded that I was threatening them. What's the oddest misunderstanding you've been involved in?"

All those far-right types who equate being a 'patriot' with 'hanging out with nazis'.

Some bunch of hippies
Who lived in a squat down the road from me, once accused me of being a Conservative voting capitalist pig who would have joined the SS because I asked them if they'd mind turning the music down at 3am on a Tuesday.

Now that I live in a nicer area, I occasionally recreate the experience digitally by making common sense points on the Guardian website and reading the replies.

I was once on an internet humour forum,
and there was some kind of palaver, involving trolling, stalking, accusations of mental illness, real-names being found out, and weak-ass threats about telling peoples bosses about internet stuffs.

The mods banned someone over it.

Then, bizarrely, they decided to host a thread, for a week, apparently dedicated to repeating exactly the thing that they just attempted to stop.

After getting increasingly frustrated at the clumsiness of the text-based parsing of The Hobbit computer game in 1986
I typed in FUCK GANDALF into the text box and it pondered for a second, then replied 'You travel North... around you are the misty mountains, exits are Down, East, West and South'.

I mean how could I have stated my actions any more obviously? Or is 'Go North' also a euphimism for the imperative command to fuck Gandalf?

Paddy was incredibly silly. When we were on the fourth floor and the elevator on the ground he pressed the up button repeatedly despite the fact we were going down. When we inquired why he did this he said that he was trying to make the lift go up to us.

When I was at the Mandela Memorial service
I started having a fit, properly spazzed out (I saw angels and heard voices at one point) and had a bit of a fit for 60 minutes without anyone helping, then afterwards I find the whole world had thought I was doing pretend sign language. The cunts.

You can never win…
I was having a heated discussion with my wife the other day (for info she’s a lecturer in sociology and the sexes).

We were discussing a recent study which purportedly claimed that men with light or fair pubic hair generally had larger penises, particularly the tips. This was explicitly true for Australasian, Caucasian men.

I of course thought this was utter bullshit and that she was perhaps having a dig at my own manhood, me not being blonde in the slightest.

Anyway she pulled up the report, which was actually published in the British Medical Society’s November newsletter.

Much to my shame, I had to admit that indeed I was wrong and that I was clearly no Schlong Fair Helm.

At work,
My co-worker, "I wish I were a lichen."
I stop everything I'm doing, "O.K. Part algae and part fungus. I don't see the advantage."
"No," he said, "the other kind."
"Oh, you mean l-y-c-a-n."
"Well, you'd at least get every full moon off. Nobody would want you around even if it's a busy weekend."

I have a theory that the word 'cunt' is far more acceptable in the UK than in Australia. It's pretty much the zenith of offensive expletives, oft used by bogans, mouth breathers and similarly ill-educated folk. Anything other expletives are daylight second.

Don't know why, perhaps us Australians are fundamentally misogynistic as well as racist?

I mention this, because at the moment my work is employing quite a few UK folk, and they regularly are hauled up before HR to explain their offensive banter.

They usually claim it's simply a cultural misunderstanding, after receiving a stern rebuke, a first and final letter of warning and the threat of cancelling their sponsorship.

Tell you what though, it's jolly good fun putting the fear of God into the gullible cunts.

I once laughed at someone on the internet.
He seemed to think this justified looking up my personal details and contacting my employer. Weirdly, someone agreed with him and suggested he hadn't gone far enough, claiming violent retribution was appropriate.
