This is a question Conversation Killers

ThatNiceMan asks: Have you ever been talking with people down the pub when somebody throws such a complete curveball (Sample WTF moment: "I wonder what it's like to get bummed") that all talk is stopped dead? Tell us!

I finally get to wheel this one out in a QOTW.
My Mrs was having a house warming party at her new place (obviously) and had invited friends from across the country to come along. In all there were about 40 people crammed into one front room of a pretty modest bungalow. Inevitably conversation started to dry up a little, so a round of guitar hero was suggested.

My friend and I decide to take the first turn as everyone is a little shy (most have driven, only 3 are staying over and drinking).

The song selection comes up, I choose 'Beat it' by Michael jackson.

Friend, (jokingly) "Why are you putting that on, it's a kiddy fiddler tune?!"

Me, "The joke's on you, I LIKE fucking kids!!"

Stunned silence in the room.

We collapse in laughter. Nobody else does.

By the time that song has finished all but the 3 poor sods who are sleeping over have left. Those three people went to bed early.

This is brilliant.
This is exactly the kind of thing which happens to me and my friends a lot. I laughed so much I almost sprayed chips over the keyboard. *click*
