This is a question Eccentrics

We all know someone who's a little bit strange - Mum's UFO abduction secret, or the mad Uncle who isn't allowed within 400 yards of Noel Edmonds.

Tell us about your family eccentrics, or just those you've met but don't think you're related to.

James Brown
Well, not THE James Brown, but a much skinnier lookalike that dresses in a very similar way, and sticks out in my small English town like the jive-talking expatriate sore thumb he clearly is.

He would have a top-flight strut going on were it not for the fact that something is obviously wrong with his left knee, so his unbending leg flails in an elliptical orbit at roughly a 35 degree angle out from his body.

One day, I spotted him out and about, slowly quarter-cartwheeling his way towards the bus stop. He was clearly in a world of his own, as he barely registered the unfortunate 7-year old in the path of his whirling limb, and clocked him in the solar plexus. The kid looked utterly confused and shocked, as JB snapped out of his reverie, and fixing him with a glare, bawled "y'all best be MOVING when I'm on rambling time, motherFUCKER!". Then, all that was left to be observed was the sight of the angry mother swooping in from nowhere, and smacking JB upside his head with a Lidl bag.

It was an ace little sideshow.

This made me laugh out loud:
"y'all best be MOVING when I'm on rambling time, motherFUCKER!"

Me too
I actually laughed for a good solid minute.

Just for that one sentence...glad I'm all alone in the office - much giggling and snorting (not that kind though...)

this should win
there's a black guy in Kilburn (in his late 50s/60s I'd guess) who appears to have beamed straight down from Uncle George Clinton's Funkadelc Mothership.

Purple velvet pimp suits and wicked bright blue funky shades. It's like he's fallen through some kind of time-hole in mid-70s Harlem.

What a dude.

JB is never seen out of Brown circa-1963 attire, much like this:


But with a proper slicked-down haircut...
