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.

Not me but...
A story recounted to me by a friend. Actually, this probably would have gone quite well in last week's "tightwad" question as well, but oh well.

My friends are out on a boat trip one weekend, enjoying the open seas and nature in all its general loveliness, when suddenly they see a man in the sea, clinging to a rock and signalling frantically to them. Alarmed and also rather excited to be part of a rescue mission, they steer the boat over to to see if they can help. The man in question is a chinese gentleman, who bellows to them in broken English: "ARE YOU SMOKING??"

He was out at sea, at least an hour away from civilization. And he wanted to bum a fag.

During the course of the day they saw several people go over to "rescue" him, before realizing his game and driving off again. They saw him the next weekend too. Apparently he's quite well known by the marine police.
