Eu não pude evitar ouvir

É um dos meus blogs preferidos.

O Overheard in New York é, basicamente, uma coletânea de frases entreouvidas em Nova York. O resultado é um blog sempre interessante, que mostra como a vida pode ser surpreendente.

Como dizia o Jules Dassin, “há 8 milhões de histórias em Nova York”. Estas são algumas delas.

Guy on cell: Of course I hate her! However, that’s not gonna stop me from fucking her.
–Park Slope

Hood on cell: Yo man, that bitch stole two ounces of coke from my house!…She’s your friend, you go get it back!
–outside The Martini Red Lounge, Staten Island

Jewish guy: You know, all the famous people are Jewish, like Einstein, and–
Black guy: Man, shut the fuck up, what the fuck is wrong with you? Ain’t you ever heard of Martin Luther King, Jr.? He ain’t Jewish; hell, that motherfucker ain’t even white. Jesus Fucking Christ!
Jewish guy: Very good! Jesus Christ!
–E train

Queer: So how was your date?
Hispanic chick: Oh, it was nice, he was nice and sweet, and a real gentleman, you know, he would hold open doors, make sure to walk between me and the street, you know, really nice.
Queer: Oh, you know what that totally screams?
Hispanic chick: What?
Queer: That totally screams: I want to get into your vagina right now!
–6 train

Teenage girl #1: Oh come on. Just try weed. It’s not that big of a deal.
Teenage girl #2: That’s one line I’ll never cross. That and sucking dick.
–4 train
(O título desse é “I Give Her 2 Months”)

NYU chick #1: Aren’t vegetarian hot dogs just as sketchy as normal hot dogs?
NYU chick #2: Maybe, but I would rather eat the stamen of a sketchy plant than the anus of a sketchy pig.
–Criff Dogs, St. Mark’s Place

Jewish Professor: …for example, we have the white people that vote, and we have the nig…bla…African-Americans that vote…
–NYU classroom

Mom: I know you would love homeschooling but you would have to be really sick or have a broken leg or something.
Son: Then why won’t you just break my leg?
–Lexington & 63rd

Health nazi: Y’know, smoking is bad for your health.
Security guard: So is fucking with people at 8:30 in the morning.
–28th & Park

Suit #1: …and he’s been playing on that game City of Heroes for two months straight now.
Suit #2: You reckon he’s still alive?
Suit #1: Well, he’s been typing nothing but “J” for a whole week on MSN.
–JFK

  1. O João Moreira Salles e a Raquel Zangrandi fizeram uma “Breve história oral de Brasília” só com frases entreouvidas por lá. Muito bom, tá no nominimo. Se ainda não viu, vá lá ver. Vale a pena. Caio.

  2. Adorei a do hot dog e a da teenage girl.

    Acho que, para uma versão carioca desse blog, teria que ser conversas ouvidas na praia. Sabe quando você vai sozinho, pra pegar um sol ou ler um livro, mas não tem como não “overhear” a conversa dos grupos à sua volta? Sempre tem fofocas cabeludíssimas sendo contadas.

  3. olá,
    lí “queria ser ditador por um dia”!
    texto perfeito na ironia e no humor!
    parabéns mesmo!!!
