70. You sought out "Who did you call a shorty that has to be looked through a magnifying glass to actually be seen?!" whenever you hear someone saying pipsqueak. :D

I got my hair cut short to a pixie cut and my first thought was "HOLY SHIT I LOOK LIKE RIZA HAWKEYE"
ja-c25 Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I do majority of these things, but instead of my friends doing them with me, they stare at me blankly and think I'm retarded. I guess they thinks it's weird when I start snapping at ppl I don't like...
lilconch Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013

Number 2 reminds me of how my friend got a call from some guy who sounded like Shou Tucker.
AlySixx69 Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
i've done half of these...and i'm a gypsy...
Deadly-fudge Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That's really cool. I hope I didn't offend you by the way any of that was phrased.
AlySixx69 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
oh you didn't! i thought all the gypsy stuff was really funny. thank you for the laughs!
nashoba-lusa Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012  Student General Artist
Oh, I have something you can add to the list!!!

You try to convince your parents to make your brother (who is teenager and still really short) grow his blonde hair out so you can braid it.

I have tried this, and while my father loves FMA and thinks that Ed's hair is acceptable, he refuses to let my brother grow his hair out.

Once again, a fabulous list. :D

You forgot: every time someone says "the gate", you immediatly think of "The Gate."
Deadly-fudge Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I'm planning on putting a lot of Gate related ones in the third :)
SuzakuGirl13 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I imagined number 13 because we were studying something really boring in Biology 2 and I wanted to ace the test. xD
Rei-Dark-Alchemyst13 Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2012  Student General Artist
I have done most of this stuff. One of the only thing I haven't done is retort to height joke with a short rant. I'm too tall :'( I wish I was short.
lilconch Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013
im short but not blond so i cant braid my hair and rant

"Your history teacher mentions something random about the ancient science of alchemy (or some such…) and you suddenly have a random twitch that sends your books flying."

lol i did that at a staff meeting, exept that instead of alchemy it was "Aizen" (if you dont know, he is the biggest troll i have ever known [in anime/manga or in reality] he killed his minions [of which he had over fifty] tried to take over the soul society [heaven] has a bitch curl, always has this "i bitch better than you so suck my obese d***" face on, thinks hes more badass than toshiro, killed the main character [in an indirect way] and makes me wanna punch the computer/tv/book whenever i see his face.

but the thing that pissed me off was the fact that they said that just make me spaz. :iconinternalinjuryplz:
wolfhorseluvr12 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
... 98% of this has occured to my friends and I. I fear that you are a friend I know in real life and we just don't know each other's dAs. :XD:
Deadly-fudge Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
