Get the Overheard mug.
An utterance that is so stupid, funny, or ironic that it epitomizes life in New York City and deserves submission to Overheard in New York.
You're in a Brooklyn diner and hear a kid reading the want ads exclaim, "Hey this company wants a biotch!" His friend looks at it and says, "That says biotech, you dumbass." You've got an overheard and you need to share it with the rest of the world.

Get the overheard mug.
Often found in pages in women's magazines. These pages are filled with quotes or small conversations said by men to other men, partners or simply friends. The main purpose is to entertain the reader as it shows men in an unintelligent light. The readers 'overhear' the speech then send it in. The magazine then judges if it is worthy of print.
