When someone asks a dumb question or says something completely irrelevant I always say, "You're a clown" or "Get real"

When I'm telling/listening to a story about someone with false hopes or making poor decisions I usually chime in with, "In your room there is a door. A door with a large sign that says REALITY. You should open it" I like that one :)

Whenever someone is going on about some irrelevant, boring topic in minute detail, I always interrupt with:

"Um, you're confusing me with someone who cares".

The look of shock is priceless!

I love that phrase its so Yorkshire!

I like it when people say things that are a bit quaint and old fashioned. Like "Holy Moley"
