Girl #1: You have a good tush.
Girl #2: I dunno it's so triangle.
Girl #1: What's mine?
Girl #2: Well continuing the geometric shapes., I'd say a square. Only because it's double the size of a triangle.

Guy: Today I was trying to change the tracks on my iTunes through my jeans. So I was sittin' there...y'know...press the buttons...and then I realized that it looked like I was groping myself and lots of people were watching me. And I was like: Whatever. You don't know me!

with the official release of the october issue of the E3W today, i wanted to make note again that the quote featured in the advertisement there is actually from the Urban Outfitters in Manhattan, not the one on State St. and that from here on out, submissions will be screened against the New York site to make sure they are genuine.
i apologize for this egregious error, but please continue to read the site, as submissions are slowly but steadily increasing. keep your ears open...

"Who ever does that ann arbor is over-rated website needs to get out more often. From what I can tell they have no social life and spend all day googling for ann arbor related material to whine about. "
overheard by Jerry @ leopold brothers.
(moderator's note: i find this particularily interesting considering the latest flurry with annarborisoverrated after that site linked to us. and yes, ann arbor may be over-rated in some regards, but it's still pretty sweet.)

oooh, some (good?) publicity. Ann Arbor is Overrated, found us here, and featured us, hence the huge surge of hits we've gotten recently. one commenter noted (and subsequently made a submission) that this site is "banal." i agree, i haven't had the adequate time to put much into site design. best option: subscribe to the RSS feed and just enjoy the submissions. some are funnier than others, but if we get more submissions, we can filter for the really good ones.
got a problem? let us know.
EDIT: it has also come to my attention that there have been some quotes submitted that came directly from Overheard in New York. this should not have and will not happen again. this site is strictly for quotes from Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor is Overrated is correct for having pointed out our fraudulence in this matter. i have not had the time to cross check any of these quotes with the New York version, so if you notice one that appears here that originated in New York, please let me know. i apologize to any E3W readers out there who came here for the quote that was allegedly stated to have come from Ann Arbor, but in fact did not. please still submit and enjoy the site.

Inspired by the concept of these "Overheard" blogs, there's another one, semi-related, for quotes you've heard from your professors. let's be honest, a day doesn't go by in my comm 371 class where the professor doesn't say something hilarious. and usually she doens't mean for it to be funny, but isn't that how many of these quotes come about? check it out: Professor Quotes. same as with this site, click on one of the links on the sidebar on that page to submit a quote you heard.
now, surely the football game lent itself to some good quotes (see the previous post) so let's keep 'em coming...and be on the lookout for quotes from your profs too.

Girl 1: Please, he can't possibly be blaming me for this. Had I known about all of this drama, we would've never hooked up. But you know what they say, it takes two to tango...
Girl 2: What about mambo?
