    I swear sometimes when I look at requests or hubs I think I've had a stroke and have lost my ability to read English because I can't understand what it says.

    This is a prime example:

    http://hubpages.com/request/11286/best

    Please tell me it's not just me...

            You may have nada to do with the request, but you're right that you do your best in everything .. and that includes fishing out funky requests!  big_smile

            I'm thinking, should we go and answer the request with a fabulously substandard hub? 

            HIIIIII RIGHT BACK AT YA!!!!!!!

              Or you can hub about "hi" in different languages? And use each in a sentence. That should not be flagged for lack of content, on the other hand, it could be some kind of a reference. as in:    "HIIIII: A Multilingual Dictionary of the Most Sociable Word Eva Eva!"   cool

          LOL the hubber probably just wanted to say "hi" is all. And it did catch my attention. Effective cool

      Yup.  I get a lot of emails in a similar vein.  I'm not sure how people mistake HubPages for other websites, but it happens pretty frequently (ie, a dozen times a day, at least--and that's just the people who bother to email about it).

    At first I thought they meant to be in the "Need Help?" forum, but that doesn't explain the Office Depot bit.  Very bizarre...  cool

      Hi Eric, good to see you. I'm here because I receive an alert whenever my name gets mentioned. My name is not Shakespeare, so make sure you don't mention monkeys with typewriters too often. LOL

    Hi Benson, old friend.
    We haven't had intercourse (social of course) for a while.
    You crack me up.
    My mind boggles at what why  you'd have that term on google alerts!

    BTW:
    How's your new nurse Blonde Poet coming a long?
    If you check out my comments in St. James hub

    Now there's an idea!  Plus, Crissy Cris, i keep getting the question about me and English.... I could turn that into a hub!  Gotta think about it!

    Though, by experience, every time I say I'll think about a hub idea, the hub never materializes! Seems like thinking about them ideas is enjoyable but getting the work done... not so much! tongue

    1. Cris A profile image59
      Cris Aposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Yes, think about as it sounds like quite an idea alright.

      I have to agree, the hardest part of hubbing is getting the work done! good thing for us there are are the Forums and Hubbers who actuall hub!   LOL  big_smile

    Isn't this nuts???? I wake up have a cup of coffee and this interesting human being is all over HP. Not what I was choosing to see at sunrise, especially without coffee. Cris A. It isn't Pest , I am certain that it is a nutcase without better things to do. For all I know it is my stalker as he does come in under multiple names. :sad

      LOL i know, Pest is funny and twisted but not sick cool I was just calling attention to it for it has been here for hours. Elena, and I were discussing something when it popped out. It sure scared Elena away cool

          DAMMIT I go to sleep for a few hours and look at all the excitement I miss!!! 
          In response to the oddities - People have done hubs about dumb hubrequests, maybe somebody needs to do a hub about the hubrequests that make zero sense, like these!  It would be good for a laugh if nothing else!

    Hey there!  You've got that right, Cris!  As much as I enjoy your company, I really, but really, can do without the crap that came up in the middle of our chat!  Laugh!

      Cris Aposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      I actually checked out the hubber's home page to see if there's something that can be done. Nothing. Constant said HP would take care of it. But how soon or when is not certain. Anyway, apparently this sicko posted similar graphics in other threads so he's all over the Forums cool

    I still love you, Cris. Even if I can't have you because there's a PENIS here somewhere making it very hard to focus on this impossible love affair!
