Most annoying question at faire? and your answer.
« on: February 14, 2010, 03:31:12 PM »
 I get very upset at- "Who are you Supposed to be?"Rude and annoying.
 I usually say-" I'll give you 3 guesses!" or "and who are YOU supposed to be?"

LMAO @ Queen Bonnie ....

First let me say that ignorance makes me smile. I love statements/questions like that at a renaissance faire... it makes me feel smarter than I actually am.

I totally understand the frustration though..... "Who are you supposed to be?"  LMAO....
The best reply is "Who are YOU supposed to be?"

I had a person argue that I was actually someone other than Merlin once.... I was some character from a movie that I hadn't seen...he was sure that I was THAT person and not Merlin.

I guess my favorite is when I'm kilted:

Question:  "What ya got under that there skirt?"
My answer: "Your girlfriends lipstick."

"Aren't you hot in that?"  (directed to me)

To which my husband quickly steps in and replies, "She's been hot since the day I met her, no matter what she wears."

Not annoying, but one I had fun with.

A man in costume walked up and said he was the Lord High Sheriff (no such character) and asked if I had a permit for Lightning Scooter-Horse.  I smiled and replied "Of course.  Would you like to see it?"

He said "Yes", so I hauled out the gate pass that Security had issued with a chuckle for Lightning.

The guy walked away shaking his said saying "I should have known better.". :)

Like Merlin, most questions I might get at faire are "The Question" about kilts. And since I wear one all the time, and get the same stuff all the time, I have plenty of good comebacks!  But I kind of find that extra annoying at faire!

My top answers vary, depends on who's asking;

Why nothing's worn, it all works great
Lipstick, two shades if I'm lucky!
Same as yours only bigger
Your stimulus package
Shoes and socks
The Irish Airforce; Two Hangers and a Nightfighter
etc..

When I potray Lord Fondlebottom I get quite a few off hand comments and questions. The worst is the "are you a jester?" I hate that! The other is "are you male or female?". Now to me, I dont think I look that female.  :P

I get alot of "Aren't you hot in that?" when I'm in garb because most of it is leather...then again, the person asking is usualy wearing shorts and a T-shirt and they are sweating too! My reply to "Aren't you hot in that?" is "Yah...but underneath I'm naked!"  ;)

Oh god...speaking as someone who plays a green furred, green skinned, horned, and hooved person....the list goes on for eternity.

Thankfully all the stupid questions and comments are made up for by the awesome jokes and puns by workers and fellows playtrons. :)
