Each and every week we publish a selection of the silliest things you’ve overheard on the streets of London. Some say we make them up. We don’t – every single one has been sent in by a Time Out reader via the #wordonthestreet Twitter hashtag. (All except the ones that are overheard in the Time Out office, that is.) So as our way of saying thanks, here’s a special look back at the most ridiculous things you’ve overheard in 2017. Here’s to another year of weird!

While you’re here: why not take our City Life Index survey and tell us how you feel about life in London?
