Overheard in London: this week’s #wordonthestreet

By El Hunt

‘I think sometimes people just pretend to like olives, to give themselves a higher social status.

‘Would you rather be bald with hairy feet, or one foot tall? It’s a conundrum.’

I don’t eat avocado. I’m not allergic, I just have a deep, visceral hatred for it.

‘This revolving door is out of order due to a trapped fart.’

I can’t believe my life’s come to this: writing an Instagram post about aubergines.

‘I only slept for ten minutes as I was eating crab sticks.’

We’ve had really disappointing potatoes today.

‘I can feel myself baking like a roast chicken in this heat.’

‘Give me my nipple back!’
