People Share The Funniest Thing They've Ever Heard Someone Say In Their Sleep

Today's word of the day is somniloquy, which refers to a parasomnia that refers to talking aloud while asleep.

We've all heard people say outlandish things while asleep –– chances are you might have done it yourself at least once or twice. I freely admit to sleepwalking a couple of times as a child and freaking my mother out.

We're sorry if you're looking for stories of people who said things that made them sound as if they were targeted for demonic possession. That's not what you'll find here, but we suspect you'll laugh nonetheless thanks to Redditor function158, who asked the online community, "What is the funniest thing you've ever heard a person say in their sleep?"


"I was studying abroad..."

I was studying abroad in Italy. My (also American) roommate rolled over and said "Yogurt, am I right?" I laughed and quietly said "Haha yeah buddy." He, in his sleep, replied "Hey, man, f*ck you." It was hilarious.

"My husband recently asked..."

My husband recently asked, "Did I just have a dream about breast cancer awareness?" Unaware that he was in fact still asleep, and wondering what the hell he was asking me that at 3am, I replied, "I dunno. Probably." Not that funny I guess, just so random we still laugh about it.

"When I was about 8 years old..."

When I was about 8 years old, I woke up and felt sick. Naturally, I went to my parent's room to wake my mom up. I tapped her and she sleep-mumbled, "Be quiet, the vegetables are still sleeping". For some reason, it freaked me the fuck out. I went back to my room and started crying haha.

"Before we got married..."

Before we got married, it was the middle of the night. I sat bolt upright, practically screamed, "BROTHER, HELP ME, IM GETTING MARRIED!!!!!" then slammed back down onto the bed, dead asleep. My now wife absolutely lost it laughing.

The funniest part of it all is I didn't even know it happened until she told me about it in the morning.

"My wife started giggling in her sleep..."

My wife started giggling in her sleep. I whispered to her, "What's so funny dearie?" She answered, "My sister is riding on a frisbee... It's a fun recipe." She quickly dozed back off.

"I remember at a sleepover..."

I remember at a sleepover, one kid shouted 'I SEE THE LIGHT!' and then sleepwalked into a wall. They were very confused as to what happened when they woke up.

"My dad yells a lot in his sleep..."

My dad yells a lot in his sleep and said many a funny thing over the years. The best one I've ever had the pleasure of witnessing was:

"W W W DOT COM"

And when I say my dad yells in his sleep, I mean he YELLLLLLS. It was hilarious and still laugh about it to this day. The way he enunciated the Ws was just so good.

"In college I had a roommate..."

In college I had a roommate who would talk in his sleep occasionally. One time in the middle of the night he said "Tehvolcanic, Tehvolcanic I need to tell you something important." He sounded very earnest and I wasn't quite asleep yet so I said "Ok, what is it?" Suddenly he was shouting and yelled "IT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!" and was silent for the rest of the night.

"I woke up one night..."

I woke up one night to my husband laying on his back with one arn sticking straight up in the air. He was dead asleep and I asked if he was ok. His response was "I like your bones."

"I have a history..."

"WHY ARE YOU SLEEPING WITH HIM, YOU WH*RE!"

Context, I was a senior in high school and my uncle was staying at our house for the weekend. His new wife, of about 6 months, was with him. To be courteous we let them stay in my room and I stayed in my brothers.

I have a history of outlandish sleep walking and talking. In the middle of the night I walked into my bedroom and started screaming at my new aunt calling her a wh*re. My mother came out and walked me back to bed.

Lucky, she has a great sense of humor and reminds me about it every time I see her.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
