What to say when someone says that you look familiar

Funny replies when someone says you look familiar

When a stranger approaches you on a night out and asks where they know you from the answer will depend on whether they are totally hot or not. If you think they are attractive, why not have a little fun with the guy or girl who might be someone you want to get to know a little better in the future.

Years ago, I heard a funny story about a business CEO who was at a restaurant with his wife. While the couple was waiting to be seated, the man kept saying to the restaurant hostess, “You look really familiar, I just can’t figure out where I know you from?”

The restaurant hostess had posed as a Play Boy centrefold many years ago, but she hadn’t mentioned it to anyone where she was working.

Obviously, the businessman had spent a lot of time looking at her curves with great detail and knew them well. The businessman just couldn’t picture the hostess with her clothes on!
