    The Orange County blonde girl in front of the Whatever Corporate Entity Scratch Tent trying so hard to get people to come inside and try "learning how to scratch in 15 minutes", trying to act all dope hip-hop and instead getting a big fail.

    "Hey, guys, you ready to come in, get down, drop some tracks and learn how to scratch? It's sooper fun!"

    So sad and funny, she's now my signature.
    "It's sooper fun."

    Damnit, this sounds hilarious.

    And you're so right. You can't write any of these things. This whole thread has had me laughing my ass off all day long.

    Something I did:

    saw a guy I recognized in the sahara during Etienne De Crecy, so i offered to pack a bowl. I packed it and handed it to him. he just looked at it and handed it back. I looked in the bowl and realized I had packed what was left of my weed brownie. I started cracking up and re-packed it with purps.

    good times.

    Saw an older man, probably in his 60's, trippin out on acid on Friday.
    We were sitting by the tents at the Do Lab when he walked over to our group, took his shirt off and put it on the sign as if it were a person. He then proceeded to hump his backpack.
    By the time he'd left, his underwear was left on the floor and it was evident he'd shat his pants. lol.

    I love Coachella..

    The Guy during the Cure who had mickey mouse gloves and a Viking helmet on (The medieval kind not the foorball kind) doing some of the most bizarre dance moves I've ever seen at almost impossible high speeds. He was pretty big and tall so I'm sure someone saw him.

    Was standing in the far right corner of the Sahara beer garden waiting for a friend - I was up close to the fence with a view of the tent right by the far right entrance. I heard this extraordinarily loud sneeze and looked over and saw this mexican dude to the right of me doubled over with snot and slobber dripping from his hands and face. He had a horrified expression on his face - eyes bulging and snot running every where. Then he sneezed again, and again, and again - finally keeling over in a puddle of his own spit and mucus. Me thinks that some serious drugs whent into that nose of his that night - as everytime he sneezed he appeared to go blind from the sheer force of it and forget where he was. I was walking out of the Sahara about 45 minutes later and I heard a sneeze - looked through the fence in the beer garden and the guy was still there sneezing and leaking.

    watching the "oh wow those guys must be rolling HARD" expression on the faces of people watching my friends dance in the sahara. it was funny because they were sober the entire weekend. they just like to go off in a weird way

    funniest thing by far for me was when I was running through the campground TRIPPING MY FACE OFF! doing either: 1- the arm airplane while making engine noises. 2- doing my suprisingly popular monster walk (and i say popular due to numerous ppl doing it during the Sunday night makeshift drum circle / yell fest.

    also, paris hilton kneeling down to light up in the saharah

    That reminds me of the girl right in front of me for Moz. Obviously a huge fan because she was singing a dancing to every song but she must have tried to call or text at least a dozen times... wtf?

    The girl who crowd surfed/rode the big inflatable shark in the Sahara during the Bloody Beetroots. That was pretty sweet. That Shark was fantastic in general. I loved how it got thrashed around the Sahara all weekend.

    I was sleeping in the beer gardens on Saturday during Lupe Fiasco and start to wake out of my slumber while the Aussies next to me started telling a funny story (you'll have to imagine the aussie accent)

    Supposedly Saturday Morning one of the aussies goes to the phone charging tent in the campground to charge his phone at 7am, after plugging his phone in, a guy with blood all over his face and hand comes up to him and says "do you want a drink?" extending out his bloody hand holding a cup of who knows what the fuck. The guy grins and says "no, I'm alright mate" and then the guy replies "I'm getting out of here, too many fuckin creeps!"

    WTF?!

One of the funniest things I saw all weekend.

    - Sitting in deadlock traffic on the way out Friday night, there's a dude in a red tracksuit thing dancing on top of his car. And after about 20 minutes of watching him dance, his friend dressed in all green joins him. It looked like Mario and Luigi dancing on top of a car. I have video that I'll probably upload sometime this weekend.

    - The all green zipper man. I high fived him on his way through the crowd in the Sahara Saturday and couldn't stop laughing at all of the WTF looks he was getting from people. Priceless.

    - The roll of toilet paper flying around in the Sahara and the dude with the horse on a stick.

    - Multiple times during the weekend I overheard people saying "Eww there's a tampon back here."

    - All of the dust penis drawings on the cars nearest to the fence on the way into the festival each day. I counted at least twenty, and there were a few occasional pussy/boobies drawings as well.


    the toilet paper/ horse on a stick at girl talk? i cant believe they taped a hook on to a leaf blower to blow toilet paper into the audience. it was quite clever.

    Was he wearing a shirt that said "Had Enough? Vote Obama/Biden Nov 4th"?

    That may have been me.

    Oh man, we smoked 3 joints for People Under the Stairs, and lots of others around us were smoking too. Later in their set, Double K said something along the lines of "Whatever you got, light it up. Y'all are getting me high as shit up here."
