On the Picadilly Line travelling part of the way through London with my uncle (all this is loud enough that the whole carriage could hear it)
Uncle: I wouldn't fucking have that!
Me: What?
Uncle: Look, a white guy's standing up while *he's* (points overtly to black guy) sitting!
Me: Erm...
Uncle: I'd be right over telling him 'that's a white man's seat yer in'

By this time I'm attempting to disappear into my seat.

He then turns to a black girl across the carriage.
Uncle: So d'you like that reggae music then doll?
Me: This is my stop!

my dad once turned off the tv as he does when he's really serious. (when it's not that serious he just mutes.) And with this incredible stern face looks to the floor and says, "you know, son, me and your mum have come to a decisions." looks right at me. "we're going to make some spacecakes."
