A Strange Man

I know I haven't posted and I seem to have lost the gift of gabby posting, so in a desperate attempt to write something (anything at all), I've decided to blog about riddles.
Now, I've been hearing an overabundance of riddles recently, and it all started with this OC kid named Kevin who we towed down to the West OC Camp with us (Steve and I). We went on a long busride/trainride/carride with him and heard various intelligent riddles such as:

Kevin: Inside a big box, there's another box...and inside that box...there are 2000 professionally made windows. What is that box?
Me: Uhhh...computer?
Kevin: Wow! How did you know?

Steve, in true adaptable style, starts getting into the groove and swapping riddles with Kevin.

Steve: What's a Johnny without a reason?
Me: What?
Steve: Just John! Because you took away his Y!
Steve (laughing to himself): Hey Florence, I got a good one. What's a man and his family?
Me: Whaaaat...

Steve: A man and kin! A mannequin!
Me: Heh...heh...heh

Steve: What has 8 wheels but only runs on 4 at one time?
Me: I don't care.
Steve: Come on! Guess! You're so lame! Just try!
Me: Fine. No! I don't want to. Just tell me.
Steve: Fine. It's a man with 2 cars!!!
Me: Hahahahahaha I got one. What's a man with three ears!
Kevin: (various intelligent guesses)

Me: No...A STRANGE MAN!! Hahahahahahahahahaha

The good thing about this trip was that, for the most part, Steve and Kevin were silent from one riddle to the next because they were busy thinking up new ones.

About a month, while eating obento before a show, we start discussing riddles again.
Steve comes up with a lame riddle but he has to go around and get suggestions from about 4 people as to how to make it better before he comes out with the final product:

"In what state are all the mineral resources depleted?"

Yeah yeah yeah. Heh...it's actually kind of funny.

"What state breeds the horniest people?"

This evening, while we're sitting around recovering from Dinner, playing taboo, Rick picks a card and says "Okay, what's a knight's club?"
So we're all going around saying stuff like "The round table" "guild" etc and he's getting frustrated. Finally someone says "mace", and Mark starts hopping around saying "WOW, great riddle potential here!"
The final product:

"What's a famous night club?"

You guessed it.

If you're wondering why no one commented under this post, its because they're all hoping against hope that what they just read wasn't just a bad dream...(you know, the kind where you're in a public library and realize with a bit of a start that you're as naked as the day you were born)
