When I was in high school, I was dating a girl who told me about a "compliment" that her friend's dad had said to her about me. It really was meant to be a joke and was said in the best possible way, but it just seemed really strange to hear it.

What he had said was, "Brett would be good breeding stock if he was a horse."

I'm sorry. What? What does that mean?

Evidently what he meant was that because of my straight legs, my family history, and my teeth, if I was a horse, I would make good breeding stock.

Thanks?  I think?

Which got me thinking...what is the strangest compliment you've ever gotten?
