In this week's edition of Overheard in L.A., we've got manbuns (god), steampunks, and a video of a bro kicking a wasp's nest.
Overheard of the Week
"As full moon approaches, I notice my inner shadow struggles."
It's not a secret anymore!
"Miley Cyrus is secretly running South Korea."
So like, a prequel to Wild Wild West?
"It's a steampunk version of the immigrant story through Ellis Island."
If you can dream it you an achieve it.
"I wish I could get Botox in my shoulders."
"You should just take Adderall, then you won't get hungry at all."
They were only joking

It's all downhill from here.
"That video of you punting that wasp's nest? Top moment of my life."
"What can I say, I love a man with a bun!"
