We're rolling out a new weekly feature here at LAist that relies on reader participation.

Overheard in L.A. will feature the humorous, puzzling or just plain weird quips you hear around our fair city. We're taking our cue from sister sites DCist and Seattlest, but only at LAist can you find out about what Chucky said to Spiderman about Superman while they were enjoying a smoke break on Hollywood Boulevard.)

Keep your eyes and ears open and share your overheard stories by e-mailing In the e-mail, be sure to include the subject "overheard" who said it, where they said it and any amusing context.
