So there we were at the access entrance to Centeroo near the bathrooms....
I go in to pee and my bf is waiting outside for me in his wheelchair. When I return I find some crazy hippie chic tripping on acid trying to climb in the chair with him. When they notice me approaching with a raised eyebrow the girl hops into the chair and then looks at me and back at my bf only to ask "can she push us around while I ride on your lap!!?" Obviously he said no (though I'm convinced he would have been down to keep her around for a while longer).
After losing my group I just went by myself to see The Roots and I was standing next to these dudes watching "Tuba Gooding Junior" do his Tuba solo when...
Guy 1: "Dude what instrument is that guy playing right now?" Guy 2: "One of those big ones... you know the huge ones!" Guy 1: "OHHHHH! YEAH!!! A Trombone!!!!" Guy 2: "No dude... just no... this sh*t has buttons you press on it man..." Guy 1: "OHHH... my bad... that's a trumpet... dang it sounds nice!" Guy 2: "Yeah... a trumpet... I can't believe I forgot that instruments name..." Me: "Guys, that's a Tuba." Guy 1 & 2 : "OH MY GOD YOU'RE RIGHT!" *high 5 eachother* then *High 5 me*
At least they were close with brass instruments that start with "T" but still...
Oh god there are so many. Last year my friends and I were walking to Centeroo and a bunch of girls in front of us had pink flamingos on long sticks and my friend was being bonnaroo obnoxious repeatedly yelling/chanting "flamingos are gay". The girls eventually got annoyed and turned around, gave him the look of death and screamed at him "LOSE SOME WEIGHT".
It was hysterical because (1) he's not over weight (2) they were so angry by it (3) we started hysterical laughing as did everyone around us.
My first year was in 2009 and the first morning I woke up at roo was to a guy with a Boston accent screaming, "WHO SHIT BEHIND MY VAN!?". For about an hour he complained and then proceeded to pour lighter fluid on it and light it on fire. hehe Gotta love Bonnaroo.

We sat near a tree during the Shins and in that tree, sat a pirate. This was the funniest thing to me.
The last night, our neighbors were drinking and dancing and asked us if we would like to "reasonably rage" with them. We politely declined as we were leaving early in the morning to drive back to Ohio. In our tents that night, we fell asleep listening to them go on about some sort of Ice situcation. The end result was to turn the music up after I believe someone gave them ice. That person was then known as DJ FREE ICE and his name was chanted for minutes while dancing shadows made their way around our tent and we couldnt stop laughing. Oh how I long for June!
Person 1: "Omg!!! Look how full the moon is!" Person 2: "Dude, that's the POD balloon!"
Oh and this one was priceless to me too, also heard on several occasions:
Naive First-timer 1: "Mannnn it's sooo hot! The weather here is terrible. I dont know if I can take it." Naive First-timer 2: "Yeah this must be the worst Bonnaroo heat wise, I don't know about next year."
My first year (2011) my friend and I could not figure out if it was the moon or not, it was the yellow pod balloon we realized in the daytime...
Wait... IS IT THE MOON?? I dont know.. IS IT??? No way.. wait IS IT??? Then where's the real moon?? It IS!!! hahaha oh my god I can't wait 3 more months.
