My uncle Stewart would be the third place... because nobody has told him that the seventies are over.  
I would be second place...
and my cousin Sheli gets first place, because she's almost exactly like me except that she's a bit older.... so she's further on in the dementation process.     
I'm catching up though....

lol!!  That's easy... my aunt.  See, my family is a redneck family, and my aunt Donna lives out in country land on a farm with tons of animals and wears her hair in pigtails, and wears overalls.  Once, I brought my boyfriend to meet my family, and she blacked out her teeth to make an impression.  *sigh* welcome to my life.  lol!

Well it's kinda hard to say.......
My sister is 31...way older than me but she has cousins and the like her age to relate with ....so not her.
My brother is down syndrome, he's 21....but everybody loves him. So not him....
Now me.....my mother is french and my dad is puerto rican.....at all the family reunions I'm the black sheep.....EIther everybody is speakin french or spanish....never english. I know all 3 (french is my worst), but I prefer to talk in english....sets a lot of barriers even though they know I know how to speak the language.
Oh....that and I hardly talk to anybody. haha....I sit in the corner and put on my head phones....oh well!

I could say my daughter Morgan...

She was in one of those 3 1/2 year old "moods" today - just wacko.  I mean, seriously, who needs a TV??  Just before we finished dinner at the table (I had to pry her away from an imaginary activity involving puzzle pieces, a plastic tiara, two play horses, and the cat - to get her to eat) When she says "You can call me Mr. Cat."  Followed very shortly by "Don't touch my garbage!!" then "Have you seen my crown?"

I could say she's the strangest...but, she had to learn it from someone.

Among the living it would be me.  Though I do have a cousin who's with a travelling carnival...but that's more sad than strange.

In my family it has got to be my sister. She is convinced that Hollywood (namely, Dick Van Dyke, Danny Glover, and Betty White) are out to kill her, and that they have already written a book describing her demise. We had to have her put in a mental hospital last week. It's sad, but she is the strangest one in the family.

where it kisses my face and eats my head. Shivaree

Hmmm.....I suppose the answer to that would rely upon what the person judging was accustomed to---IT'S ALL RELATIVE!!!!

I am definently the strangest person in my family. Ever since my grandfather died, I was never really able to relate to anyone in my family (with the exception of one aunt). I never ran around and played with any of my cousins during holidays, and the adults just shooed me off. They think of me as the "smart-ass", because I tend to correct them when they are wrong about something, and they really hate that (especally my father). So, I'm the strangest one in the bunch. That's just fine with me, who wants to be normal??

I REALLY don't know... my entire family is just so special. I can't possibly choose one person. Not even me.

I've heard of a refrigerator
and I've heard of rock n roll
but not refrigerator rock n roll
