Can you remember your last somniloquy? Chances are you didn’t deliver it onstage – if you did, the audience would demand their money back – but it was probably an unforgettable performance nonetheless.

“Somniloquy” is the technical term for sleep talking, a harmless, unconscious behaviour that about 5 percent of adults keep up regularly after childhood. With your mind deep in dreamland and your motor functions edging back into reality, sleep talking is one of those highly bizarre activities that you can do without having any recollection of it. That was certainly the case with these Reddit readers who shared the funniest, most unusual things they ever said (or heard someone else say) while sleep talking. Lucky for us all, there was someone else around to record them. Take it all in – and then tell us your answer.
