This one got me a spot on the radio. The local morning show I listened to in OKC for years was asking Facebook followers for their weird talents. I posted that I could recite the alphabet backwards in under ten seconds and almost immediately one of the DJs had messaged me asking for my phone number because they wanted me on the air. I showed off my "talent" (in under five seconds, actually!) and that was that. 

A few weeks later I was attending a party with friends. As one of the partygoers was preparing to leave, the host asked him if he was sober. (Never drive intoxicated!) They were doing a mock sobriety test and he was asked to recite the alphabet backwards. He commented that he can't do that, ever, and I had another chance to show off my "skill." The fellow partygoer laughed and said, "I heard you on the radio last week!" 

So I was actually recognized for this. That in itself is hilarious to me.
