there's nowt so queer as folk
There's nothing as strange as people. This phrase is typically used to emphasize someone's particularly odd behavior. ("Nowt" is a Northern English variation on "naught.") Primarily heard in UK. Whenever someone does something really bizarre, I remind myself that there's nowt so queer as folk.
