And I don't mean peculiar (though some folks certainly wear their freak flag well, don't they?)
Another word for people is "individuals." And isn't being unique, one of a kind, also a single individual? (Makes sense to me.)
There's an old Emo Phillips comedy sketch where he discusses religion. He meets a man on a bridge and neither wishes to make room for the other to pass, so they begin to narrow down their choices:
"He said, 'Well, I'm a Baptist.' And I said, "Ha! I'm a Baptist, too!' What a small world!"
It takes several back and forths between the two before they find the one point of scripture they disagree with, and then Emo delivers the punchline.
