I'm sure we all get these - some clients seem to think we're Lucas Films. smiley 2 examples from our 'repertoire'. 
 
1:"There's too many disco lights - can you take some of them out".
2: My Grandparents never got onto the dance floor, can you 'put' them there and make it look like they're dancing?"
 
Always best dealt with by a quiet chuckle, and a gentle explanation as to why not. Never by talking down to the client. wink

Re: Bizarre requests
Just had one last week having received the proof copy asking if I could squeeze the titles a bit as they were disappearing off the side of the screen and then asking if there was any way I could stretch the picture a bit in the speeches as one of the guests was just off the edge of view - not putting two and two together are we madam !
