The longman dictionary states that we can use 'strike somebody as (being) something' and 'it strikes somebody as strange/odd etc that' to mean that something seems to have a particular quality or feature
His jokes didn't strike Jack as being very funny.
As I understand, we can always say that something strikes us as strange (odd), and that would sound normal. For example,
This struck me as strange and made me look into the further data in the past.
I wonder which adjectives are well combined with this phrase, besides 'strange', 'odd' and 'funny'? Are all adjectives applicable here?
I took 'unpleasant' as an example:
The bubbling sound struck me (as) unpleasant. (ok?)
