This is from my D&D3.5 game. A player was introducing a new character after his had died. The new character, he decided, would be a drunkard. As part of the group's D&D new character introduction, he was asked the standard question of if he, the character, would want to be brought back to life if he died. The character replied "Yes, but if you can't, bury me with my wine."

Discussing a Weird War II game:

Me: The party would be members of the resistance in France.
Raven: Do we have to be French?
Me: No. You could be American, British, Norwegian . . . lots of things.
Raven: Oooh, I could be a Viking Werewolf!
Me: Yeah. But you will need to be able to read and speak French, at least at a broken level.
Raven: Makes sense . . . check skills.
Me: Um, French is an advantage.
Raven: I wouldn't consider it an advantage to be French. A disadvantage: social sigma, OPH . . ..
Me: I meant the language is an advantage.
Raven: Oh, yeah!

Now I have to explain to my parents why I'm cackling in the middle of the night.

After several role-playing sessions using GURPS:

Me: "So, I just bought a new GURPS book-"
My friend: "What's GURPS?"

This is no joke.

Some years ago, I was in a group spending the day playing Paranoia. Towards the end, the GM made up his mind that one of the players, who had been irritating him, was going to lose a clone.

GM: Well, there's a 5% chance of you dying. Role a d20.
Player: [shake, rattle, role]. Hah! A 17. I'm safe!
GM: 17? That's just the number I was thinking of!

I believe the official Paranoia term for this was "hosed."

One of the downsides (upsides?) of playing a dim character is trying to imagine what he makes of the other PC's casual conversation. You can't just sit around in quiet confusion, because then you get left out of all the noncombat scenes...

Scene: Online game through OpenRPG. We're trying to find the Tomb of the Blood Baron, but the bloody Baron has a whole bunch of false tombs hidden in the wilderness...

Singeon: "The real one is better hidden, I bet, so you see the fakes first. Like a campflage."
Singeon: "or camoflage, as it is sometimes called."
Singeon: "It like the old riddle, where do you hide a tree? in a forest."
Mrugnak: "Mrugnak know cammo. Dat not cammo, dat like... um... eggs."
Singeon: "Eggs?"
Mrugnak: "Eggs!"


I watch as all the typing indicators come to a dead stop. And then there's this sudden storm as EVERYONE starts typing at once.

Mordreona: "I could eat."
Singeon: "Right! Eggs! Huh?"
Mrugnak: "It like, der berd got lotta eggs, ya?"
GM: ((GM loses it))
Lenia: ((Loses it angry, or loses it laughing? >.>))
Mrugnak: "So den snake eat some egg, rat eat some egg, men take some egg... but berd still got more eggs in nest."
Singeon: "Back to camp, peoples."
Mrugnak: "An den der little birdies!"
GM: ((can't type, laughing))
Mordreona: "Good we should have a rest and eat, while I look this place over good."
Lenia: ((Good work, Mrugnak. You broke the GM.))

The players have followed a suspected diabolist to an Italian restaraunt during the night, and are observing a blasphemous cult ritual being performed in the kitchen.

Soon, a hideous demon appears out of smoke and fire.

The demon-summoner approaches the demon and says..."Alright, Malfeggor, you'll be on dish-washing duty until you're cleared for the grill...now we're old fashioned wood stove here. You have an experience with one of those before?"

It is stuff like this that made running a Buffy game so very rewarding.
