A VtM game ended up leading to a discussion of what Weetabix would mean if it was a verb.

Anders: What is weetabixing? There is no easy answer to this question. Weetabixing is a personal process, in which you try to come into contact with your inner self. There is no "right" or "wrong" way to weetabix - the process itself nullifies precisely that kind of dichotomous thinking.

Played Vampire the Masquerade and my character is a "flower child" from the 60's, constantly surrounded by a huge cloud of weed smoke. So when one of the characters offered me a cigarillo I just said "I do not smoke... tobacco."

The occult WWII campaign:

PC: "What's the boss of those [Nazi] magicians doing?"

GM: "Having a significant personal revelation. His great plan is a smoking crater on the runway, and he needs to come up with a new one, quickly."

PC: "Very Limited Disadvantage (Callous Towards Necromancers) can be quite fun."

"How about this figure?"

"That appears to be an extremely constipated individual of indeterinate gender."

"I can not nay-say you."

"What about this one?"

"Ah, that's a Wulfgar from the Salvatore books. While it is incorrect in every literal detail it at least shows some of the proper spirit."

later

"Vaska approaches the doorway, sets his hand upon the image of the sacred feline and says _Here kitty, kitty_."

"Well, that's closer than_Open, Sesame!_."

No, he probably has one hand that's been replaced by a chainsaw. Target was the only job he could get after S-Mart folded...

I’m Kay’s player. I just wanted to add a little more to this one.

Kay: “Come on! I was minding my own business at McDoogal’s, had my head in my backpack, when an earthquake started. Then there were dinosaurs running down the street.”
Ruby: “You probably had something to do with the earthquake, too.”
Kay: (inarticulate sounds of denial) “You know what? Yeah. I caused the earthquake. I got all the sauropods in the city to Riverdance in unison for 30 seconds.”

Again, they wouldn't be that lucky. It would probably be the "Pointy-Haired Boss."
