The PCs, in a modern day Action! campaign, have just discovered they're fighting a werewolf or faerie.

Joel: Do you have Occult?
Rachel: No, but give me some robes and a few hours and I'm sure I can start one up.

Bandits, in a basically unassailable fortress; we were running out of ideas on how to get up.

Bandit 1: "There's a dragonborn riding an emu coming up to our front door."
Bandit 2: "OK. We're letting that one up just so we can ask."

EDIT: And another from the same session (just ended):

Dwarf warrior: "Is there normally a horrible bloody tentacled undead ooze monster commanding an army of monstrous shadows in the pit out front?"
Terrified halfling villager: "NO???"
Dwarf warrior: "Well, there still isn't..."
Terrified halfling villager gapes in horror and brain-fried confusion at the Dwarf.
Dragonborn's player: If he doesn't shut his mouth, I'm putting an apple in it and patting him on the head.

(we'd killed the monsters on the way in)

I am running a modern campaign where the mundanes are dealing with the supernatural. The first full session, I start out by having a shape changing cat come out of the faucet as one of the characters, Cotter, is getting ready for work.

After the initial shock, Cotter decides to finish getting ready for work. Instead of drinking out of the sink, he flushes the toilet a few times and gets some water out of the bowl as it seems safer. Beck, another PC, asks Cotter, "What if your face gets eaten by a toilet alien?"

Later, after a hostile encounter with the cat, a PC by the name of Hannibal is scratched by the cat. Hannibal is convinced he has been infected by the shape changing disease. Cotter asks Hannibal, "What you're saying is that you're now a weird sink alien also?"

If my face gets eaten by a toilet alien, then I need to stop drinking so much that I puke.

So, the Party is in Dallas, Texas where they're set upon by a rather unattractive, lizard-looking female with giant tusks. There is a bit of a fight and the creature runs off.

Red Velvet: "Yeah, get out of here, you monster!"
Shadow: "Well, let's not be too hasty, she may not be a monster."
Backup: "Yeah, here in Dallas, she may just be a Cowboys fan."

Well, depends on how it's administered. Administered at high velocity, sure.

If you use it as a suppository, it's about right. ;-)

How is that related to Rule 34?
