What was the silliest comment you have ever heard?

Have you followed American politics in the past two+ years?

 

I'd mention Canadian politics, but I'm not done banging my head on the wall regarding them.

But was it on fire? That might do something.

No. It hit the vampire square in the chest and fell apart into a shower of splinters. Doing absolutely nothing.

 

The vampires in that particular game were not even vulnerable to stake through the heart. And the dolt had a gun on him. Which would work, really really well.

My friend, the FLGS owner, has always been a huge proponent of PaintRack ever since I introduced it to her. She gushes about how great it is, but sometimes she can be a bit silly. Such as the following conversation:

 

*friend gives me some paints* Friend: "I have so many paints that sometimes I forget what I have and get multiples. It's hard to keep track of all the ones I already got."

Friend's husband, staring directly at her: "If only there was some technology, some app invented that let you keep Track of the Paint that you have."

Friend: "<_<"

Recently at a Shadow Run game, someone mentioned that there was a new true facts video out. We were joking that only humans (as opposed to robots) subscribed to zefrank. My friend turned around and said "Yeah, it's better than the Turing test." 

 

The other night at D&D, there were several comments like "Will my goddess bless a dead goblin like any other weapon for bonus damage? What damage dice will you give me for a dead goblin?"

This one came from me actually. "Do you wanna not be buried here?" This is in response to an NPC being upset that we found her prior reincarnations burial place. I'll never live that down.

 

ETA: I was trying to console her. That bit might be important. :lol:

Well, there are the assorted versions of "I will risk my child contracting one of several potentially deadly diseases, even though they are entirely preventable, because I heard on the internet that the prevention method might cause my child to be less than perfect (though still alive) even though there's no scientific proof of that remote possibility".

 

But perhaps less controversial, while in college and standing in line at a Panera-like restaurant:

 

Foreign Student:. What is . . . peanut butter and jelly?

 

Me: Uh, it's two pieces of bread with peanut butter and jelly.

 

Him: *pauses* Is that worth five dollars?

 

Me: No.

Well, I mean I suppose it would depend on just how big the pieces of bread are, but if it will fit on anything smaller than a gurney, I'm going to have to agree with your assessment. ^_^

My work colleagues are a reliable source for ridiculous comments, some examples include- 

 

"Yes I'm a Vegan, but prawns don't count because they were never alive in the first place"  

 

"Lions are the males and tigers are the females of the same species"

 

"Painting minis is easy, why would you charge me to paint my son's entire 40k army?"

 

"Chris Evans is a terrible Captain America"

... prawns were never alive in the first place? this feels like a district 9 quote...

Just remember, three strikes and they pull your vegan powers. 

 

Cheeseburgers aren't vegan? O_o

 

(hopefully I got that quote right)

Pretty much anything said by my Shattered Star group. 

There was a brief exchange concerning a sword between their cleric and an NPC .. that I can't really repeat, because I'd probably get nailed to the wall, but ... yah. 

 

Or, that one time the whole group lit themselves on fire, and the party's fighter picks up a flaming sphere and hits the swarm with it. Fighter's player, OOC: BEWARE ME GIANT FLAMIN' PILLAS! 

When we stopped laughing, combat moved on... eventually. He got a Ded GM award for that one.

Matt [Player, thinking fast in a tight spot] "I polymorph into an invisible stalker!"

Sam [GM, not missing a beat]: Have you ever seen one?
