Geeky RPG humor
A friend told me about this yahoo group that made up a FAQ page for role-playing. It's great! Here's my three favorites:

Question about the GM:

Q. Why is he sitting there, smiling at me after he rolled his dice?
A. Unfortunately, my friend, you are dead. Or imprisoned. Or something far far worse.

Question about Players:

Q. Why don't my players spot the obvious plot lines?
A. Because they are stupid. All players are stupid. Even if they spot the obvious plot hooks, they'll probably then do everything in their power to not follow it and go off on some mad crusade.

And my favorite (Because, yes, I do this):

Q. Why do players think that changing the dice they're using will stop a run of bad luck?
A. Players like to attach mystical properties to inanimate objects. They will also do anything they can to improve their luck, even if it is futile, they can still feel warm in the thought that they did all they could.

*cracks up laughing* Bwah. So, SO true.

I remember when my DM would roll the D20 to see who just got attacked by the guy who rolled the natural 20 on his attack roll...

and then his eyes would widen, and he would look up at me.

My poor Barbarian, Bane Jr., had more critical hits against him than I've ever seen a D&D character absorb and live.

In one session, he took *four critical* hits in a war campaign (...I was about to make a LotR analogy that you wouldn't get... uh, so it was a big battle against an undead horde), before he went down.

Foolishly unlucky, but fun character.

"To climb this cliff, roll a dex check!"
"Heh, let's see if Bane falls off again!"
*scoff, as Bane *does* at least have an 18 dex*
*rolls a 20*
"...Ha ha!"
"Bane slips from the rock face!"
"...I guess I better move to catch him."

In the other campaign, I had two mages get killed before they even got a spell off.

Fun times.
