So, I was thinking about the Monty Python move, "The Life of Brian" and the song from the final scene, "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" came to mind, I hummed a bit and remembered the final verse...
"So always look on the bright side of death!
Just before you draw your terminal breath.
Life's a piece of ****, when you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true!
You'll see it's all a show.
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you!"
... and I realized how many of my funniest MMO moments revolved around death. So, here's the idea for the thread:
Share your favorite, funniest, death story. Feel free to change names to protect the innocent (or guilty) but be honest if you caused the death, and please, no insulting people who share their mistakes (which we all make sometimes).
I'll share mine, it's actually somewhat recent...
My friend J. and I were duoing a leve in Gridania, at Camp Tranquil with me running lead... as we entered one of the glades...
Ailys : "Be careful... I've seen Morbols here before."
I almost ran right into the backside of a Morbol while typing, and I screeched to a halt. The Morbol turns around and looked at me as if it were saying, "Oh, THERE'S my lunch." I turned and started running away, J. was already beating his retreat.
Ailys : "OMG I totally didn't see it! It was camouflaged!"
J. : "Yeah, as a Morbol!"
My death quickly ensued.
Looking forward to hearing some of your funny death stories!
