Waiting for Round 5? Post a joke.


RPG Superstar™ 2008 General Discussion


Post a joke while waiting for round 5. Keep it clean.

Did you hear about the cross-eyed teacher?
She couldn't control her pupils.

What do you call a arrogant fugitive falling from a building?
Condescending.

A man left his cat with his brother while he went on vacation for a week. When he came back, the man called his brother to see when he could pick the cat up. The brother hesitated, then said, ''I'm so sorry, but while you were away, the cat died."

The man was very upset and yelled, ''You know, you could have broken the news to me better than that. When I called today, you could have said he was on the roof and wouldn't come down. Then when I called the next day, you could have said that he had fallen off and the vet was working on patching him up. Then when I called the third day, you could have said he had passed away.''

The brother thought about it and apologized.

"So how's Mom?" asked the man.

"She's on the roof and won't come down."

A big seafood fan takes a trip to Boston for the first time. After grabbing a cab, he asks the cabbie, "I'm new here. Where can I go to get scrod?" The cabbie looks at him and says, "I've been asked that many times, but never in the pluperfect subjunctive."

An old one of mine - an early attempt to create D&D specific humor:

Spoiler:

A halfling rogue, an elven wizard and a half-orc barbarian walk into a tavern.

The bar-wench, in the midst of taking an order, takes a moment to look over at the group and shouts: "Hey, we don't serve your kind here!"

Taken aback, the adventuring party stops and considers for a moment.

"Well, she can't be talking about me," pipes the halfling. "There's no way that she could know that I'm a 'rogue', and we halflings are loved by all!"

"Maybe she thinks you're a six-year-old," says the half-orc.

"Well, she certainly wasn't talking about MOI," declares the elf. "We elves are the finest and most admired of all possible species - and the very idea of distaste towards 'wizards' is laughable, at best."

"Maybe she thinks you're a bard," says the half-orc.

"Hm. Well, I think she means YOU, actually."

"No, I'm pretty sure she wasn't talking about me, neither."

"Why's that? Because you could kill everyone in this town?"

"No, because that's my mom."

More humor from my pre-PSA archives, and a LONG one:

Everything I know about Economics, I learned from playing Dungeons & Dragons
which explains, very clearly & concisely, why I am so very, very poor

An essay by Clinton J. Boomer
(with assistance from Helpful_Ninja and the Proto_Zombie)

Spoiler:

The Rules of D&D Economics:

1: Everyone has roughly the exact same amount of money and/or property as everyone else of his or her respective "level". Except at first level, obviously, where monks totally get the shaft, which sucks.

But being poor and staying poor are two very different things - if you need more money, you just need a level!

Only about 99.9% of all people, specifically those who lack the initiative to spend every dollar they own on a suit of studded leather & a knife and to abandon their families for the open road on a mad, bloodthirsty whim, ever really STAY poor.

A: If you find that you have too much cash or too much stuff or god-help-you a game-unbalancingly tough Artifact of Nigh-Unlimitless Powerfulish-ness, then something quite unexpected will very soon happen to take it away. If you hold on tight to it, something VERY BAD will happen VERY soon, you will still lose your cool s@~*, possibly some limbs, and you will learn an invaluable lesson about tempting fate.
B: If you have too little cash, you are going to find some very soon. If things get a bit rough and you are looking at an long and unpleasant future of abject poverty, then rest assured that one of your close friends will soon gladly loan you several years’ salary at literally no interest for the foreseeable future, and possibly ad infinitum.

2: Money cannot make more money. Investing in businesses is a fool’s bargain: stores burn down, castles crumble, merchants and/or bandits will constantly steal your s!*%, and you will never, ever make a dime. Ever. It is far wiser to invest in non-depreciable items like swords, hats and magic boots. Likewise, the things that you need to do your job (boats, armor, weapons, rope and horses, for example) do not depreciate at all and may be used forever unless somehow completely destroyed.

3: All currencies of all countries are worth almost exactly the same amount – and all currencies of all countries are evenly divisible into platinum, gold, silver and copper pieces by factors of exactly ten. No other non-magical objects have any real value, including land. The exceptions to this rule are gems, which are randomly & subjectively priced (and therefore effectively useless as trade goods) and ‘art objects’, presumably meaning paintings and such, the value of which are objectively determined, fixed and unchangeable, making them a lot like personal checks.

4: All rich people are extremely, horrifyingly competent in some way: if they are unable to personally kick your ass at the moment, then they most assuredly have any number of servants more than capable of kicking your ass now and at their convenience. If you ever become rich, you will more than likely discover that in the intervening time you have become (a) just INCREDIBLY callous, and (b) incomprehensibly deadly.

5: Giving to charity is similar to throwing your money down an infinite well: you will never, ever make a noticeable difference of any kind simply by giving money to the poor, and all charities (see: churches, bums, kids, your family) will still expect you to pay list price for any service no matter your prior contributions.

6: Spending your money on ale and whores is the best way to keep anyone from taking either your cash or the cool stuff you would otherwise buy with your cash.

7: Killing people and taking their stuff is wrong.

It is also the single most profitable exercise in the entire world. In fact, all rich people ever do is kill other people and take their stuff – with the exception of the super-rich, who have their servants do it for them.

8: On that note, no job in the entire world pays anywhere NEARLY as much as killing people and taking their stuff (or, even better, being PAID to kill people and take their stuff) meaning that farming is FAR less economically tenable than sitting in front of a bar frequented by paid killers, asking for spare change.

9: Anyone and everyone you will ever sell any valuable items to will underpay you for them. Everyone you will ever buy any valuable items from will overcharge you for them.
That’s just how it is. It is annoying, but nothing in the world (short of murder) will ever, ever change that.

As in all other cases, murder fixes everything.

10: Money is just lying around somewhere. Vast amounts of it – more than you could ever, ever make in a lifetime of hard work making shoes or selling butter. It is sitting somewhere close to you – more than likely, in a cave near your house. It is probably guarded. You will need a torch, something sharp, and some friends.

11: Everyone you will ever meet will charge you for every service they will ever do for you, with the exception of your friends, who will never charge you anything. If you are somehow able to become friends with a wizard, a doctor, a lawyer, a priest, a violent sociopath and a pickpocket, you are set for life.

12: There is a vast and infinite surplus of every single thing you do not want, and a desperate shortage of everything you do want – except when EXACTLY the right amount of exactly what you want is readily available swiftly, painlessly, and occasionally without charge, often in an effort to bribe you into not shopping.

13: Mundane store owners of all kinds will always require you to ask VERY specifically for exactly the thing that you want, cannot recommend bargains or products, often do not know what, if anything, they have in stock, often have no idea what their products are or how to use them, and charge obscure (but exact) list prices for all of them. However, all stores have exact change at all times in all denominations.
A: Most storeowners have no name, no facial features, no history, no goals beyond ‘shop-keep well’, no distinguishing personality, and apparently sleep in the back of their store on a huge pile of generic, nameless ‘goods’. If pressed, they will often lie and claim to have ‘forgotten’ their name.

B: The few store owners who DO have even the slightest personality are universally so unutterably annoying that you will yearn for the days when every person in town not cackling with evil or one of your close personal friends was summed up as ‘Mayor”, ‘Chet’ or ‘guy who knows Chet’.

14: Proper Health Care, while incomprehensibly, inhumanly expensive, is also instantaneous, infallible, without side effect and quite beyond painless. Sitting around ‘getting better’ is valuable killing-folk-taking-stuff time uselessly wasted. Only poor people get sick. Hell, only poor people DIE. Watch:

Cure Wounds (Any): Free
Remove Paralysis: 60 gold
Remove (any & all) Disease: 150 gold
Remove Blindness & Deafness: 300 gold
Regenerate (every limb, every organ): 910 gold
Raise Dead: 5,450 gold
True Resurrection: 26,530 gold

Not ever, ever having to say 'goodbye’: Priceless

15: Spending every cent that you own (and borrowing hundreds of thousands of dollars from your friends) in order to purchase a glowing chunk of metal from an old man in the woods is the best investment in your future you will ever make.

16: Money comes and goes like the wind, and having a lot of it will sometimes make getting more of it a problem – if a mysterious voice on the wind asks “Wait – how much do you have on your sheet?” you are about to (if poor) acquire a massive windfall, or (if rich) get gouged horribly/robbed blind the next time you sleep.

17: Money can buy everything, including beer, sex, servants, intelligence, better people skills, hats that shoot magical lasers and immortality. The few things that money cannot buy can be taken violently.

18: No one in the entire world accepts bribes, with the tiny exception of the very small percentage of the population who will actually OPENLY ASK for bribes.

19: Hiring people to work for you is in many ways similar to beating your head against a brick wall – you’ll never get anything accomplished, it sure isn’t fun, but damn does it feel good to stop.

99% of people you will ever meet would not agree to join you on something as simple as a run to the store for bread even for a small fortune in gold. On the other hand, 1% of all the people you will ever meet would eagerly follow you into Hell for no greater compensation than your company, and will inform you of such within seconds of meeting you.

20: The total value of everything in a coin-purse or wallet can be judged at a distance of thirty feet – and lifting a single gold piece off of a pile of gold the size of your house will give you an estimate accurate to within ten bucks of how much the entire thing is worth.

21: No one is above avarice. Think of the best, most selfless person you know: that guy will pull hunks of melted copper off of the corpses of orphans if he thinks it might bring him a single inch closer to buying a new sword.

22: Money spent on non-essentials might as well be thrown off a cliff, and shopping for non-awesome stuff is time wasted. Every pair of pants is identical, every set of boots is interchangeable, and unless the coat deflects fire-blasts, it is useless to you.

23: Poisons & explosives are over-priced, dangerous to their user, way too slow acting, and worst of all, piss-weak. They don’t work on half the monsters you’ll bump into – just on you. Save your money for ale and whores.

24: There are no rich losers, and there are no poor winners.

25: Money cannot buy happiness or respect. It can, however, buy you a flying castle with magical cannons that shoot flaming zombies at your foes, which is a f@+&-load better than either happiness or respect, which are VASTLY over-rated to begin with.

26: Fresh corpses are the only legitimate form of commerce.

There is no such thing as large-scale trade between kingdoms, realms, or gods-help-you, The Planes. Any business plan more elaborate than a farmer walking his cow to market is invariably the evil scheme of power-hungry undead potentates seeking to enslave the realm and poison the land under the flimsy guise of "commerce".

Mass manufacturing only results in irate Lizardmen raiding your keep "For Gaia!" complaining about pollution and your R&D department of ethically-challenged wizards summoning/raising/creating some unspeakable horror of unnatural badness that is 100% immune to all of the cool items you gathered legitimately from the corpses of fallen foes.

27: You want to cast spells, you better be ready to have some stinky pockets. A free and limitless source of bat guano or sulfur has absolutely no value as fertilizer or insecticide. It is, however, a major prerequisite for learning how to alter reality with your mind, because walking into a store and asking for 50 drams of bat poop is just so uncool.

28: On that topic: in addition, if you require, for your profession, bizarre and esoteric objects/substances like pinches of multi-colored sand, hunks of iron pyrite, live fireflies or small wooden replicas of archery targets, no worries - no one will ever charge you for these, and once bought, you will never run out of them.

On the other hand, you will most assuredly soon find yourself spending hundreds of thousands of dollars a week on diamonds, saffron, rubies, bits of silver and pearls the size of your fist with the sole intention of crushing them up into a fine powder and either consuming them (possibly snorting them, we're not sure) or rubbing them all over your naked body.

Your friends are also going to demand that you to spend weeks locked in seclusion, kissing the asses of various spirits and demons in order to get them some discount magical s%@#, which will cost YOU both money and raw life force - often, they will not take 'no' for an answer, and (because you are both tiny as well as smart) they are probably more than able to easily lift you over their heads and shake you until bat guano comes out of your pockets.

29: A critical hit is a fine substitute for a clever retort – and economically speaking, not all abilities are created equal. Por ejemplo:

- With an average Profession (Farmer) check of 30, on your own land, you can earn about 1 and one half silver a day.
- With an average Craft (Weapon) check of 30, in a small town, you can earn in the neighborhood of 6 gold a day.
- With an average Perform (Singing or Instrument) check of 30, in a prosperous city, you can earn 3d6 gold a day.
- With an average Knowledge: (Arcana or History) check of 30, in a metropolis, you can earn 900 gold an hour.
- With an average Sleight of Hand check of 30, in Sigil, you can earn about 1d4 minor magical items a minute.
- With a Base Attack Bonus of +30, anywhere, you can earn the title of King in six seconds or less.

Choose your profession carefully.

30: Caravans are often formed, which often travel to places where adventures can be found. Just pick the one that sounds the most suicidal-dangerous. It’ll do. The pay for being a guard on such a caravan is miniscule; however, creatures that carry on their persons any number of objects whose total value invariably exceeds that of the entire inventory of the caravan will inevitably attack said caravan, and soon.

While it can be logically argued that such creatures would never have accumulated such wealth had they simply paid for the goods and gone on their way, it remains a mystery as to why adventurers don't simply buy the caravan, throw the goods in a ditch, and have the guides lead them to the next plot hook without mucking around with wagons and other goods which limit the deployment of fireballs.

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband.

Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.

The second floor sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor.
This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.
Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opens a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money.

The third through sixth floors have never been visited.

Just for your edification:

I introduced the PHB PSAs to a couple of the people in my office several weeks ago. It's still not uncommon for one of them to creep up behind someone and shout "sneak attack" or otherwise randomly inject the phrase into a conversation.

None of them play D&D by the way, nor do they have a clue what the phrase means in game terms.

Two men climb ride the elevator to a nightclub on the tenth floor of a hotel, joining a third man at the bar.

The first man is obviously drunk. He turns to the third man and offers, "Hic! I bet ya twenny dollars that I c'n - hic - drink this in one gulp, then step off that there balcony without falling down!"

The third man, being a bit buzzed himself and eager to make some easy money (and not thinking much of the consequences), accepts the bet. The first man cooly drinks his undoubtedly strong drink, and to the third man's shock he steps off the tenth floor balcony and floats in mid-air!

The third man is exited and gladly hands over the money, then demands to try it himself. He drinks the same drink, takes the same step off the balcony, and promptly plummets to the ground below.

The second man turns to the first man and says, "Superman, you're horrible when you're drunk!"
