All-Time Favorite Adventure Game Jokes

What are your all-time favorite adventure game jokes?

My list would have to include...

MANIAC MANSION DEATH GAGS

+ Getting Razor to microwave and give the dead hamster to Weird Ed is probably the most twisted and demented gag of all, but in a warm and cuddly kind of way.

+ Drowning your buddy in the nuclear reactor cooling pool.

+ Microwaving the pool water. I like how the character runs around the kitchen like a chicken with it's head cut off yelling "Ahhhhh! Radioactive steam!"

+ Showing the Green Tentacle your record contract.

+ Playing the tentacle mating call record for the Green Tentacle. I like this joke because it's romantic.

+ The various ways of blowing up the house, and the awesome music that follows.

They're all brilliant!


SPACE QUEST 3

+ Sneaking into Scumsoft, and facing Elmo Pug. The whole Scumsoft thing was the perfect parody of Microsoft's reaction to software pirating. I wonder if software managers still have bull whips at software companies.

+ Thermal weave underwear for extreme heat. Classic.

The list could go on and on...

  • Glottis and his drinking/gambling problem was great. Actually, Glottis was just all round great.

    Also the point where you escape from both a snake's stomach and quicksand in MI3 were great.

  • I like the wishing well jokes from Hit the Road, where you throw cash in the wishing well.

    Sam: "I wish I knew what max was thinking"
    Above Max's head ., .., ...., ........, !
    Sam: "Well that was a waste of money"

    The "The End" screen well joke was funny too.

    The snake gag was pretty funny. I liked how you could clearly see Guybrush standing in the snake... like "ehh, no big deal..." I wonder if any of the Telltale guys pull pranks around the office with ipecac in the coffee.

    Plus, the Edutainment gag (Who's John Muir?)

    And...:
    Snukey's Guy: Here's the key.
    Sam: "That's a big rasp!"
    Max: "Out of toilet paper?"

    HA!

  • A thought occured to me: Insult Swordfighting!

  • How appropriate. You fight like a cow!

  • Narrator in Space Quest 6 after Roger Wilco picks up a plank about 4X his size:
    "Bet you can't fit that thing into your pants."

    Shoop.

    "Guess I was wrong; it does fit. There must be plenty of spare room in there."

  • Mine is more of a puzzle, but it's still funny as hell...

    Sam & Max: Hit The Road

    Take Jesse James severed hand.
    Attach it to broken golf ball retriever.
    Have it hold fish shaped magnet.
    Jam it into the worlds largest ball of twine.
    Magnet attracts psychic mood ring.
    Return psychic mood ring to hippie moleman living in the Mystery Spot.
    He tells you to go to frog rock.

    (Also, when searching for Frog Rock, I found the amazing argyle forest... I literally fell out of my chair at that one...)

  • Anything from Monkey Island tickles me!
