funny things in games

Has this thread been done already? Sorry if it has.

What are funny things that you have seen in games (intentional or not)

EG: when creating the save game disk in Cannon Fodder it aks you to make it a coffee and pour it in its vents lol - hope nobody actually did

And then it just says loads of random funny stuff like "Banana in disk drive error" etc.

What have you guys/girls seen thats made you chuckle

In the final level of The Untouchables you can shoot at a cat and if you hit it, it's head comes off and bounces around the screen.

Speaking of loading/saving screens, in Baldur's Gate the game reminds you that "while your characters do not need to eat, you do. We don't want to lose any dedicated players."

Now that's confidence in their product. Better than food.

As far as unintentional, all the dialogue in Flashback.

Since it is in French, I'll just translate the fact that the commentator says that the walking animation reminds him of John Cleese in the Ministry of silly walks sketch:

The surprised elephant restart-points in Trolls and the attacking soldiers knocking on the door of the enemy hut in The Settlers come to mind. Wizkid has a few funny moments, the dog with the newspaper for example. I remember Mega-Lo-Mania feeling humourous as well, though nothing specific comes to mind now.
