The Tuesday Sundries - Monty Python and Humor References in your Game

A recent article on the RadioTimes.com website, titled "Giant dead parrot unveiled in London to pay tribute to Monty Python," got me thinking about how often Monty Python , particularly those from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), gets referenced around the game table over the years during tabletop roleplaying games.  From Holy Hand Grenades and Killer Rabbits, to shouting "Run Away" when retreat is required, and when fighting a foe who seems to shrug off damage like the Black Knight, there are simply too many to list in a single blog post.  You'd almost have to post the full script.

Since there is a new edition of D&D coming out, maybe it would be useful to prep some of the new players joining the fold on ways to bring "teh funny" to your games.  With that in mind, I thought it might be nice to build a flowchart of possible quotes to trot out during various tabletop RPG situations.  What are the favorites around your tables?

(Keep it clean for the younger gamers among us, please.)
