Three guys go out on a wild weekend in a South American Country.

Monday morning, they wake up, can't remember what happened, & are suprised to find themselves on death row.

The first guy is strapped into the electric chair, & the guard asks, "Do you have any last words?"

The guy says, "Yes. I am a minister & a graduate of Duke University. I believe that if I am innocent, God will protect me & not let me die."

The executioner throws the switch. Nothing happens. Amazed at the miracle, they let the minister go.

The second guy is strapped into the electric chair & asked if he has any last words.

He says, "Yes. I am a lawyer, & a graduate of LSU law school. I believe in the absolute power of justice, & that if I am innocent, I will not be allowed to die."

They throw the switch, nothing happens. Awed, they let the lawyer go.

The third guy is strapped into the electric chair & asked if he has any last words.

He says, "Yes. I am an electrical engineer & and a graduate of Auburn University. And I don't think this thing will work unless you connect those two wires lying on the floor right over there...

"All clear, guys."

"Gummy werebears? They should be cake to kill once they turn human."

"Wait a minute, didn't the old man say something about a curse?"

"Hey, where'd all the big spiders come from?"

"Mysterious shadows in the room? I'm not scared --- you can't spook me!"

"There's a smell of gas, huh? Well, my lantern is hooded. It ought to be safe."

"Take off my armor and try to swim? Forget it --- I worked hard to get this +3 plate mail. Besides, the DM never lets anyone die --- he wouldn't let me drown, would he?"

"I cast a lightning bolt at the ochre jelly."

"Lightning bolts don't ricochet off stone walls, do they?"

"A ballista? What's that? How many dice of damage does it do?"
{Twenty.It's like a crossbow, only MUCH larger.}

"So what if he calls the guard? A backwater town like this can't have a very big militia."

"Only six inches long? Ha... Wait, you don't mean six _scale_ inches, do you?" {said in miniature-figures-game. Character itself was 3/4" high.}

"...and then I... Uh, guys? Why are looking at me like that? Guys?" {After using a spell called "Polymorph Other" }

GM:"You DID take the swimming skill?" (to a player when character fell overboard.)

"I'll stand guard." (Didn't want to enter orc cave.Orcs were out. Orcs came back.)

"What do you mean I hear water?" {in a tunnel}

"I bar the door!" {Door opened inward.}

"I'll cover you!"

"Take out a Beholder's eyes, and Bingo!"

"I can't possibly miss..."

"Don't worry, I can hit him! I can hit him!"

NPC:"Take this ring as a token of my esteem." {This party no longer accepts gifts from unknown NPC's.}

REPLY:"Begone thing of good."

"But the directions SAID to `pull pin and throw' !" [From a beautifully role-played Traveler character from a non- technological world. He was given a scout ship survival pack, which among other gimcracks, contained concussion grenades. When he got in trouble, of course, he pulled the pin out of one and threw it ("it" being the pin, naturally)...]

"Uh, what does 'explosive decompression' mean?"

"Why the hell do you always put `Graf' before your name? Is that this backward planet's equivalent of `Duke' or something?"

"Don't worry - I have Pilot-7."

"What do you mean `energy weapons are illegal' ?"


"Easy kill."

"I've got you now!"

"Is this one really able to breath fire?"

"Trust me. I know what I'm doing"

"I open the door and see who it is." {in response to a knock on the door}

"I jump off the roof - He won't get my last HP then."

"Oh cute! Look at the fuzzy little cubs!"

"Your armor is too noisy. Wait here and I'll scout ahead."

"I explain to the ogre that it was an honest mistake."

"Oh, he puts those in all of his dungeons. It's a gas spore."

"Hubba hubba! The nymph's taking off her clothes!"

"Whoever did this must be long gone by now."

"Easy, boy. What's this stupid horse's problem?"

"You mean ... this ... is the last ... torch?"

"Oh don't worry. The poisonous ones have orange stripes."

"I really didn't know it was against the law."

"You racist! They're elves. So what if they're black?" [Big Grin]

Ibsen, Henrik (1828-1906)

"On the contrary."

Henrik Ibsen was a Norwegian playwright who achieved international recognition for such classics as A Doll's House and Hedda Gabler. Ibsen suffered a stroke in 1900 and spent the last years of his life confined to bed. One day, he heard his nurse remark to a visitor that he was feeling better. "On the contrary," cut in Ibsen just before he died.

Jackson, Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" (1824-1863)

"Order A.P. Hill to prepare for action! Pass the infantry to the front rapidly! Tell Major Hawks. . . . Let us cross over the river and sit under the shade of the trees." [/b]

Stonewall Jackson was one of the premier Confederate generals of the American Civil War. He was mistakenly wounded by his own men on 2 May 1863 during the battle of Chancellorsville in Virginia, and his left arm had to be amputated. General Robert E. Lee decided that Jackson should recuperate in a safe refuge and ordered that Jackson be transported to Guinea Station about 30 miles from the front lines. Jackson endured the ambulance ride well and was expected to eventually recover. Pneumonia set in, however, and by Sunday, 10 May, it became clear that Jackson would not last through the day. Jackson remarked to his physician, "I have always desired to die on Sunday," and lapsed into delirium before he died at 3:15 p.m.
Jackson's chaplain, B. Tucker Lacy, who attended to the general at Guinea Station reported that during the ordeal General Lee spoke to him of Jackson, "He has lost his left arm, but I have lost my right arm."

Jefferson, Thomas (1743-1826)

"This is the Fourth?"

Both Thomas Jefferson and his old friend and rival John Adams died on the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. On the evening of 3 July 1826, Jefferson roused from semi-consciousness on his deathbed and asked an attendant, "This is the Fourth?" To comfort Jefferson, the man replied that it was. Jefferson smiled with satisfaction and returned to sleep. He died just after noon on the following day.

Joan of Arc, Saint (1412-1431)

"Hold the cross high so I may see it through the flames!"

Joan was the youngest of five children of Jacques d'Arc, a peasant farmer from Domremy. She began to hear "voices" when she was thirteen that told her she was to serve the Dauphin and save France. Joan was repeatedly rebuffed in her attempts to join the French army until she successfully predicted its defeat at the Battle of Herrings in 1429. Afterwards, a local commander sent her to the Dauphin. When she recognized the disguised Dauphin hiding in a group of courtiers, he sent her to be examined by group of theologians at Poitiers. After three weeks of questioning, they proclaimed that her voices were genuine.
The Dauphin then sent her to serve with the Army as it fought to lift the siege of Orleans. There, clad in a suit of armor, she led her men and saved the city by capturing several English forts. Later that year she led the French army to an even more important victory at Troyes. This allowed the Dauphin to be crowned Charles VII at Reims, and Joan stood at his side during the ceremony. She continued to lead the army until she was captured by Burgundians at Compiegne and turned over to the English. Charles made no effort to save her, and in fact, some have suggested that he helped arrange her capture as part of a secret deal with the Burgundians.
Joan was tried in a religious court for heresy and witchcraft, and although she defended herself well, she was forced or tricked into denying her "voices" and promising never again to wear men's clothes. Later, she once more dressed as a man and was declared a heretic. She was burned at the stake in the Rouen marketplace, and her ashes were thrown into the Seine. Twenty-five years later, her case was reopened by Pope Callistus III, and she was found innocent. Joan was canonized by Pope Benedict XV in 1920.

Jolson, Al (Asa Yoelson) (1886-1950)

"This is it! I'm going. I'm going."

Al Jolson was born in Lithuania and immigrated with his family to the United States in 1895. He began his career singing in burlesque, minstrel shows, and vaudeville before becoming a star on Broadway. Jolson is, perhaps, best remembered for his starring role in The Jazz Singer, the first full-length talking motion picture. After Jolson died in 1950, he was posthumously awarded a Congressional Medal of Merit for his untiring efforts to provide entertainment for U.S. military forces.
