The understand the humor at our game table, it's critically important to be familiar with the following source material (particularly common references are quoted in parenthesis.)
Gauntlet ("Wizard is about to die!" and "Warrior needs food, badly!")
Yellowbeard ("Killing plants!" and the general attitude of the whole game.)
The Three Amigos ("Are you the singing bush?" and "You don't want to die with a sissy gun like that, you want to die with a man's gun." And a dozen others. "Paco, hold out your hat!")
Futurama ("Murder isn't working and it's all we're good at!" and any comments about "damned Neutrals!")
If you want to understand the rest of the humor, it's worth being closely familiar with:
Strange Brew ("You came to me with a mouse in the bottle. Now you are the mouse." "Perhaps one of these will change your mind, eh?" And too, too many others to count, eh?)
Kelly's Heroes ("Make a deal" and "I've been thinking nothing but positive thoughts about that goddamned bridge!")
The Blues Brothers (full version, for "I'm going to be a priest!")
Samurai Cat (for "not even the glyphs."
It's sometimes helpful to be familiar with:
The Princess Bridge (only for "Fezzik, tear his arms off" and the inventory scene)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (just because.)
You'd think those would come up more often, but they really don't. Something like half of the stupid stuff we say at the table is The Three Amigos . . .
How about you guys?
