* Expect a KillerGameMaster with a LiteralGenie streak to do this if the player doesn't specify ''exactly'' what part of a grenade you're actually throwing.

This one often comes about due to a misinterpretation of the instruction "[[AmbiguousSyntax pull the pin]] [[ExactWords and throw]]".

** A common variation is that one of the two, after pulling the pin, attempts to throw the grenade with all his might, only to discover that the grenade is attached to his hand due to chewing gum, ultra strong glue, or whatever sticky substance he had previously held.

A character pulls the pin off a grenade and proceeds to throw ... the pin, and keeps the grenade in hand. Very common in cartoons.

* In the "Bloodsuckers Are Not Sexy" arc of ''FafnirTheDragon'', one of the vampires is an expert with grenades... only he wound up throwing the ''pins'' at [[{{Dracula}} Vlad the Impaler]]. It ends exactly how you'd expect.

* Some poor recruits and trainees end up doing this under stress. Thankfully, most instructors and drill sergeants are ready to save the unfortunate newbie before any accidents happen.
** Unfortunately for the recruits, this involves a Sergeant composed of well over 230 pounds of muscle (Grenade Range Sergeants are selected, it seems, from a pool of body builders) slapping the grenade out of the private's hand (if it's not on the ground yet), picking the private up by the scruff of the neck and his/her belt, and body-slamming the poor sap into the ground on the opposite side of the concrete bunker that protects recruits from short throws. Not pleasant.

* There's a variation in the obscure British sketch show ''TheSteamVideoCompany'', where a soldier pulls the pin on a grenade then opens a can of Coke, throws the can and puts the grenade to his mouth.
