The Oubliette-verse might be full of soap opera craziness, but sometimes there are funny gems to make you crack up.
* NVAE #15, over in Oubliette-1127, some [[SarcasmMode initial setbacks]] in trying to expose Prince Oscar get Magnitude, Greystone, the Drifter and the Farouks thrown into the dungeon. Due to the Astral Plane connection of this prison, Gabriel and Gabrielle start freaking out, then something comes out of the shadows.
->'''Gabriel''': ''[panicking]'' "Who's there?"
->'''That something''': "You want to know who I am? I am He Who Is Called 'That One Guy'; Nemesis of the Number Four; Grand Herald of the Letter 'M'; The Most Sought-After Dog Trainer in the Western Panhandle; Honorary Chairman of the Andrew Koening Fan Club; Brobdingnagian Emperor of the Lilliputians; He Who Used the Last Kleenex; Wielder of the Mighty Stalactite of Justice; Sole Survivor of the Flemish Royal Navy; Cat Owner; Toucher of More Boobs Than You; and Just a Darn Good Fellow, Esquire. But you can call me Warden Bulwark."
* And when Greystone tells him to stop talking for a moment.
->'''Warden Bulwark:''': "I hear what you're saying, yes. You make some very valid points. Before we sit down to discuss these matters, does anyone have a glove?"
->'''The Drifter''': "I did, but they took my bag."
->'''Warden Bulwark''': "Well, when in need..." [[GloveSlap [snaps his left hand off at the wrist and slaps Greystone across the face with it] ]] "You have insulted my honor, sir! I demand satisfaction!"
* And then there's the brief fight that [[ItMakesSenseInContext could have been avoided if Kas had just hugged Bulwark.]]
* In NVAE #19: Love Connection, Mike Mitchell is kidnapped by Crux and subjected to some terrible stuff. (Thanks to Martin, [[UnexplainedRecovery he got better]].)
What becomes black humor and CrossesTheLineTwice occurs in NVAE #21: Double Dare when Lex finally learns about this from Doug Droll.
->'''Lex:''' "Okay, I'll bite, what happened to Mike?" ''[lowers voice]'' [[TheDiseaseThatShallNotBeNamed "He didn't uh, get something from Thorn did he?"]]
->'''Doug:''' "You know that guy who tried to grab her that night? The one you and Violet stopped? He joined some group of NS haters. They grabbed Mike and they cut off his... What's the word? C-something?"
->'''Lex:''' "They cut off his '''cock?!'''"
->''[All activity in the cafeteria comes to a grinding halt.]''
->'''Doug:''' ''[utterly embarrassed]'' "No, his, uh... I mean, the other C-word. Cat rations?"
->'''Lex:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint "The other C word? Uh... Mike is a guy.... 'sides even I don't use the other C word."]] ''[shifts uncomfortably]'' "My Mom gets mad if I swear. But she would, like, literally castrate me if caught me using the C word!"
->'''Doug:''' "Castrate! That's it! That's the word!"
->'''Lex:''' "They cut off his [[NoIndoorVoice balls?!]]"
