* One RPG group has a standing house rule that any briefing that goes by without a death is regarded as a failure. As such, much hilarity has ensued. Par example, these 3 consecutive sessions:
**
---> Friend Computer: The medical chimpanzees are waiting outside. Who would like to play a game of ping pong?
---> ''Two-thirds of the players assent to this, albeit cautiously.''
---> Friend Computer: Ping pong is an unsanctioned game. Only sanctioned games provide sufficient happiness. Report for re-education.
*** Re-education, incidentally, consisted of being attacked by the aforesaid (Computer controlled) monkeys.
**
---> Friend Computer: This concludes the briefing. [[ShmuckBait Who would like to play a game of poker?]]
---> ''{{Beat}}''
---> ''[[TooDumbToLive One guy raises his hand]]''
---> Friend Computer: A desire to play poker indicates a desire to spread wealth. Spreading wealth is communism. Communism is treason.
---> ''Turret drops from the ceiling and frags him''
---> Friend Computer: Have a nice daycycle.
**
---> Friend Computer: Who would like to play a game of Trivial Pursuit?
---> ''The players, wary by now, keep silent''
---> Friend Computer: Unwillingness to play games indicates an unnaturally low level of happiness. Happiness is mandatory. You will all be dispatched to the Happiness Enhancement room.
*** A death trap obstacle course, naturally.
* Thirty years later, going up to a person who once played ''Paranoia'' and even mentioning the title "Me and My Warbot, Mark IV" can cause that former player to immediately collapse into a gale of laughter.
* One RPG group got midway through a mission before deciding they needed a ladder. As their GM was feeling particularly benevolent, she told them [[DeusExMachina one of their roommates was walking by with a ladder]]. However, the GM was not feeling ''that'' benevolent, and this exchange ensued:
-->'''GM''' Your roommate informs you that he has fallen madly in love with this ladder and will not part with it.
-->'''Player''': I inform him that... [[BlatantLies the ladder has been cheating on him. With me.]]
-->'''GM''': Your roommate does not believe you and reminds you that lying is treason.
-->'''Player''': I remind him that only lying to ''Friend Computer'' is treason.
-->'''GM''': Your roommate informs you that he ''is'' Friend Computer.
-->'''Player''': ...I remind him that lying is treason.
