An episode of MMAPGaming features the host installing a lava pit in his house for disposing of unwanted items. He tears out his wood walls and replaces them with cobblestone so he won't burn his house down, then adds a low ceiling above the pit so he doesn't accidentally wander into it. The material he uses for the ceiling... is wood, because it looks nice with the rest of the house. The episode ends with him nearly losing his voice when the inevitable happens.
Pranks and traps
 One person complains how mining a gold block disconnects him, tricking a server admin straight into a trap.
I was playing in a shared world owned by another player. My "friend" and I shared a house, and while I was away he poured lava onto the roof. The only sign of this was a block descending from the second floor ceiling, which he expected me to destroy out of curiosity, killing myself. I saw the block but ignored it. Minutes later, the lava burned through the roof while I was on the first floor, leading to the following exchange:
Me: Holy f—- the house is flooding with lava!
Cue uncontrollable laughter as I burn to death.
Are you Jack from Achievement Hunter? Because Geoff and Gavin did the same thing to his house in Achievement city.
On my friend's personal server, someone's obscenely large tower/home was defaced with a wool billboard saying "(X) HAS A BIG, FLOPPY VAGINA." This ended up being our facebook group's photo. (He was cool with it.)
The absolutely epic Troll Mojang pulled off with the April Fools Day prank; Minecraft 2.0, featuring sensitive chickens that don't like being looked at, Redstone Bugs(literal ones, not glitches), and a stab at the people who want realism in the game via torches not lasting forever. Sadly, the page containing the download was taken down on April 2nd.
This poor player has a lot of trouble with creepers. It doesn't help that his friends like to disguise themselves as creepers to shock and traumatize him, and just when he thinks he's figured out which is which...
An LPer by the name of bananapielord had uploaded his Minecraft world for his fans to edit as they please, and spent the next few videos showcasing the worlds they sent back. The third world in this video, showcased seven minutes in, has some interesting changes made to his house. Hilarity Ensues when he accidentally sets off a block of TNT.
These two adventurers at the 14:00 point, find out that they don't make it in home in time, so they both build makeshift shelters, leading to a funny Inaction Sequence where they discover that one player lacks cobblestone to smelt glass in a furnace and the other finds out that he lacks sand so he can't make glass either. They find their own solutions to see outside. After a daybreak, they visit each other's "houses".
"Chickens fucking everywhere!". Someone finds out the properties of eggs when thrown at stuff (ie, they can spawn 1-4 chickens), so he and a bunch of friends mess with it, but they soon realise they've woken a sleeping giant here. Eventually the server overloads, especially when he tries something drastic.
This entire video. Filled with plenty of Angrish, pained cries of "WHAT THE FRICK", and failed attempts to ride a minecart, this stream has something for everyone!
Most items that involve the day/night cycle or direction start to bug out when you enter the Nether. However, the silliest case of this would have to be wood-and-wool beds exploding violently when one attempts to use them.
Heck, the entirety of "Enderman Roomate", especially "What the-".
Parts 31, 32, and 33 of his Minecraft videos are a textbook example of From Bad to Worse. in Part 31, Toby drowns in the water near his house when he forgets to surface for air. Then, because his bed was obstructed, he doesn't respawn in his house and has to find where he died, a problem made worse by his No Sense of Direction. In Part 32, Toby is forced to turn the game to peaceful mode as he dives for his items. Having spent half the video looking for his items, he goes off to bed... and dies because it was obstructed, losing his items and being teleported away from his house again. Part 33 is entirely comprised of him trying to find his house.
Someone made fun of the broken base, FOR EVERY UPDATE UP TO THE HALLOWEEN UPDATE! Link: Mojang goes bankrupt.
These SMP players tried to grief a griefer by encasing his house in a glass sphere and filling it with lava. Then it began to leak, and what results could be a scene from a typical disaster movie.
"We've created the Sun."
The 1.1 update added multiple language options. Guess what one of the options is? Pirate!
A chunks error can cause this◊ to happen. That player won't be running out of beef any time soon.
Version 1.2 introduces something that Creepers are afraid of: Cats. No, really. Tame a few and watch Creepers avoid you like the plague.
The code when enchanting, when translated, is completely random and nonsensical. What the nether is "shorten wet beast physical?"
Heck, ANY Game Chap mod review, especially the Herobrine series.
Team Avolition, a griefing team, was challenged to see how much griefing they could perform on the Doridian server before getting caught. Stealing 3,500 diamonds, burning down the fabled city, and annoying the crud out of an admin who has no ban powers are the LEAST of their accomplishments. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Awesome that they were able to pull this off in the first place.
Their jihad against the Rice-Think server was also glorious. The owner and his moderators started a smear campaign on both their website and Team AVO's forums, claiming that they had "won" and that they would "never be defeated." When their server went public, Team AVO found out that no attempt was made to hide or protect anything of value, and that the server's moderation team had the combined mental acuity of an acorn. Gather round and hear the tale of the dumbest admin who ever lived.
"Sometimes it's hard to be a God", featuring the Clay Mod, full of Literal Metaphors (such as the world being named "The Heavens and the Earth"), faux-epic moments (such as green and blue soldiers parachuting in on feathers), and ultimately culminating in God just deciding to delete "The Heavens and the Earth".
RubberRoss's Derpcraft. What's even funnier is that the cartoon was based on his initial reactions.
The Weeping Angel mod, when spotlighted by the Yogscast, has one of the Angels going into Simon's house, and he doesn't have a pickaxe to destroy it with. How is this solved? By digging a hole in the floor, getting the Angel to fall into it... and just putting floor blocks over it. There's now a Weeping Angel trapped under the floorboards. Problem solved.
After 34 minutes of fail in the 404 challenge, these two adventurers decide to give it one last try and make a "pimp room". The result is...well, just watch.
On the Caznowl FFA, this troper used 22 lava buckets and a ton of cobblestone to wreck the sign above spawn. The result? One heckuva lava fall, and both this troper and his friend getting killed.
The Mob Rap 2 has a few joke verses, which come from the Chicken and the Squid. Also, Skeleton's reaction to Herobrine showing up can be seen as this.
The Mob Rap 3 has ''Enzio'', of all people singing a joke verse. And it is awesome. Skeleton trying to critize the Wither's' performance can also be considered hilarious.
This video is probably the most cheerful death montage ever recorded. It showcases 50 noteworthy deaths from a player who is prone to maniacal laughter, blind panic, and general clumsiness all at once.
The sequel video shows that this player has become more skilled, such that one of the only things keeping him from remaining alive is his sister, who is just as hysterical as he is.
The Luckiest Minecraft Player Ever, who mines a block directly underneath him in the Nether, falls directly into lava, must swim to a very far shore, is attacked by two Ghasts, and falls into a 2 by 2 lava hole—and somehow makes it out alive.
A Spanish LPer, while on Hardcore mode, tried to ensure his small house was safe, using a gate made of pistons and an alarm made of notes. The idea of using just an iron door apparently didn't cross his mind. The massive structure for the machinery took a lot of space, being several times bigger than the house itself. It was so poorly designed that it prevented him from enlarging the house, as it was surrounded on all its sides by the machinery. Not to mention that it took himquitesometime. The funny part? All this didn't help him when a creeper entered his house. Just see his Heroic BSODhere. The worst part? The creeper entered through the structure he had created to build the alarm. He could have avoided it if he hadn't built it in the first place.
The same LPer tried to get some steaks by killing some cows with fire. Instead of using flint and steel like anyone else would have done, this LPer tried it with lava. Unfortunately for him, when trying to get back the lava after burning the first cow, a misclick gave him a bucket of milk and a very hot death.
In 1.6, the villagers were given voices. They also eerily resemble Squidward. Three guesses to who their talking sounds like...
Step 1: Play single player. Step 2: go about normally. Step 3: Make a stick or just grab a stick you have premade due to grossly overestimating how many sticks you need. Step 4: Get an anvil. Step Five: Create THE STICK OF DESTINY!
Spawning on a tiny island far, far, FAR away from any sort of mainland, and only having a small tree to work with is as fun as having a diamond pick shoved up your nose. Proceeding to turn all of the wood into sticks and not getting a sapling, however, is funny once your mind registers what you just did.
The ending deserves special mention as it's done in the style of a movie trailer.
From the animator of Bite-Sized Minecraft, we have Villager News, which provides a hilarious interpretation of the villagers as they make their own news channel to showcase news stories that would otherwise be too mundane to even report. Almost every technological object not found in Minecraft are made up of villagers.
Testificate News, a extra for the aforementioned Villager News 2, addresses the problem by showing various villagers parodying various people trying to stop the spaceship. It doesn't work. And then the newscaster gets sucked into the spaceship...
On a server I liked going on, one of the many mods player gave me wood and diamonds. A pickaxe followed. The issue is the button to the admin castle that is normally unallowed to access is made of iron blocks, and with proper timing, the button can be pressed. One time, I went there and jumped into the crater of a possible old failed build of it. One admin named "Shaun" came over, and saw me. What followed was indeed a temporary ban for about 10-15 minutes, but the words before that was hilarious.
