Never was the word "comic" more appropriate than in these scenes.

  • One scene with Mo and her girlfriend, Sydney the gender studies professor, in Dykes to Watch Out For:
    Sydney: Yes! I'll come to the movies with you! Now say it! Say it!
    Mo (looking bored:) Oh baby. Let me privilege lesbian positionality by destabilizing your bodily metanarrative.
  • In Deff Skwadron if it wasn't awesome it was funny. From the way orks "aim" (if you hit it, it must be the enemy!), to a battle where another skwadron didn't show up because they're thinking about joining the other side.
  • Stone Island does have a few funny moments, particularly when the hideously disfugured Harry Rivers lets rip:
    Trooper Mckee: Why aren't we getting cut to ribbons?
    Harry: Well, in my professional opinion as runner-up in the prolapsed arsehole lookalike contest, I'd say it's got somethin' t'do with them fairy fellas!
    • This speech from Harry:
      In 1897, the right Reverend Jephson Allcock, humanitarian, philanthropist and inventor of the "strike a light" reusable match, decided the lost souls of Long Barrow needed more than just a pot to piss in. Now he had some clout did the Reverend Jeph, moral and monetary. He convinced the board of governors to come around to his way of thinking; lo it came to pass there was to be a khazi in every cell, 'cept there was a catch- this cold-titted bitch of a building's solid granite. You stand more chance of charmin' a nun's knickers off than drivin' a nail in the wall. So they rebuilt Long Barrow inside itself, like them Russian dolls, with all the gubbins in the gap. Which is why we're clingin' to this 'ere wall like crabs on a nadger, tryin' not to soil ourselves... which is quite ironic when you think about it! Ain't the Internet grand?
    • "What did your last servant die of?" "Anally inserted footwear! Jump to it!"
  • In ABC Warriors, when a group of Hammerstein units realize they're facing certain destruction. "We can die knowing that we were cost-effective."
  • After Freddie's "fight" with Katchoo in Strangers in Paradise:
    Casey: Freddie! Say something!
    Freddie: LAWSUUUUIT!
  • In Generation 2: Redux, we have this golden moment:
    Clench: "Cindersaur! Eat this." * tosses him a canister of Forestonite*
    Cindersaur: "'Kay!" * catches it in his mouth*
    Sky-Byte: "No! It's not meant to be taken orally!"
  • From Science Comics' Dinosaurs: Fossils And Feathers, page 53 makes a mention of Brontosaurus becoming an invalidated genus with a panel showing "Brontosaurus" saying "What's up, guys?" only to be ignored by the other sauropods. Then, at Page 112, the very end of the book…
    Caption: A lengthy re-examination of the different species of Apatosaurus led researchers to conclude that there were enough differences to make Brontosaurus its own genus again, weeks before this book was due at the printer.
    Brontosaurus: <smirking> What's up, guys?
    Author MK Reed: This is so awkward.
    Illustrator Joe Flood: Can we pretend we don't see him?
    Caption: Fact: Brontosaurus is now MK and Joe's least favourite dinosaur.
    • Basically, the book tried to point out how Science Marched On with Brontosaurus when it was merged with Apatosaurus, only to find itself on the receiving end of this trope at the eleventh hour.
