According to his website, Day[9] is a stand-up comedian. This explains the high ratio of amusement in the show.

    The Dailies 
  • "A Daily with no story," from Day[9] Daily #337 Part 2 (starts at around 14:30). And I quote: "We are going to watch this game and, with not a single word spoken, we are going to receive... a story. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: grenelve vs. Goose."
    • To explain, the Funday Monday challenge is for a Terran to immediately lift-off and move somewhere. It's TvT, and Goose kills one of his six workers, loads the other five up, and flies his CC off the map. Then he says, via chat, "[Proxy Error #404: Disconnecting]". His opponent sends a worker out to scout as normal, sees no base there, and then... disconnects, scoring Goose the win.
    • "The end!"
  • In one of the Day9 Dailies Funday Monday episodes, Day9 is commenting when one of the players, after hearing that this was for a Funday Monday, says that he hates Day9 for ruining Christmas for his daughter. Day9 looks appalled at this and is categorically denying that he did anything to his daughter and is utterly incensed at the accusation. Then the guy elaborates, saying he was watching one of his casts with his daughter and Day9 cracked a joke about Santa Claus not being real, which utterly destroys this little girl. Cut to Day9 looking sheepishly into the camera.
  • From Day9 Daily #381, though you'll only get it if you're knowledgeable on college-level math:
    The inches of my penis form a countably infinite set, because when you think your out of more inches you can simply find more by inspection.
    If you draw a curve of her pleasure in bed with me, she gets asymptotic close to climax. And right when she is like "I'm epsilon there, I epsilon there!" that’s when I climax, and you see it breaks off like a step function. Because at that point sex is no longer continuous.
  • Funday Mondays #293 and #381: The Worst 2v2 Partner Of All Time. So popular, it merited reprising later. The only place you'll see a match where one player uses a 6-pool tactic to kill his ally, while one on the other team takes it to mean "build six spawning pools" and is left with precisely 0 Worker Units and 0 minerals.
  • Funday Monday #551: Day[9]'s rather (accidentally) suggestive Nydus Worm impression, and the request to the community not to 'shop inappropriate GIF images from it. Day[9] himself begins laughing hysterically when he realises he was "practicing for Valentine's Day".
  • Funday Monday #604: Mind Games with ItMeJP. Day[9] and JP are basically just messing around, doing their placement matches in the most bass-ackwards way possible, when Sean's sound cuts out. The rest... you must see to believe.

  • Episode 3 stars Large Ham Jesse "OMFGcata" Cox, and things quickly go Off the Rails, starting with an accent-collecting Seacoast Drake to an absolutely overwhelming block phase to Jesse's complete and total Mana Flood.
    • To give an idea of just how Mana Flooded Jesse was, by turn 8 he concedes, as he only has 2 weak creatures out and 2 Islands in his hand, while Sean has 6 strong creatures that he can boost. For fun, they then agree to make some absurd plays before Day[9] finishes him off. After a bunch of nonsense plays, Jesse says his final play before ending his turn will be playing a bunch of cards off the top of his deck. He proceeds to place down 6 lands. Cue hysterical laughter
    Jesse: I was thoroughly punished for that!
    • Special mention also has to go out to Jesse's turn 5 rant about the Merfolk and his Seacoast Drake.
  • Episode 9 stars Allie Brosh of Hyperbole and a Half. It starts out pretty straightforward (especially since, believe it or not, Brosh was probably the single best player on the show up until that point)... but after they're done, they start playing Silly Magic and making it all up as they go.
  • Episode 11 is against Joshua Ovenshire of Smosh Games. It begins when Sean has problems explaining that Jovenshire "equipped his Rhino," and involves Joven hitting a full-on Heroic BSoD when Sean drops a major bomb card.

  • During a 12-hour livestream marathon to help raise votes for Rosanna Pansino's campaign at King of the Web, Day9 promised to allow Jesse Cox to apply make-up to his face if Ro broke 910,000 votes. She did, and he did. There were no survivors.
  • The outro to Part 18 of the Mostly Walking play through of Grim Fandango.
    America's Pub!
  • At the end of 2018, Day9, Tasteless, Artosis and iNcontroL threw a three-day Christmas tournament in the San Francisco Bay Area, inviting bunches of people (as well as Sean and Nick's mother) to compete and have fun. As they stalled while a 2v2 Archon Mode game was being set up, Geoff became deeply indignant about something:
    iNcontroL: "It's pseudo-common practice in the States that when you buy a house, the seller — now illegally, in most places — can ask for you to write a letter as to why you are the right fit for that house. Isn't that weird?"
    Tasteless: "Write a letter?"
    iNcontroL: "Literally write a letter."
    Tasteless: "That's really weird."
    iNcontroL: "Like you're applying for a college. Your letter would be why your family's the right fit..."
    Artosis: "That doesn't make sense."
    iNcontroL: "Why it's important to you..."
    Artosis: "What?? So weird!"
    iNcontroL: "It's common practice."note 
    Artosis: "Why would you need to be the right fit for a house??"
    iNcontroL: "Why does the person selling it care??? 'Gimme the money!' "
    Artosis: "This is like someone at the grocery store, and like you're buying peanut butter, and... 'Why do you want this peanut butter?' You're like..." (gibberish) "...'To eat it.'"
    iNcontroL: " 'To put on my weiner!' "
    (assorted laughter)
    Tasteless: " '...That was the right answer, sir, here you go. I was worried you were just gonna eat that with celery. Okay.' "

How well does it match the trope?
