  • The end of the editorial of January 21st
    '''TNT: "Yes, those were very nice manners! We'll make a mental note to call her Natalie from now on. :) Even mr.coconut will start calling her by her new name. Isn't that right, mr.coconut?"
    mr.coconut: "GOOD NIGHT, GOOD NIGHT!"
    TNT: "Nono, mr.coconut. Natalie."
    mr.coconut: "Good... Night?"
    TNT: "Na-ta-lee."
    mr.coconut: "Goo-d ni-ght."
    TNT: "Good night, mr.coconut."
    mr.coconut: "GOOD NIGHT!"
  • One of the winning captions to this photo[1], which started the whole "Mr. Coconut" meme in the first place:
    '''"Ahh Mr.sneky i see you are wering your fance top" "You are wereing yor's too mr.coconut" "Speaking of coconut,were did you get the new flying hat of coconut?" "Wat coconut?" "Ohh that coconut near my had WAT a coconut on my had!" "BOOM!" "AHHH MY HEAD" "GOOD NIGHT mr.coconut"
    • Not that funny? This clothing item was then released. [2]
  • YOUR HORSE IS NOW DIAMONDS!. This was a response to a user saying, "Look at me. Too bad your artists aren't me. I'm on a horse."
  • During the release of the Faeries' Ruin plot:
    • After chapter one, the fate of a pie which had also been petrified along with the faeries was an ongoing meme on the Neoboards. This was referenced in Lenny Conundrum round 375, Random Contest number 201, and the Neopian Times Editorial number 462. Ultimately, a stone pie was released as a plot prize.
    Description: Poor pie...still stone. Mmm...crunchy.
    • After the plot, if one went to the page where they were holding the Faerie Festival, they would find the pie, fully restored, sitting on a bench.
    • After Faerieland crashed to the ground, calling it "epic" on the neoboards became a meme to the point of absurdity. Eventually the Commemorative Epic Lithograph was released as a plot prize.
    • A player sent in a question to the Neopian Times asking if the stuff around Jazan's eyes was part of his curse, or if it was just guyliner. Their answer? ''It's Cursed Guyliner.'' Mildly amusing. And then the plot prizes came out.

    • Via the Neopets Facebook page, TNT the story of how plot puzzle programmer Mr. Insane grew a beard until the end of the plot. As TNT tells it, he had half-shaved it before he was stopped because the prize shop was still unfinished, and could not shave off the rest until he had completed it.
  • This. An average conversation in TNT headquarters.
    Dragona: is anyone going to grump at me if we don't have a billboard for Coltzan Day?
    Mr. Insane: WHAT HOW DARE YOU
    Comastar: This is what really killed Coltzan... :(
    Mr. Insane: He died of a broken heart
    DJ Skellington: My daughter was really looking forward to that billboard.
    Comastar: One day she's going to look back and ask you, "Daddy, how come you didn't have a Coltzan Day billboard in 2011?"
    Comastar: You'll just have to break it to her gently. :(
    DJ Skellington: "(Mini DJ), there is no Coltzan Day billboard."
    DJ Skellington: Her childhood will end on that day.
    Dirigibles: Darn it, now I have to rewrite my will. It currently leaves all of my worldly possessions to "the person that posts the Coltzan Day billboard"
    Comastar: What a shame. It will now have to go to charity.
    Comastar: "The Grundo Reeducation Fund"
    Comastar: Curse you, Sloth!!!

  • TNT's response to trolls. It's a picture of a Chomby saying, "Haters gonna hate."
  • And now, TNT gets in on more meme fun! When asked for more memes after the picture of the Chomby saying, "Haters gonna hate!", they post petpets falling off a cliff (not dangerously), a Cyborg Kougra, and a rainbow.
  • TNT's randomness emerges, and an... interesting question. The randomness is a picture of two dancing bananas and a Lenny dressed as a cookie, and the interesting question is "Is it true that you can only get 'Pink Slorg' as an answer to the 'Which Petpet are You?' Quiz?".
  • Dragona and Jazan get in on some editorial fun.
    • Dragona says, "Release the pikis," but then notes that doesn't sound as cool as "hounds".
    • Dragona is confused over why the "cancelled due to lack of interest" day isn't interesting and wonders if it's because it's cancelled, causing a paradox.
    • Jazan tries to answer the question Dragona didn't, but she interrupts so the question is now still unanswered.
    • Jazan with a mustache, top hat and monocle!
      • More Jazan, and Hanso, and a... thing. Hanso makes up a question, Jazan snarks at him, Jazan and Hanso dismiss two questions for being too ridiculous, Jazan cites his soul as the heaviest item in Neopia, and Hanso posts the picture of the thing, which is a half-Gelert-half-bird.
  • Robot Uni Attack! They post a picture of a Robot Uni who looks like Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
  • The "Return of Dr. Sloth" plot, Chapter 4, right as Dr. Sloth's plan is going into effect:
    Dr. Sloth: Excellent. The pieces are falling into place nicely.
    The next panel shows that Dr. Sloth is putting together a jigsaw puzzle.
  • Hanso and Jazan have to take over the editorial again after the Editorialist hears one too many questions about Neopet trading. Hilarity Ensues. Highlights include:
  • In Editorial #627, one user thanked TNT for making the Royal Dofrey available, because now he could have his own Dofrey Baratheon.
  • For a few Editorials, TNT added a "***WUT***" section at the end of the page for strange questions and non-sequiturs. It eventually got so popular that some people started sending in ridiculous questions just so they could get into the "***WUT***" section.
    [username removed]: Does Sophie the Swamp Witch have solar panels on her swamp house?
    [username removed]: If you take a seed from a Woodland Xweetok and plant it, what will happen? Will it grow into a Xweetok tree? Or will it just be normal?
    marzipan: Hey man, I totally sympathise with the toaster thing. All through school and university, there'd be someone who toasted bread twice because it wasn't toasted enough the first time since the burniness button on the toaster lied (it made 2-burniness toast when it was set to 3-burniness toast), and then there was smoke, and then there were some panicked firemen, and then everyone who ran the school was angry. I totes feel ya.
    [username removed]: Can Neopets and faeries marry each other and have baby faerie / Neopet hybrid children?
    [username removed]: Hey you! TNT!!! Listen up!!! I know what Neopia needs!!! I have foreseen it!!!!!! Okay?!? Are you ready for this??? Please bring us a Dramatic Banjo!!! It's really important!!! Got that?!? All right!!! You may go!
    The same person as above, the following week: I regretted that message five seconds after sending it. At least you removed my username. I'm going to go and cry in the corner now. Bye bye.
    [username removed]: Do Faerie Farts? and if so are they magical and have elemental pow to them? Should Balthazar Bottle those too? and Faeries do Fart do the ones bottled by Blathazar only bless the pets who releases them cause they can't take more of their smell?
  • From Neopets: The Darkest Faerie, Lady Caitriona's and Lord Edric's relationship.
    Lord Edric: Last winter, that 'lady' called me a knight — a knight! And I, of royal blood! I didn't hesitate and returned the insult. She turned blue when I asked her to fetch my slippers!
    • The maid's exhausted reaction to them can also be quite comical.
    • If you speak to them before leaving for the Illusen's Glade quest, you'll find that they've fallen in love! Seeing their animosity turn to Tastes Like Diabetes is hilarious, especially with the cheesy poems that Edric keeps sending to her. The maid is even MORE frustrated and she begs you not to make her recite another poem.
  • TNT addressing the Socially Awkward Meepit, Put Something in McGill's Hand and Pointing Zafara memes in one picture. Meme? What's a meme?
  • A bit of Black Comedy: Desert Petpet Paint Brush + Abominable Snowball = ...well, see for yourself.note 
  • Editorial #348, question #5:
    nucky_girl: Dear editor, where would you find a low-priced paint brush (say, less than or at 1,000 NP)?
    Editor: Your dreams.
  • Upon the release of the Transparent Peophin, everyone hated it. So many people hated on it on the neoboards that TNT changed its design. The fact that there was so much complaining that TNT had to fix it is quite hilarious.
  • Depending on what you consider funny, the great "Neopocalypse" of June 2015 could count. In a nutshell, technical difficulties left the Neoboards with no mods and no filter system. The internet soon caught on and the site quickly devolved into utter chaos, filling up with everything from requests for sexual favors to the entire script of the Bee Movie. Users who hadn't touched the site in years returned to join in and the whole thing carried on for well over a day before mods stepped in to put a stop to it. The site's classiest moment? Not by a long shot. Wildly inappropriate? Without a doubt. Hilarious? Oh yeah.
  • In Editorial #448, a user asked if the Neopian Bank would ever switch to compounding Neopoints continuously using the formula (A=Pe^(rt)). TNT's response was "(N=Op^(e))".
  • Sometimes, if you score a goal in Yooyuball, the judges will celebrate for a moment, then stop and look awkward.
  • In this editorial, we have this question.
    _totchi: Okay, so my account got wrongly iced, but I got it returned. Hunky-dorey! :) Except...well, I had 5.2 million NP and, when I got my account back, that was all gone. Instead, I had 52 piles of dung in my Safety Deposit Box. I'm not moaning; I know you can't give NP back, that, kinda, what you guys do? xD Give 1 pile of dung for every 100k (I think it's 100k *bad at maths*)? I'm just a wee bit...confused. It does seem a bit unfair that my Neopoints are gone when I didn't actually do anything, though; especially since I don't think anyone got into my account, or else my Neopets, stocks, and items would've been gone, so...*points finger accusingly* DID YOU DUNG ME?! xDDD
    Editor: Actually your account was iced because it was compromised. If an account is scammed, we freeze it in order to protect it, though sometimes we can't freeze it in time to stop the scammer from stealing your Neopoints/items/etc. :( Also, not all scammers take everything out of an account, or else we may have frozen it before they took everything. In any case, the dung is left over from stealing your NP. Don't worry, though; we tracked down the thief and froze all their accounts. Hopefully this clarifies things for you and others with similar stories. We assure you, we have better things to do than stick 52 piles of dung in accounts, amusing as the thought might sound to us sometimes. ;)
  • The giant squids in Neopia. There's the Tiny Giant Squid (a petpet), whose description is "The best companion you could think of during the summer months", the small giant squid whose description reads "How can a giant squid be small?", the large giant squid whose description reads "Now, that's more like it", the giant giant squid whose description reads "Okay, now that's just silly", and the (really huge) Tyrannical Giant Squid whose description just says "".
  • The description for the Disappearing Plate of Cookies is "Okay, so the cookies get eaten, but where does the plate go?"
  • Around the time that the first Altador Cup came out, someone in Editorial #244 asked "You said that something big was going to happen in June. It's the middle of June already! Where's our big surprise?"
  • One user, during the Faeries' Ruin plot, noticed a glitch where Faeries would give out quests despite being turned into stone. TNT replied that they shouldn't be able to do that and promised to "remind" them.
  • This editorial has a user wondering why so many user lookups were blocked for profanity. TNT verified that it was a coding error, and not the result of "countless Neopians developing a pottymouth".
  • While the site help section is out of commission as of this writing, one of the FAQ questions that was Getting Crap Past the Radar.
    Question: Can Neopets breed?
    Answer: In your imagination, yes Neopets can breed.
  • One part of the Tale of Woe plot required players to painstakingly test every single grave in the Haunted Woods with magic in order to find the name of a certain Lupe. After one player found the correct grave, the next part of the comic revealed... that the tombstone had been smashed in half and was completely illegible. Players then had to work the name out via process of elimination, by documenting every single grave they'd already visited and comparing what was written on them with the Groundskeeper's notes.
  • The Kadoaties in the Kadoatery can be named things such as 1101011, 1337, Bagel, Curry, Fishsticks, Honey, Hotdog, Pizza, Ramen, Bender, Farnsworth, Zapp, Zoidberg, Binary, Book, BuyMe, Cash, Creature, Crybaby, Data, Q, Riker, Vash, Disgruntled, Draco, Emoticon, E = mc2, feedmelots, Fuzznugget, Givemecookies, Gozer, Slimer, Venkman, ZUUL, Happydaiz, Her Highness, Notameepit,Piddles, RightBehindYou!, ROFL, and Unknown Entity.
  • According to a question in Editorial #392, during one Random Contest to create a magazine cover, TNT listed the requirements as "Magazine Title (DURP!)", meaning that it was obvious that the magazine title would have to be on the cover. Unfortunately(?), many of the contestants misinterpreted the instructions and put as the titles of their magazine covers, "DURP!"

How well does it match the trope?
