Funniest IC Moment You Have Ever Experienced

What is, hands down, the most hilarious, funny, laughable IC moment you have experienced in your time in this hobby?
Mine is from a Vampire game years ago. A Gangrel (with a mortal background of being from a tribe of Germanic warriors) brought a huge trebuchet that was hundreds of years old, but kept in good repair, to the Prince as a gift on his birthday (yes this particular Prince still felt the need to celebrate his birthday, and bringing him a good gift would get you on his good list at least for a short while). A super rich pompous Toreador brought the Prince a brand new limited run supercar in his favorite color.
The Prince enjoyed his new supercar, but thought the trebuchet was boorish and made comments as such.
The Gangrel went and got some heavy cable, and while the birthday party continued, hooked the supercar to the trebuchet and used it to launch the car into the river.
I laughed so hard in person from witnessing this that the other people in the scene had thought I had gone afk.
Any number of experiences with Abbas on the Reach turned into hilarity.
But Gunther on Arx (payed by Danny DeVito) takes the cake with going to the fights and just being the sweetest grandpa (Loving his Sally) ever while just absolutely bare-knuckle savaging anyone and everyone who wanted a taste.
A very, very well-written 'Kool Aid Man' moment from a Colossus on an X-Men game years ago. And Avalance's response of screaming shrilly before fainting. It's been like, two decades and I still crack up thinking about it.
While I keep up with MU friends and reminisce a lot, I actually have transitioned into GTA RP and I'd have to say I end up with a lot more LOL moments in that. Not all of them intentional, but the improv level is so high that it just begs for it (a highway officer getting marine training going "I'm in pursuit. Weather's wet, traffic's dolphin." is one example that had me cracking up and so upset I forgot to record).

Any story I could tell probably comes down to "you had to be there," but this hobby has been a consistent source of hilarity for me for decades.

During a dungeon crawl the DM described the hoard we had stumbled across with detailed descriptions of jeweled swords, crowns, coins, doomsday machines, and inexplicably a penguin.
At which point the Halfling rogue we had with us looked left, looked right, then picked up the penguin and ran off with it.
Then he cast animal awareness and it became Hubert the clove smoking penguin that wrote depressing poetry about being the only penguin that could talk.
It was great.

There was also:
Fighter1: Is anyone checking for traps?
Fighter2: I think the halfling can do something like that.
Fighter1: But is he doing it?!?!
Wizard: Just stay at the back if you're afraid of traps.
Rogue1: Yeah don't worry about it.
Fighter1: WHY IS NO ONE CHECKING FOR TRAPS?!
Fighter1 has left.
Rogue2: Hey I found a trap!

I don't know if this is the funniest all-time, but recently someone on Arx wrote their character out of a scene so that they could GM combat for the others. At the end of the scene they said "welp, I should damage myself too, because of the way I wrote myself out," and then misjudged how strong @harm was and accidentally killed their own character.
I had to get up from the computer because I was laughing so hard it hurt.
I really appreciate humor and comedy in my RP (intentional and otherwise), so there are tons of times I can remember laughing so hard I nearly cried at the keyboard.
One relatively recent one that comes to mind was a scene on a superhero game where a character lured the Justice League to Times Square with reports of a fake kidnapping and recorded them speaking, spliced it together, and then made a mash-up of their faces saying the lyrics one by one to "Never Gonna Give You Up" and played it over the jumbotron with the music in the background.
As realization dawned on just what was going on, the individual reactions of the characters were priceless. The players had some choice words once they realized they had been gotten. A good time was had by all.

A pc i had on a shadowrun game who was part of the Russian mob was part of a group that kidnapped an orc pc and then tortured him to get some info out of him. Iirc he was just slaying his rolls and icly we took a break and my pc dumped a bucket of soapy water on him to clean him up.
As his racial allergy (and he took it at the maximum level)...he was allergic to soap. We offered to retcon that but he thought it was absolutely hysterical and the best death ever. We never got the info but he did reroll a pc to join us.
And yes this was a noncon game like Jesus christ probably about 23 or 24 years ago lol
I ran a nonsensical in the hedge on DW2.0, where an insane hob was throwing lizards at people from a tower screaming "merry lizardmus".
I accidentally killed a PC with one of the lizards due to dice explosion.
Or, the time, on TR a pack of three werewolves were fighting some wasp spirits, and one of the PCs kept rolling so badly and the Wasps NPCs rolled so well that they knocked him out.
These were rank one spirits vs an overpowered Rahul.
Still, Lizardmus takes the cake.
Unless you count back in the days of yore, where on a dice less Anitaverse game, my PC vampire and her broodmate were arguing and started fighting...
And I went to write "Azura knees Lily in the stomach", but instead wrote "Azura kicks Lily in the snug."
And everyone just assumed I meant her cooch.

Some friends and I have the rule that if you come up with something both ICly appropriate and so funny you spend more than 5 seconds giggling at it in RL, you have to do it.
This has led to all sorts of hilarity, to the point where I've taken it with me to other places. It usually brings a whole new energy to the scene, and is the starting point for all sorts of inadvisable decisions, character growth, and connections.

Also the vampire prince failing a frenzy roll when someone pulled out a cell phone. In the middle of court. What happened after the scene itself was over was not super fun but that particular rp moment was pretty funny as people rightfully turned tail and gfto.
Many many years ago, a X-men RP.. my character got stabbed...
What was funny, is that it was actually posted as "In the GOOCH".
I don't think I could ever forget that. Or the guy from that RP who thought he was a medieval knight.
My fledgling Gangrel on The Reach asked @royal character (?George) for lessons in toughening up. So he slammed her face into the bartop hard enough to knock her out and buried her six feet under whilst unconcious. She woke up and used 'meld with earth' or whatever it is, I forget exactly, to work her way out of the grave. She was congratulating herself and getting herself together as she physically reformed only to find him stood there with a shovel still in hand. He swung it hard, yelled FORE!!!!!! and punted her out of sight. Still smile at that one.

@rowan This is how young Gangrel get their wings. That was a good'n.
A couple other high notes for me, personally were:
@Coin 's mage and mine having a not so low key Life Magic Prank Off against each other in a crowded scene. He won. By a couple pounds...
The Fall of Atlas Corp. On TR, our Cheiron Group cell of Hunters exiting the stage. One guy knife fighting a shark, my own fumbling a grenade... and when mine died, the deadman's switch goes off. Opening the cages of drug fueled chimps with surgically implanted explosives. I heard some wild scenes spawned off that. @EmmahSue gave us the best sendoff I've ever seen.

Recently? It would have to be RPing an angry indignant book that latched on to a Poor Helpless Person's face, flapping my pages aggressively and harmlessly against his cheeks, while his subordinates stood about, trying to be supportive.
That was fun.
Alternatively: Any scene where @Grayson has to ask me if we should engage the Rule of Funny.

On another game, I set myself on fire as a magic user character because I as a player did not read the description of the spell I was using, resulting in my death.
Before you say, "Oh but the GM should have let you redo it because you as the player didn't know the effect of the spell!", I will add that we decided to run with the character's death because I was RPing him as incredibly absent minded to begin with, and it would only make sense that he would forget how his own spells work and take himself out of the picture that way. In fact, we joked up to that point that any other death would be unworthy of his legendary airheadedness.
