Of amusing mediocrity and failure.  Because those can be just as entertaining as tales of triumphal daring exploits.  I'll start!

A friend of mine ran a pulp one-shot.  The premise was that all the PCs were members of a traveling air circus working in Central America.  We were forced down by sky pirates and subjected to the whims of a crew of bad guys who'd adopted an Incans Reborn sort of theme, wearing the costumes and working out of the local pyramid, you know the drill.

Anyway, there we were.  After suffering many depredation in Durance Vile, we were dragged in chains before their almighty chief.  The GM described him sitting resplendent in a feathered cloak, upon a throne of gold and jade.

My PC (the group's weisenheimer), couldn't let the moment pass.  I said something snide.

The GM put on a gloriously affronted face, drew himself up (he was a big guy) pointed at me and said...

"HUSH!


You...

fellows..." he trailed off pathetically.

After we stopped laughing, we retconned the moment so that he actually said, "Silence, Dog!" but his moment to be impressive was lost forever, and "Hush, you fellows" became our rallying cry for those unintentional moments of fail.
