What is the most humourous thing you did this week...

...excluding explicitly humourous things like joke telling, comedy script writing, etc?

I've been using the username 'poon' when I log on to ninjam for listening purposes.  I think that's a great name that brings real excitement to the jam environment.

I created a heavyweight boxer in Fight Night 4 named Phil Collins, who is significantly more massive than his real-life counterpart, and can take quite a licking. He can't punch for shit, though. So its comedy to beat the crap out of him with Mike Tyson. I like busting up Phil's face with cuts and massive swelling, its empowering.

I've got nothing. This week has been starkly unfunny.

Regarding fighter Phil, it's a shame that developers don't make hot content packs which allow you to import different celebs into various games. I suppose they'd have problems with likeness rights. Oh well.

Then again... maybe it's the act of trying to reproduce people in the character creator which accounts for 95% of the fun. I used to love the old NBA 2K games, which had very loose limits on all the parameters, so you could create some real mutants with extremely unnatural features. I made a whole team of mongoloids, with the likes of:

Harry Majestic (huge calves and small everywhere else, black man with blonde hair)

The Elephant Man (totally out of proportion in every way, but with a mean 3-point shot)

Wang Sizemoguchi (super-tall Asian as skinny as a preying mantis)

Mr. Mutant (I only remember the name, but I'm sure he was ugly)

...and a few others.
