We've all heard them.

Sometimes we ourselves have said them.

Those remarks which their speakers believe show how clever, witty, well-read, erudite or otherwise better-than-others they demonstrably are, but in fact only reveal what we can all be when we puff ourselves up with hot air: Wastes of oxygen.

So, what's your "favorite", or more accurately, what's the single most obnoxious thing you've ever heard someone say during a game? It can be about themselves, other players, the game itself – especially an original design – the quality of the miniatures, even the venue; it just has to be spectacular in its revelation of the speaker as a Galactic-Grade "Dumas"...

Note: Talking about one's character or what one "did" in a game doesn't count, i.e. "Well, I sure surprised the GM when I pulled out my actual +5 Sword of Vorpal Rabbit Slaying! Eh-heh! Eh-heh! Eh-heh!"

However, an especially obnoxious GM would count, as in: "Yeah, you beat 'em. What do you do next?" or "Yes, that would work, if this was the kind of Orc you think it is, however..."

You get the idea.

And if it's something you said yourself once that you now regret, put it out there and say you're sorry. You never know who might be reading this...
