25) While the BBEG is commencing with his monologue, "I shoot him with my Wand of Hold Person."

yes because a PC useing a legitimate technique to deal with a villain is such a terrible thing if it prevents you from your using your 5 page monolouge .

You want to monolouge, either keep the baddie in an area where there is no concievable way the PCs can get to him, find a way to incapacitate the PCs, or write a book.

48. "My INT is 6... again."
49. Why is it written IDIOT3 on my sheet? Oh, this is 1D10+3!

50. What do you mean, racial HD? In the book, the ogre is only +2 LA, not +6...

51. About my background, I was thinking my PC could be an orphan... Can he be the BBEG secret son?

53. ...character optimization forums...
54. Can I use this homebrew? Well, my other DM allowed it...

...In my first campaign... In my first town... In the first alley they went down...
15) "....kender...." (Note: context does not matter. That one word is enough)

I had a player with an amazign nack for turning tough encounters into easy battles which always began with him getting the enemies attention by yelling that.
59. "So, I'm going to play a Vow of Poverty half-drow/half-kender wizard/incantatrix/initiate of the sevenfold veil/dweomerkeeper. His personality is based on a mix of Chuck Norris and Mr T. His cohort is a swashbuckler/druid. And his cohort's animal companion is..."
19. "This quest sucks."
I don't use emoticons, and I'm also pretty pleasant. So if I say something that's rude or insulting, it's probably a joke.
20. "I cast..."

At least 70% of campaign derailing sentences start with these two words. :D
62: "I use detect evil on the baron."

21) Half-ogre fighter
22. "I convert from Kord to Pelor."
"You're converting in the middle of a fight with a balor?"
"Well, I convert to Obad-Hai. I see your overpowered sorcerer as a threat to the balance of nature."

Actually, I said that, back when I played a Fighter. :D
65. "I couldn't find the right rule, so I used the 3rd edition version."

66. "Hey! I can use my sword to cut a 100 foot deep trench! If I drop a baddie in, do they take falling damage?"
67. OOC you hand the DM a note while IC you're wizard is handing a message to someone the party just found out betrayed them. Said note and message says something to the effect of:

"Sir or Madam,

It has come to the attention of our party that you have been using us all along, and we have decided to resign from your service at this time. Now before you take any action, we requests that you pay us what is owed and give us a head start. Barring that, we requests that you at least give us the dignity of a quick death. This of course is dependent on the outcome of our current meeting because I prepared explosive runes today"
