Well certainly there are funny instances anywhere. I find the Machine Cult's "Ritual of the Knock" (read: Hitting it really hard on the side) is hilarious. However, when it comes to intentionally written funny and it's the Orks for most people. Every place I've been pretty much agrees they're generally accepted to be the comic-relief faction. :\
Fair enough; the Orks are
the comedic relief species, and they're not the only species that can get a laugh now and then.
The Ritual of the Knock? Never heard of it before, but apparently I've been an avid practitioner for years. Does it have a mantra? So far, the one I've been using goes something like 'Why won't you gakking work, you gakking piece of scrap?!?'
Speaking of truncated curses, I've a question for the board. 40K brings its' players and readers into a brutal, graphically violent universe where on any given day, they might witness a hundred cultist's gut themselves for the Chaos Gods' pleasure, or see a Dark Eldar Haemonculus perform a vivisection on a conscious 'patient', or watch a world get torn apart from the inside out and detonate, not to mention that every day
, a thousand souls get sacrificed to the Emperor.
My question, then, is why can't anyone bring themselves to drop the F-bomb in the fiction? Is that the line in the bloody, body-strewn sand?
