Bugs can definitely be frustrating.  But Dragofer's comment about the AI dying as he tried to walk the plank got me thinking about funny bugs, and I just had one.

 

I placed a mine in a doorway because I thought an AI was coming in, but they turned around and didn't come any further.  "No problem" I thought, I'll just deactivate the mine and put it somewhere else. 

 

So I lockpicked the mine and deactivated it.  Then I frobbed it in an attempt to pick it up.  It made the sound like it was going into my inventory, but then I saw a dark shape swoop over my head.  I looked up, and a mine, spinning like a tasmanian pinwheel, landed on top of me.  I had just enough time to recognize what it was and attempt to grab it before it exploded and turned my head into a red mist.

 

What funny bugs have you experienced lately?

This was a while back, not recently.

I'm playing NAOG and I think I'm staying at the inn but sabotaging the place or something.
I end up alerting an old dude in green? somehow.
Cut to much later and I'm coming up from the basement and into the bar.
I head over to get out the door at the opposite end and there's this same old guy.
He's stuck diagonally in the doorway and sitting in the air like a goofball blocking me.
While I'm trying to jump over him out the door, he says something that I can't remember.
It's like "We'll trap this rogue yet". Of course, it would be funnier if I knew the line.
Nonetheless, it amused the hell out of me, because he did trap the rogue (me) without even knowing it by jamming up the door.
Plus, you know, he was just sitting in the air in the door with me trying to climb over his lap.

The best bug I remember is when a revenant fell through a hole while he was running to a lower level where the player was, which was full of water like the top of a flooded cave, and he clipped into the ceiling and kept running. Visually it looked like he was running hovering over the water, and still managed to run to me to my little island and bash me to death. I had to laugh and shake my head. I took a screenshot of it that's around here somewhere too.

Not so much as a bug but rather a funny coincidence. I knocked out a guard in my WIP and he landed like this, gave me a good chuckle seeing him stuck in in the exorcist pose  :laugh:

One time I was sparring on the training mission. One of the guards got all stretched out around the waste. Thing is though, he continued to fight me as though nothing was wrong. Never laughed so hard. Another favorite of mine is when you blackjack a sleeping AI and they partially clip into the bed. Then they start violently flopping around and usually die a minute or so later.

There was one AI in the early days that didn't have the AF file or something like that (the brute, the main bad guy in my FM), so when you KO'd him he'd start flipping in a kind of surreal slow motion spin hovering along the ground. I don't know if it's exactly the same effect, but similar anyway. It was the most amazing thing I'd seen, and I actually want to use the effect in an FM for a special kind of AI it was so cool. I'll have to see if it's possible to hack it in with a custom AI without the AF file.

I must one up Goldwell. This is actually the oldest screenshot I have in my folder, from 2015:

And for an actual bug, here's the second oldest screenshot I've kept, from 2016:

The rats were both alive, which made their jenga tower formation incredibly impressive, as they kept balance perfectly as they walked around.

While beta testing 2.05 2.02, I was playing your mission and in the console there was an error about a missing penis.

That got a good chuckle.

Good thing you linked that. A prior iteration of myself posted a screenshot or two a few years back of an interesting KO:
