Feel free to come up with your own alt-scripts for these particular moments. I didn't think they'd stretch out to individual gags across four full pages. Still, what I find interesting here is not the cartoonish antics in each beat (those are pretty normal for both cartoons and campaigns), but rather the back-to-back nature of them.

You've shared stories of an absurd nature before. But are there stories about absurd sequences, where there are multiple ridiculous events in a row? I'm sure there are.

Jokingly asked for a new party, my allies disappeared and were replaced by my rivals.

Survived just long enough to chuck that thing into the ocean.

Wished for my party to survive the Return to the Tomb of Horrors story.
Transformed into a Balor, leaving me too large to get through the door with room containing a sphere of Annihilation.

Then later opened a door that dealt damage equal to the character's MR rating in percentage.

Later, as biggest threat, other Balor saw me as biggest threat, so came at me with his vorpal sword. Nat 20 on the first attack.

"I want to be King" Poof. Luis XVI, guillotine.

Also, example from one campaign: Our technomancer: "I want to have the McGuffin in my hands right now"
He got it. By getting transported to place villians hideout where it was being stored.

Genie came out smiling, like some Eastern tramp. He said: hey boy what's happening? What is going on? You can have three wishes, If you don't take too long.

I said well...

I wish they all were happy on the Lebanon. Wish somebody'd help me write this song. I wish when I was young, my old man had not been gone.

Genie said: Consider it done.

There's something in the air, and you don't know what it is. You see someone through a window who you've just learned to miss, and the road leads on to glory but you've used up your last wish.

Your last wish.

And you want her to come home.

Genie said: I'm sorry, but that's the way it goes. Where the hell's lamp, sucker, it's time for me to go.

Bye.
