Open Thread: So Wacky, It Just Might Work

The above image is a demotivator I made a few years back, based on an actual thing that actually happened in an actual D&D game, when our wizard actually summoned an actual Cthulhu-esque being, on the theory that it and the thing attacking us would focus on each other while we slipped out the back.

What still boggles my mind is that it worked.

Open thread!  What's the wackiest, zaniest, most one-in-a-million-chance you've seen actually work?  It could be in a movie or book - a scene that should have been ridiculous but was just too awesome to fail.  It could be in a roleplaying game or a story you've written - something where you or your friends had some influence on how the plan went down.  Or - best of all - something from real life, when sheer luck and chutzpah carried the day!  And if you don't have any, make one up!  Pretend it happened to your best friend's brother's cousin's roommate, we're not going to check up on it!

Monday Reminder!  While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those!  These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you!  (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!) 

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
