They are actually missing one of my favorite funny parts from Single White Vampire. When Kate first arrives at Lucern's house and he is trying so hard to just get one bag of blood, one glass of it and she keeps interrupting and making him waste it. First she startles him in the kitchen when he is bent over inside the refrigerator and he bumps his head and the bag rips and the blood goes everywhere and Kate thinks it's from his head...LOL Then later he begins to pour it into a glass and and she comes in unexpectedly again and he drops the glass and breaks it in the sink and he just knows the bag is emptying into the drain while Kate is talking and all he hears is "blah, blah, shopping, blah, blah...because that was his last bag of blood. He manages to get exactly three drops of blood out of the bag after she leaves the room and then digustedly realizes he has agreed to go shopping! I can only imagine the look on our favorite hermit's face at that realization. ROTFLMAO!

Also, what about in A Quick Bite when Lissianna is trying to feed on the guy in the women's restroom and Greg's mother keeps asking her questions from the next stall so she keeps having to stop so she can answer!

Another one is when Lucian finally gets a glimpse of himself in the mirror at Marguerite's house and realizes that he is "bare-chested, wearing a flowered apron, rubber gloves, a bandanna over his hair and another over his lower face..." He was dressed like that the entire time he was trying to explain to Leigh that she was an immortal LOL. It's funny to reread their first real meeting (in the bedroom) keeping that knowledge in mind. You tend to concentrate on the dialog between them and forget just how ridiculously he is dressed the first time you read it. *grin* And then after he realizes how he looks he resumes cleaning the kitchen and Julius almost knocks over the bucket of dirty water so he puts him out in back only to have Leigh come through the swinging door which hits him in the butt and makes him knock over the water!

Does anyone else have a favorite funny scene that wasn't mentioned? I could go on and on. LOL!

and there are some more i can think of, too.

The Accidental Vampire: when the iguana launched itself on victor.

A Quick Bite: when Thomas told Lissianna about Bastien's reaction when Thomas complimented the spiderman PJs "his most 'cool choice' of sleepwear"

hmm... that's all i can think of for now :D

Ok I finally cast my vote. I agree with Kim on missing that one with Lucern and Lucian. You noticed two of our most favorite immortals are always in flowered tea towels in their most embarrassing moments. :D

Wow that was hard but I finally voted. I agree that there are some missing all the ones Kimberley mentioned but Lynsay's books are full of Funny Scenes.

There were just too many from SWV...and there are just too many overall. It was way easier to pick fave hot scenes than fave funniest scenes. First, because there are so many funny scenes to choose from, and this is just in the first nine books, and two, I just have too many favorites. I finally just forced myself to pick, and I would still like to add many more! :)
