Wink Funniest Manics moments?

In my opinion, there are a lot, but what was the last time you laughed at something Manic? quote/line/appearance etc.

Reading '94 (i think?) during You Love Us when Nicky just stops playing and lobs his guitar into the amplifier.

The interviews for both the THB and EMG 10th Anniversary DVD's were quite amusing!

Vital '07. Nicky drunkenly singing during You Love Us.

Cracks me up every time.

Sean appearing at the Lipstick Traces signing, and the girls behind me shouting "aww he's so small and cute!". Poor Sean!

Other funny moments, James and Nicky signing my friends crutches in Glasgow, James calling me "Granty" (which i took as a sign of endearment), anddddd I dunno why, but i always like it when the crowd does the whole "There's only one nicky wire!" football chant, that's hilarious, and you can tell Nicky is pretty smug about it.

My gf's friend had quite a funny moment with the manics, she shared a lift with James in a hotel once. hmmmm funny or awkward?!

For me, it's the A Design for Life at the Millenium gig when James breaks a string and throws some dad-dancing shapes. They were fine throughout the gig, then millions of people tune in and everything goes tits up.

And of course Wire failing to smash that bass...

Haha yeah!

Nicky's bypass comment, after reading his reasoning for it, is even funnier. "I just thought, 'this is going to be hilarious!' and then just strolled up to the mic".

That Irish music awards performance of You Love Us in 1992. When James drags the amp across the stage and falls over in the process, with Nicky in the background shouting something that sounds like "blow, bloe, blow, blow, blow, blooooooowwwwww!"

For me, nothing will EVER top Crappergate. That was what turned me from a casual fan into an obsessed one. That rant was just. brilliant.

VICTORY IS MINE!! I found a video of this!
Not great quality (altho it does have an HQ button to hit) but it still brings the lols.

Haven't actually seen it but the thought of it makes me laugh - the time James told a cameraman to 'Get out of my fucking way!' at Slane Castle (I think it was! Correct me if I'm wrong!).
