The Stupidest D&D Monsters, Eveh

JohnW sends this list of D&D's Lamest Hits.

Feel the heroic fantasy.

Even if you don't care about D&D, there's some lame real-world myth at the end:

1,930 years ago (77 AD), some famous Roman by the name of Pliny the Elder included something known as the Bonnacon in his list of animals found in Ancient (but at the time Modern) Greece. What was the Bonnacon, you ask? Here's an illustration from the 15th century (taken from the Bestiarius-Bestiary of Anne Wahl):

The Bonnacon is a bull that fires explosive, burning poop from its rear end. According to Pliny, it could "release a trail of dung 3 furlongs in length". And while I hate to admit it, that's even more retarded than anything the Dungeons and Dragons folks have come up with in the past three decades.
