I'm going to include my funniest moment in all 4 of the games.

In the Sims 1, it would be when my sim died of guinea pig disease, and I had her husband plead with the Grim Reaper. She kept dying and dying and dying, I was laughing my @$$ off.

In the Sims 2, it would be when I called the fire department right when the fire went out, and they took my sims fridge because we didn't have enough simoleans to pay them, and we didn't have enough simoleans to pay for a new fridge, and all my sims were in crappy moods because they couldn't eat, and they all died of starvation. Hurray.

In the Sims 3, the game glitched and caused my sim to be stuck in the bedroom. He peed his pants and died of starvation three days later because I didn't want to cheat no matter what.

And in the Sims 4, when my sim just randomly died of laughter. I had just moved them in, but I didn't care that he died, it was still funny, I was be laughing to deathtor!

Funny moments in the Sims...where do I even start...

Well, when I was a kid, I used to make Sims and then set them on fire (these were the days of Sims 2) and it amused the crap out of me when ol' Grimmy showed up...(everyone's experimented with death at least once, and don't even deny it)

Of course, even when I left that phase, I tend to forget to install a fire alarm or phone when I do my initial Buy Mode rounds with a new household...and the idiots are very fond of setting themselves on fire without my help...and leaving baby twins orphaned, in one case. After the parents were ash, it was kind of surreal to watch the Social Worker come in and take the kids away...I mean, come on, do they have an aversion to ghost parents or something? And then Grimmy will come with his snide remarks about how the game is a life simulator, not a death simuator or whatever...that one amused me.

Then, there was Sims 3...I had a Green Thumb Witch I was playing around with, and one day, she goes to water her plants. Now, it had been a long time since I saw a giant asteroid fall from space, it's like one of those freak accidents that I started thinking, "Pssh, that not going to happen to me." Next thing I know, a lot of Sims are gathered around the garden, gasping and pointing at the sky, and I thought they were being retarded, so I ordered the Witch Sim to ignore them...and then, BOOM! Hours of work, gone, and the Grim Reaper shows up, and I'm just sitting in front of my computer, sputtering. I was pissed at the time, but it's funny to think back on, now.

And then I accidentally killed one of my Medieval Sims in the Pit of Judgement...I kept having Sims survive it, so I thought I could get some XP and what have you, but no. Grimmy comes to ruin my day. Again.

And then, Sims 4. None of my Sims have died yet (thank God), but, well...I created a household of roomies, and one of them was a virtuoso. So, in the initial levels of instrument-skill building, the women of the house would walk around complaining about the squeaky violin. I dunno why that amuses me, it just does.

Moral of the story? The Grim Reaper will come and screw your Sims day right up. Also, If you're going to learn strings instruments, do it *quietly*.

Ah, the memories.
