Our gaming group was very new to D&D, mostly first timers with just a couple veterans. We worked hard to get our team leveled up and figure out a good party balance. We were finally starting to get a feel for the game.
To keep the fights interesting our DM liked to throw a variety of unusual monsters at us. One such set was a pack of Living Vines. When the fight starting going badly, one of the newcomers turned to one of our veteran players, a Gnome Rogue, he doused him in oil, lit him on fire, and threw him at the Living Vines.
I don't know which was funnier, the surprising effectiveness of his action, or the outrage of the veteran player. Regardless it went down as one of the best events in our groups gaming lore.
