I just got this:

Must be one fat ranger.

Urist McMiner cancels attend party:  Floor Space not available.

I'm still trying to figure out how that one happened.  I think that because he was a miner, he was digging channels, and happened to block his own path back to the meeting hall for a second.  I'm pretty sure that in the hall itself there is plenty of floor space for dancing.

"The Elf Hunter Aye RandomTreeHugger has arrived!"

My first thought: "Is that anything like a vampire hunter?"  I was so hoping she was going to go after the Elf infestation in my Trade Depot, like some sort of "Aye, The Elf Slayer" type, tossing wooden stakes into their hearts and whatnot.  Instead she went to see my mayor....  Such a disappointment.

Aye: "ARE YOU AN ELF?"
Urist McMayor: "Ach, dinnae insult me, ye daft woman! Be it not clear that I be a proud dwarf? Perhaps ye cannae see from ye'r grossly excessive height, eh?"
Aye: "I AM AYE, THE ELF HUNTER. I HAVE COME TO SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT THOSE WHO OCCUPY YOUR TRADE DEPOT."
Urist McMayor: "Well tha's good news then! I've been tryin' to figger out how t' get rid o' the pests, but-"
Aye: "THEY CARRY AN ABUNDANCE OF CLOTH. PERHAPS YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO GIVE THEM VALUABLE ARMOR FOR IT."
Urist McMayor: "Wait, what?"
Aye: "AND STOP CUTTING DOWN THE POOR TREES!"

I was like "OH CRAP! ITS A FARMER DWARF TITAN! HE IS GOING TO HOE US TO DEATH! I MUST BEWARE HIS DEADLY CABBAGE!" Then he wandered around not doing anything for a while, and eventually just casually walked away.

Can't you also damn rivers by causing a wall to drop into the water via cave-in?
I figured you could always damn a river by channeling out it out all the way into Hell.

I love dwarves who stop partying to go get a drink. That's some badass party-dwarf there.

I've also seen a "cancels rest: too injured" once or twice. If you can't even pass out, you're in pretty bad shape.

and all the demons in the outer dark look on amazed and recognize

This:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I constructed a (water) pool building over a volcano to create obsidian on the surface of the volcano.  When I set the zone for it as a pond to fill with buckets, I must have also accidently marked it as a fishing hole, and unbeknownst to me the dwarves were trying to fish from it.  Before I figured this out, I wtf'ed for a moment when I saw the message:

"There is nothing to catch in the volcano."

The Steelhead Battalion will be quite dissapointed to hear that they can't catch any Three-mawed Magma Mackerals...

"The pig tail fiber cloth tunic has lodged firmly in the wound."  Apparently a forest Titan ripped the shirt off the back of my woodcutter dwarf and proceeded to beat 3 dwarves to death with.

Urist McMiner cancels attend party:  Floor Space not available.

That happens when the room is full of people and their pets. Happens often for me, especially at my well meeting halls that are only 7x7 or 9x9 in size. Guess I need to make them bigger...
