The one that always makes me chuckle is the slit wrist in Space Quest 3 (in the junk area)...
And I think also in Space Quest 3, the Alien who "impregnates" you...
Colonel's Bequest - the shower scene, that's just a nice classic reference...
Any death in Space Quest with the orat...
The S&M woman in Leisure Suit Larry 2...
The after sequence of dying in the alley in Leisure Suit Larry 1...
And there's much more.
Actually, Tawm, the alien "impregnates" you in SQ2. This happens in Sludge Vohaul's asteroid. Sludge doesn't exist in SQ3.
Speaking of LSL1 - if you wait until the sun rises up, and Larry is still a virgin. *snicker* Actually, LSL1 is generally more forgiving than other Sierra games, particularly LSL2 and LSL3 (which have many more ways to die). For instance: try to get the Big Gulp from the 7-11 knockoff (the Stop 'N Gulp?) and then walk out without paying. Or any of the ways you can die at sea... or trying to get the bikini bottom from the bottom of the pool, and then swim back up without drowning. Or, all the various ways that the KGB agents can nab Larry if he doesn't disguise himself properly as a woman.
(Having grown up in the 80s, I love the "evil KGB" humour. Can you tell?)
But my favourite LSL2 death is the James Bond moment - i.e. slicing Larry in two, beginning at the groin (ouch!!), and then throwing the bits into an acid bath.
Nasty, but evil. I love it.
Any deaths in SQ2 or SQ3 are quite gruesome, but my favourites are getting caught by the carnivorous plant in SQ2 (because it's so easy to do - and so gruesome!), or getting squashed by the "Tasmanian Devil" beast in SQ2, or getting waxed by the floor waxer in SQ2, or getting caught by Ah-nold in SQ3 (he'll be back), or landing on the hot planet without thermal underwear (SQ3).
But generally SQ2 and SQ3 are great for random, hilarious death. (Sorry Roger - I'm an evil bastard sometimes. Mwa ha ha.)
QfG1... the night gaunts get ya (but we warned ya!). Trying to pick a fight with Brauggi. Being rude to Baba Yaga. Being rude to the Baron. Being rude to Erasmus. Being rude to anyone more powerful than you. *snerk*
QfG2... doing the wrong things in Iblis's cave (like trying to get the treasure). Not being careful as a thief. Retiring to WIT and letting Shapeir take care of itself. Iblis gets released. Falling off the rope as a thief and becoming road pizza.
QfG3... not that many deaths, but many hilarious sights, like... the awful waffle walker. *snerk* We dig - earth pigs! Not a death, but too good to pass up.
Laurel and Hardy. As for deaths... hmm. I don't think I died in QfG3, ever (except in battles).
QfG4 is a very different proposition, obviously! Best of all is the banana slug.
But also Davy getting burned at the stake. Hugging the Rusalka (before helping her). Drowning in the swamp. Avoozl gets released. Getting zapped by Katrina or Ad Avis. etc.
QfG5... trying to swim without knowing how, or for too long. Cast levitate near the big windmill and levitate until it chops your head off. Die in Hades (possible, but rare if you use enough healing). Die at Minos's or at the Dragon's.
Can't think of any more. Hope these helps!

An interesting approach - but fatal!
Ha! Fatal indeed.
Another one is wearing your uniform into the shower (not fatal, but funny). Or getting the towel from your locker, and then walking out of the locker room.
