Microsoft Sam Reads Funny Windows Errors is a series by YouTuber Thunderbirds101. The series is Exactly What It Says on the Tin; Microsoft Sam reading humorous Windows errors. There are many sub-series (the most notable is Reads Stupid and Weird Signs, which is actually the series his first video is part of), but we'll refer to them all under this name.

Relevant tropes:

  • Big No: When something upsets Sam a lot, he does a rather humorous one: "NO-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O".
  • But Thou Must!: Many errors have desirable options greyed out, with only the undesirable options left.
  • Butt Monkey: All of the main Speakonia voices. Special mention goes to Radar Overseer Scotty, as well as Sam himself.
  • Cartoonland Time: Whenever there is a time skip in a video, the caption will usually display a ridiculously small amount of time, such as a few nanoseconds.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: Happened to a degree in the third and fourth seasons, with a greater emphasis being placed on story rather than just classic, random, goofy shenanigans while reading errors. Later inverted in Season 5, which featured a return to the original format.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Though Sam may not be necessarily evil, he certainly comes across as a bit of a Jerkass, but even he will help to fight against the various true villains of the series.
  • Follow the Leader: Likely inspired many duplicates.
  • Inherently Funny Words: "Taking a dump". Actually, there are a lot of them, like Tacos, Penguins, Diarrhea, and the infamous SWAAAAA.
  • Jerkass: Sam
  • Mind Screw: Some of the signs he reads in Reads Stupid And Weird Signs.
  • Motor Mouth: Sam does this a lot, like in the aforementioned Cluster F-Bomb. Also, in one Reads Stupid and Weird Signs special, he drinks an energy drink that makes him read the signs extremely fast (and too early).
  • Take That: Several to Windows Vista.
  • Toilet Humour: Sam often talks about "taking a dump" (often of the diarrhea variety), and his "diarrhea-infested toilet".
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Tacos.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Sam is drawn as a stick figure, when he sounds like a bulky guy.
  • We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties: When something goes wrong, there will be a cut to a test pattern superseded by a humorous message.
  • The Wiki Rule: Here.
