Here are some of the weirder ones I've heard in Aikido:
Seriously what's Achoo have to do with anything?
Nobody does the kiyah like this man.
Teach me so I can become like him.
Look how effortlessly he beats tens of pesky Judokas.

Okay,playing along now,valueable lessons i walked away with from my time in the chun:
-Putting up with an asshole will cultivate your patience,putting up with an asshole when you can\should leave,is cultivating your wisdom.(as in,you should know better and walk away.)
-keep the fact that you train in anything to yourself as much as possible,and what you trained in, unless circumstances dictate otherwise. saves you headaches and it might even provide some humorous moments,like Vieux Normand said.
-Developing a healthy fear and respect for weapons,and what they can do. I always liked weapons,but i never had the true understanding of how fast and how bad things could happen until Escrima. You will not have a realistic understanding of how weapons work until you train a weapon based art.
-The people ranting the loudest about life lessons and values are likely the least qualified to be lecturing others on it.
-A human beings capacity for self-delusion is nigh inexaustible.

Breakfalls are easily the most valuable thing I learned on a practical level. Learned them my first week of judo when I was a kid and still use them today. As for values, morals, etc., I feel like I learned a lot. But it's hard to sum it up in a forum post. I'd just say that learning stuff that can actually hurt people kind of forced me to think a lot about right and wrong.

Where (according to tradition) on the body are the worst places to get kicked or punched, such as in the perineal/pudenal nerve.
It may not teh d34dly, but that stuff is hell on Earth. I'll take being KTFO to pissing blood for weeks.
