Dungeons and Dragons - A bothersome character which annoys the real tanks, such as fighters and barbarians, and serves no real purpose, other than to look stupid and get smashed into the earth by a golem.

Bards are only good as diversions or dragon chow. They are almost always elves or half-elves which is not too surprising due to the fact that 99% of the players of D&D are elves or half-elves.
Fighter/Barbarian: "I saw a half-elf Bard once try to use Charm Monster on a Dragon. He's fertilizer now... I then slew the dragon in less than three rounds."
