1) Knut Anders Fostervold, Molde vs Stabaek (1999)

If not the worst dive of all time, it's certainly got a case to be the funniest (or at least the other players thought so, when John Carew recreated the moment after scoring later that season). A clear swing of the arm by Petur Marteinsson was all Fostervold needed. A brain fart delay of comic proportions later and the hapless defender, who later played for Grimsby and now competes for Norway in cycling, ends up a crumpled heap on the floor.
