** His kite has also ended up down a sewer and in a mailbox slot. And of course, he tends to get tangled up in a tree ''with'' the kite a lot.
** The arc that marked Peppermint Patty's first appearance involved her trying to help his sandlot team by taking over as manager. Despite hitting five home runs and pitching a no-hit game, they lost thirty-seven to five via unearned runs, which is when she decided she could ''not'' help them [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere and left.]]

** Jon's mother gets into this with her HomemadeSweaterFromHell she sends Garfield every Christmas. They're usually gaudy, humiliating and/or something wrong with them, like a sweater without a hole for the head or a sweater with cow udders on them. The one time she makes a ''good'' sweater, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Jon and Garfield are understandably worried]].

** Another is a strip where Roger is golfing and hits his first shot. The shot ricochets off of trees, yard markers, bounces on a sidewalk, etc. until, defying the laws of physics, it inevitably ends up right back on the tee Roger hit it off of. He implies that this is actually a ROUTINE occurrence.

** Ralph once went on ''Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire''. The first question: "Humpty Dumpty sat on a what?" Ralph can't think of the answer, so he uses the lifeline to remove two of the answers. He's now left with "wall" and "whoopee cushion" which were the two he couldn't decide between before. He then decides to poll the audience. After the ''entire audience'' claims that it's "wall", he dismisses the poll because he thinks the audience looks like of stupid. He finally phones his son Patrick who starts to give him the answer only for time to run out. Ralph ends up walking away with nothing.

** Subverted in the numerous strips where Calvin attempts to learn how to ride a bike. Getting your face stuck in the chain ''sounds'' like quite the failure...if it wasn't for the fact that the bike is actually alive and attempting to kill Calvin. His parents don't believe him though.
