** 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.

** Jon and dating. To make a long story short, if Jon's latest paramour doesn't show up for him that's considered a GOOD date. (Eventually, though, he does end up in a loving, stable relationship with Liz.)
** 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, Jon and Garfield are understandably worried.

* ''Drabble'':
** 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.
** In 2016, Norman decided that Echo was the girl for him and he should finally stop pursuing Wendy. So, he sends Wendy a series of nasty breakup texts to finally let her know how he feels about the way she treats him. How is this an Epic Fail? He sends them to Echo by mistake. Worse yet, he mentions it to Wendy and she says he didn't need to break up with her because they were never actually dating. Fortunately, it appears his relationship with Echo will recover.

* When [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Calvin]] breaks his dad's binoculars, Hobbes asks, "Was the casing just chipped a little, or did the lens itself get cracked?" It turns out that, somehow, the binoculars have literally been ground into a fine powder. Even funnier, a couple strips later Calvin reveals he broke the binoculars when he was walking down the sidewalk and tossing them to himself.
