** This tends to be a trend in certain Gene-centric episodes. They start off with him being incredibly enthusiastic about trying something new and then he completely and utterly bombs within five minutes. In one episode, when he's being entrusted with a flour sack baby, he not only drops the first one ''seconds'' after getting it, but he then dropped the replacement and the one he stole from another classmate. In the episode where he was on a Little League team, during his very first turn at bat he got so freaked out when someone pitched the ball he purposefully swung his bat three times in a row to strike himself out. The rest of the game went so badly the parents of his teammates consoled by their kids by flat out saying Gene's the reason they lost.

* During a tap contest in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', Butters loses one of his shoes onstage, unleashing DisasterDominoes that end up destroying the stage and killing over a dozen audience members, traumatizing him[[note]]As Stan later informs him, this was ''even worse'' than it seems because a woman killed was pregnant and two family members of victims committed suicide.[[/note]]. After getting over it and entering another contest, this becomes an epic win as the same thing happens, this time killing his opponents (and retraumatizing him).

** In "Homer to the Max," Homer and Marge are dragged along to a protest where they're chained to redwoods. After Homer declares this to be the worst party he's ever been to, Marge adds it's not as bad as Lenny's New Year's Eve party where he apparently didn't even have a clock for the occasion.

* In "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E15OhBrotherWhereArtThou Oh Brother Where Art Thou]]", Homer's up-until-then-long-lost brother Herb asks Homer to help his company design a car for the "average American man". Homer instead designs an '''$80,000''' HummerDinger that gets Herb laughed straight into bankruptcy. Herb didn't really made things easy on himself by 1) believing '''Homer''', with his immense stupidity, actually could represent an "average American" and 2) Herb decided not to listen when the rest of the research team tried to warn him.
