* The AnalogyBackfire when Teatime declares himself to be [[YourWorstNightmare a guard's worst nightmare]] is framed as a joke, but in hindsight it makes some sense for him to take Teatime literally: that's actually what the tower's defenses ''are''.

!!FridgeHorror
* So you know how The Little Match Girl was about a little girl who was forced into child labor by her abusive fathe and her happy ending was that she died and didn't have to sell matches n the freezing cold or get beating by her father anymore? Well now she's got a nice future full of more child abuse and labor to look forward too.

* The not-so-Good King Wencelas whom Death-as-Hogfather confronts is seen forcing a profoundly embarrassed and ashamed woodcutter to accept some Hogswatch charity in the form of the leftovers from his feast. In other words, by "giving" something in a way that causes such distress in the recepient, the king is committing [[Discworld/ReaperMan an anti-crime]].

There ''is'' a fairly well-known joke about a man walking into a bar with a crocodile under one arm, but considering how it's not a drink that's put in the reptile's mouth, it makes sense that it wouldn't want to go there voluntarily...
