* ''{{Garfield}}'' might actually be [[http://www.boingboing.net/2006/08/05/death-of-garfield.html starving to death]] [[http://www.gocomics.com/mobile/garfield/1989/10/23/ in an abandoned house]].
** [[FridgeLogic If you think about it]], the house Garfield is trapped in has been abandoned for years, which suggests that Garfield is ALREADY DEAD and his spirit is bound to the place, a strong sense of denial is the only reason [[AndIMustScream he doesn't scream]].
--> "You have no idea how alone you are, Garfield"
* ''TheFarSide'' - One strip features anthropomorphic ketchup bottles are at the movie theatre. The gag is that they're watching a horror film, in which an on-screen ketchup bottle is broken and oozing in the street. A father bottle tells his son, reassuringly, that "that's not real ketchup" in the film. Of course, in real life ketchup can be used as fake blood, hence the joke. This stops being funny, even by Gary Larson's morbid standards, when you think about it for awhile and wonder what they're using INSTEAD of ketchup.
** Wait, [[CompletelyMissingThePoint what's so morbid about strawberry jam?]]
*** Stage blood. Nobody uses ketchup in film or theatre.
* ''ForBetterOrForWorse'': After Howard [[AttemptedRape went after Elizabeth]], they decide to simply fire and send him away instead of pressing charges for the assault. Elizabeth is actively coached to ''not'' report what happened. Later on, she's called in to testify during his trial for another crime. Who's pressing the charges -- and '''when''' he committed the crime he's being charged for now -- is never discussed. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Just where did he go after Anthony, Liz and the others let him go]]... and what did he ''DO'' afterwards?
* ''CalvinAndHobbes'': A strip has Calvin's mother ask what happened to a kid that mocked Calvin for bringing a stuffed tiger to school. His response: "Hobbes ate him". Calvin - of course - believes Hobbes did, and the fact seems to be no one mocks Calvin about that. Assuming Calvin isn't just making that up, that leaves us with two options: If Hobbes "is" real, that means he ate a kid. If Hobbes "isn't" real, that means Calvin might have done something really gory to said kid.

* In a strip of ''{{Peanuts}}'', Linus explains to Charlie Brown that he makes sand castles to cheer himself up. Behind him are a dozen or so sand castles, about which he says "I've been feeling pretty depressed lately." Is this a cute joke about a little kid accidentally misusing the term, or Linus's attempt to hide a terrible secret?

*** "You have no idea how alone you are, Garfield"
** Dude, that was scary enough to be a creepypasta. The only reason I know it was real is I read it on the Garfield website.

* CalvinAndHobbes has [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in-universe examples in the form of some of Calvin's more morbid snow art.
** Also in Calvin and Hobbes, whenever Calvin has a fight with Hobbes Calvin gets beat up pretty badly. Now, knowing that Hobbes isn't real, does that mean Calvin is beating ''himself'' up?
*** Except we don't know for sure that Hobbes isn't real, as the [[WordOfGod author]] has stated before that the comic presents two different versions of reality.
---> '''Suzie:''' I don't know what's weirder: That you're fighting a stuffed animal or that you appear to be losing.
*** Not to mention Hobbes has done some stuff to Calvin that would be blatantly ''impossible'' for Calvin to do to himself, like tying him to a chair so tightly (and with so many rope loops) that he can't move.
