** The humor is subverted when they point out that the story may or may not be true, but making multiple notches on the side of a boat to correspond to visible landmarks is actually an excellent way to triangulate a position on the water.

* ''1636: The Viennese Waltz'' has several involving the hapless Archduke Leopold:
** The hilariously SubvertedTrope at the end of the picnic scene. The Barbies have been pairing off with various men, as per the frequent LoveAtFirstSight in the series. Leo has been attracted to Judy since meeting her, and tries to sweep her off her feet. [[spoiler:She doesn't take to being manhandled without permission and brings him down with a GroinAttack]].
** Later, while Leo is still sulking about this, his annoyed older brother Ferdinand literally tells him to go to his room(s).

* The story of Grantville's first Santa -- [[FourStarBadass Pappenheim]]. That is, the prematurely white-haired General Pappenheim, inadvertently shanghaied into playing Santa Claus for German orphans while trying to deliver a covert message to Julie Sims, who he thinks is a Jew named Lee Sims - "the Jew, Lee Sims."

* Admiral Simpson's unexpectedly vivid imagination.
-->He could remember entering a stockholders meeting once, followed by the top officers of his corporation, to give a very pessimistic report. Entering the room and seeing the angry and gloomy faces of the stockholders, he'd had to choke down a sudden impulse to turn around, draw his gold-plated pen, and order the vice-president in charge of marketing to commit seppuku with it on the spot.

* A bewildered Hans Richter regains consciousness in the hospital:
-->Hans' eyes ranged through the room. That, too, was odd. He would have thought a divine antechamber would have been better constructed. Or not constructed at all. Simply—''spoken'' into existence. But he could see the nail heads holding the wooden framework together. Very sloppy workmanship, actually.
-->His eyes studied the filmy substance separating him from the dimly sensed soul of another. The other soul, like his own, seemed to be lying on some sort of cot. Hans admired the filmy substance. Very ethereal, he thought. But he was a bit nonplussed by the cot. It did not seem at all heavenly.

** The progressively more ridiculous exploits of Jozef Wojtowicz, spy and spymaster for Stanislaw Koniecpolski, Grand Hetman of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, when his plan to quietly evade pursuit from his operation in Wismar goes pear-shaped, leaving him in Dresden right as Banér is approaching with his army to besiege the place. And, of course, right as the [=CoC=], particularly the Polish element thereof, is on high alert looking for spies. The end result:

** The progressively more ridiculous (and awesome) exploits of Jozef Wojtowicz, spy and spymaster on the United States of Europe for Stanislaw Koniecpolski, Grand Hetman of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, when his plan during the war between these countries that began in ''1635: The Eastern Front''. It starts with a quiet attempt to quietly evade pursuit from his capture after a completed operation in Wismar goes pear-shaped, leaving him Wismar, and ends in Dresden right as Banér is approaching Dresden, besieged by Banér, with his army to besiege the place. And, of course, right as the [=CoC=], particularly the Polish element thereof, is a [=CoC=] on high alert looking for spies. The end result:spies, and with Jozef, well...
