* In Seasons Of Mist, the emissary of order takes the form of a cardboard box (a sacred one, of course). In fact, the entire banquet and most of the subsequent negotiations. Partly because there are none more [[TheComicallySerious comically serious]] than the King of Dreams.

* Gaiman wasn't allowed to have a character discuss the act of masturbation, because, he was told, masturbation doesn't happen in the DC Universe. He replied that this explained quite a lot.

* In ''The Kindly Ones'', Rose has an EroticDream involving her and her ex-boyfriend, but halfway through finds Abel on top of the cupboard, peeping at them. Abel of all people voyeuring at erotic dreams and trying to stammer an explanation is funny in itself, but what really seals the deal is the ''popcorn'' he had.

-->"Many years ago, I convinced Thor of the Aesir that the reason for his impotence was that he was pregnant (he's not very bright). And I told him to lie face down and naked on his sleeping furs until I came and delivered him of child. I was disguised as a wandering physician. So I fed him a gallon of castor oil, painted his arse blue and shoved a cork in his bum-hole. I told him it was the cure for his condition. Then I went off to sleep with his wife. So Thor is lying face down with a cork up his fundament for a week and a day, while his insides continue to rumble their course. And now he's got a pain in his gut like you wouldn't believe, as the pressure continues to build. I'd told him he might experience some pain. That it was common in pregnancy. Suddenly, into the room, through an open window, bounds Ratatosk, the squirrel who lives in the branches of the world tree. Ratatosk is curious as any little squirrel. And he climbs on top of Thor's squirming, straining buttocks, and he--pulls ''out'' the cork. '''THRRRRRPPPPP!''' It's an explosion--eight days' worth of oiled shit thunders forth from the fundament of the Lord of Storms. And the mighty Thor sits up, and looks around, and sees Ratatosk on the ground, stunned, gassed, and befouled. And slowly, with hands as big as ham hocks, he picks up the little animal, and stares at it. And then, with one ponderous motion, he clasps it to his bosom. ''You're ugly'', he says, ''you're hairy, and you're covered in shit. But you're mine, and I love you!''"
