* During the final months of his time as president of the United States, ''Website/TheOnion'' ran several news blurbs about George W. Bush suffering increasingly improbable injuries, such as having his eyelid nailed to a wall, being attacked by a crocodile, and being hit by a crashing plane. All ending with him recovering comfortably at Bethesda Naval Hospital.

* This trope is par for the course in many classic comic strips, which (being static and somewhat trite) would arguably be less funny for lack of them. You could probably make a DrinkingGame out of all the times [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Calvin opened the door and announced "I'M HO-OME!"]] only for Hobbes to tackle him and roll around with him in a BigBallOfViolence until Calvin was thoroughly bruised and [[ClothingDamage his clothes were partially shredded]]. Didn't happen so much in ''{{Peanuts}}'' (as Charles Schulz preferred to dish out ''psychological'' pain to his characters), but occasionally someone [[ButtMonkey (usually Linus)]] would get knocked on his ass by a punch and have cartoon "whirlies" orbiting around his head.

* TheSmiths' "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" describes the narrator suffering terrible injuries and getting sent to the hospital. [[BlackComedy Somehow it manages to be very funny anyway.]]

* ''Literature/NightmareHour'': How the clown and audience respond to Christopher in "Afraid of Clowns", as well as any other previous victims, thinking it is an act (the audience only) but all the while very droll, but of course, not to the victim, and of course, it is not just an act.

* During the TrainingMontage of "I'll Make a Man Out of You" in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', Yao gets his buttock pierced by a burning arrow, which is played for laughs. This is particularly notable since Mulan's stomach wound later is not only played for drama, but also a major plot point.
