* When reviewing "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by Music/TheProclaimers, WebOriginal/ToddInTheShadows was uncertain what the word "haver" meant, and threw out "babbling out nonsense words?" as a wild guess. Then the dictionary definition was displayed.

* In [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles The Incredibles]], Bob Parr, formerly the superhero Mr. Incredible, is hired to take out a robot called the Omnidroid whose advanced A.I. meant that it had (in Bob's words) "got smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders." [[spoiler: ''That'' Omnidroid was completely under the control of the villain Syndrome, and was part of his plan to create a situation for him to pretend to resolve. However, the Omnidroid in the plan got smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders -- or, more specifically be controlled by Syndrome's remote. The Omnidroid targeted the remote and took Syndrome out, resulting in Mr. Incredible having to do the job that he was fake-hired to do for real.]]

* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'' When attempting to bluff a demoness from hell, you spin a ridiculous story about how the Correspondence, which is the only spell magic in the Fallen London universe (and currently unusable because it always literally backfires) is in fact [[spoiler:the language of the gods, which is written on a giant beast that sleeps under the Bazaar - and in fact, IS the heart of the Bazaar]]. Congratulations, you just explained the nature of the game's DarkSecret in under a single paragraph! And now you have to go looking for it while the demoness you flat out lied to believes what is actually true.

* In ''Film/TheAdventuresOfBaronMunchausen'', the people of the Moon have detachable heads. While traveling with the Baron, the Queen of the Moon's head starts moaning and giggling because her body is keeping the amorous King company. The Baron explains to a little girl that "The King is tickling her feet" instead of the obvious-to-adults explanation. The film then shows two bodies moving on a bed, the covers slip, and... the King is ticking his wife's feet.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries:'' In "Mudd's Passion", [[ConMan Harry Mudd]] is found selling [[LovePotion "love crystals"]]. He's just running one of his scams, and is as surprised as anyone else (and dismayed that he'd been offering them so cheaply) when it turns out that they actually work.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'': In dialog with his friend Zoltan, Geralt can quip that [[TheHunter Witchers]] fish with bombs. Later in the game, you talk with a fellow Witcher, Lambert, who reveals that he does exactly that. There is no story significance to it, however.

** It happened again in "Live And Let Dine" where Mallory leaks information about a fake threat at a fancy restaurant hosting a meeting between U.S. and Albanian diplomats to get a reservation. Sure enough, the Albanian ambassador is poisoned. [[spoiler:Somewhat subverted when it's revealed that the thing was set up by Katya and Barry just to make ISIS look bad.]]

* A version shows up in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. CorruptCorporateExecutive Varrick puts out a ridiculously obvious and over the top set of propaganda films against [[TheEvilPrince the Northern Water Tribe Chieftain Unalaq]] designed to turn public support against him and towards [[LaResistance the rebels fighting against him]]. Varrick does this purely because Unalaq's edicts are bad for his own business, and his films transform TheFundamentalist, self-righteous, HolierThanThou Unalaq into an OmnicidalManiac MadScientist planning to use a DoomsdayDevice to destroy the world. This turns out to be ''far closer'' to Unalaq's [[TheAntichrist real personality and goals]] than either fans of the show or people in that world would have guessed when Varrick first started making these films, not that Varrick knew about that or would have cared.
