Amusing Injuries are usually healed via NegativeContinuity. A common variety is ThePratfall. Can overlap with GroinAttack (possibly with InstantSoprano) and AssShove. Required for HyperspaceMallet and MegatonPunch. Extremely common in a PlankGag. CranialEruption is a subtrope. Compare with InconvenientItch. Contrast BloodyHilarious, for when serious injuries are PlayedForLaughs.

* 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.
