* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has an justification in terms of the main quest. As an outlander, the PlayerCharacter isn't going to be any more aware of the local Dunmer politics and religion than the player in the real world. Even the non-natives living in Morrowind can be ignorant of such things, since a common response to asking a non-Dunmer about the Nerevarine Prophecy is "some Dark Elf superstition." So as the character learns more about these things, so does the player. (This applies to a Dunmer player character as well, since they were born and raised outside of Morrowind).

** "As you know, most of our Battle Brothers...." He reminds his Space Marines of the reinforcements waiting in orbit to be used against enemy forces invading their stronghold. However, due to the weird timing and accent, [[{{Narm}} it ends up sounding hilarious]]. (see here: [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Indrick_Boreale http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Indrick_Boreale]])

** Lampshaded and Played for Laughs. As Rayleigh limited Luffy 's access to the outer world during his 2 years of training, Luffy (and, by extension, us) missed out on several major events in One Piece universe. Notable events are [[spoiler: the fall of every island of Whitebeard, the Battle between Akainu and Aokiji, Aokiji 's resignation and Akainu's promotion to Fleet Admiral, Sengoku and Garp's resignation, Law and Buggy as the new Shichibukai, the new danger to the Devil Fruit users, Blackbeard's usurping of Whitebeard's Yonko seat, his crew 's rise to power, the move of the Revolutionaries, and most notably HOW EXACTLY did Blackbeard usurped the above mentioned seat.]]

* Played with in ''Discworld/TheScienceOfDiscworld'', where Ponder, speaking to the senior wizards, precedes his [[MrExposition explanation]] of [[MagicAIsMagicA fundamental Discworld physics]] with "As I'm sure you know", but only out of politeness. A footnote explains that what he actually means is "I'm not sure you know this..."
* ''{{Discworld/Wintersmith}}'': Tiffany ends up having to do this to KnowNothingKnowItAll Anagramma, because just asking her to show you how to do something just results in a lot of stalling until she says she has a migraine.

** The episode "Coots and Ladders", has a FramingStory of Frasier describing his day to Niles, and Niles impatiently waiting for him to get to the point.

* Lampshaded in the pilot movie of ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand:'' one of Zurg's not-particularly-bright scientists is called on to tell Zurg how things are going. He then explains in some detail how they believe that [[spoiler:since the Unimind allows the [=LGMs=] to share a HiveMind, they should be able to alter it to give Zurg mental control over other people]]. Zurg replies "You're telling me my plan. I know what my plan is, I thought up the plan, [[OverlyLongGag it's MY plan]]. What I don't know is how close you are to [[ChewingTheScenery ACCOMPLISHING MY PLAN!"]]
