* Jeffrey Ross gives a few awesome examples when telling a story about his great aunt (affectionately nicknamed [[PunnyName "Aunt Tique"]]), who passed away at the ripe old age of 104. When he called a cousin to break the news, he got the question "How did she die?!"
-->'''Ross:''' "Uhhhh, her ''chute didn't open!'' She was trampled as [=OzzFest!=] Her Harley flipped over on the Jersey Turnpike... She scored some bad crack; we found her in Newark... She died in childbirth... ''*to the audience*'' You wanna know how she died, for real? She turned 104, whole family got together, we took a vote... and we shot her."

** In "French Rarebit", when Francois, a French chef, prepares to cook Bugs for dinner, Bugs uses this trope to save his skin:
--->'''Bugs''': Of course, if you want something really good, you can't beat a good ol' Louisiana Back Bay Bayou Bunny Bordelaise. Ala Antoine.\\
'''Francois''': Antoine? You mean ''ze'' Antoine of New Orleans?\\
'''Bugs''': I don't mean the Antoine of Flatbush!

** Subverted on one occasion, however. The American military is planning a military intervention in Kazakhstan in order to try and prevent a major war breaking out between Russia and China over oil supplies. The President's military advisors are briefing him on the military strategies and hi-tech military equipment that will be used when President Bartlet asks a seemingly irrelevant question about what coats they'll wear. Everyone looks a bit incredulous and the Secretary of Defense [[{{Jerkass}} responds with a couple of condescending remarks]] in typical fashion of this trope... until Bartlet points out that they'll be invading in the middle of November, it starts snowing in Kazakhstan in August and doesn't stop until June, and the American military hasn't fought in a cold environment in a long while, making it actually a pretty good question. And his tone makes it clear that he doesn't appreciate the Secretary's snideness. Since it's pretty clear that they hadn't actually considered this, the Secretary and the rest look a bit humbled.

** Subverted on one occasion, however. The American when the administration is preparing for military is planning a military intervention action in Kazakhstan in order to try and prevent Kazahkstan. During a major war breaking out between Russia and China over oil supplies. The President's military advisors are briefing him on discussion of logistics, the military strategies and hi-tech military equipment that will be used when President Bartlet asks a seemingly irrelevant question about what coats they'll wear. "what will they wear?" Everyone looks a bit incredulous and the Secretary of Defense [[{{Jerkass}} responds with a couple of condescending remarks]] in typical fashion of this trope... until replies "I think green and brown are still the favorites." Bartlet then points out that they'll be invading a brutally cold country in the middle of November, it starts snowing in Kazakhstan in August and doesn't stop until June, and the American military hasn't fought in a cold environment in a long while, making it actually a pretty good question. And his tone makes it clear that he doesn't appreciate the Secretary's snideness. Since so it's valid to ask how prepared they are for the weather. It's pretty clear that they the commanders hadn't actually really considered this, the Secretary and the rest look a bit humbled.this.

* ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''[='=]s Rhinox in [[Recap/BeastWarsS2E9CodeOfHero "Code of Hero"]] asked Optimus Primal if he recalls the explosion in [[Recap/BeastWarsS1E26OtherVoicesPart2 the first season's finale]]. Considering Optimus was [[DeathIsCheap temporarily killed by it]] and Rhinox was the one [[Recap/BeastWarsS2E3ComingOfTheFuzorsPart2 to resurrect him]], this earned Rhinox a well-deserved DeathGlare as a reply.

* While the exact answer isn't give, when John in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10271976/10/A-DIC-less-SI A DIC-less SI]]'' asks his magic map (which provides directions to answers for any questions you ask it) how to get [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei]] pregnant, it apparently tells him to have sex with her. When he clarifies he wants to know how to help Shinji get Rei pregnant, the map tells him to jiggle Shinji's balls while he has sex with Rei.
