* The climax of ''Literature/TheSilverChair'' features a ShutUpHannibal about the value of faith. Even ''if'' [[CrystalDragonJesus Aslan]] and the surface world aren't objectively real, [[DeterminedDefeatist Puddleglum]] asserts, his belief is far more meaningful than the villain's bleak world. The speech still manages to be rather impressive; it helps that it's not too long-winded as far as Author Filibusters go.

* ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' has done this as much as ''Doonesbury'' in its long run, criticizing topics like South African Apartheid, politicians, music and religious controversies, the comic strip industry itself, and corporate America. (Indeed, Breathed was claimed the biggest reason for the relaunch of the strip was UsefulNotes/{{Donald Trump}}'s Presidency, as Trump had always been his favorite target.)

** In ''Literature/TheTommyknockers'', Gard goes on a lo-o-o-ong diatribe about the evils of nuclear power when he overhears a power company bigwig (or so Gard assumes) extolling the virtues of it and downplaying the Chernobyl disaster. Partially justified in that Gard is blitzed out of his skull and is also said to be obsessive about the subject.

* DanSchneider, the creator of ''Series/ICarly'': one episode of the show portrays {{Shipping}} and shippers in a bad light, then finally stops the show so Carly can tell them that the point of the show is comedy, not who is dating who.

* Parodied in the original novel of ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'', when author WilliamGoldman (in his guise as the alleged "editor") discusses how he cut out scores of pages of boring political lectures and discussions from the "[[LiteraryAgentHypothesis original book]]". A big part of the metaplot is that it's the fun, pulp fantasy-esque parts from a ''very'' long, ''terribly'' grownup novel that included a detailed description of the contents of Princess Buttercup's massive closet as a joke that only someone with a PHD in History would get.

* Mat Coward's ''Success... And How to Avoid It'' is a funny book about being a freelance writer, which periodically breaks off the jokes to talk about how MargaretThatcher was out to ruin Britain and referring to her time in office as the "Time of Evil".

* ToddInTheShadows' review of Chris Brown's 'Turn Up The Music' was about 30 seconds of actual review, and the rest a long rant about why Chris Brown and [[FanHater Team Breezy]] sucks.

* The five issues long series ''Comicbook/{{Warrior}}'', a licensed comic about every ProfessionalWrestling fan's favorite crackpot, The Wrestling/UltimateWarrior, is one great big WallOfText after another meant to elucidate the reader on Warrior's bizarre mystical-reactionary philosophy, and paint Warrior as {{Jesus}}. Between the sheer density of the text and the preponderance of made up words (just what in the blue hell is "Destrucity", anyway?)[[note]] The comic actually does provide a definition for the word, but somehow it causes the word to make ''even less'' sense than before.[[/note]], it confused its few readers so badly that both the third and the fourth issues had to open with an explanation of the previous issues (with the recap on the fourth issue being a footnote and unreadable due to being black text on black paper). The one issue this doesn't apply to? The Christmas special, a completely dialog-less issue in which Warrior goes to the North Pole, [[{{Squick}} puts Santa in bondage]], steals his clothes ''[[spoiler:and possibly rapes him]]''. There's a reason that every wrestling fan on the planet has agreed that the guy is nucking futs. It's bad enough to [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/bt/spoonyone/reviews/7238-warrior1 mess with the space-time continuum!]]
