* Multiple characters on ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', as the emphasis on humor eventually turned most of them into idiot jerkasses. This was particularly apparent with Dr. Rip Studwell, a charming but self-absorbed fairy doctor who would rather talk about the success of his golf swings rather than diagnosing his patients:
-->'''Dr. Rip:''' Cosmo, I've got good news and bad news. The good news is I'm doing a tee off at 2:30!
-->'''Wanda:''' Uh, hello? Bad news.
-->'''Dr. Rip:''' Oh, right. The part about you.\\
-or-
-->'''Dr. Rip:''' It's me, Dr. Rip Studwell, with bad news and good news. The bad news is if we don't perform the fagiggly transplant soon, it's going to be too late.
-->'''Timmy:''' What's the good news?
-->'''Dr. Rip:''' I'm three under par after nine holes! See, at least ''one'' of us is happy!

* After the unfortunate switching of two crates is discovered in ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent''. Bad news, the expedition ran out of food much earlier than planned. Good news: they aren't running out of candles anytime soon.

Maybe the messenger was just fulfilling his role as the comic relief, maybe he's a {{Jerkass}} with a really mean-spirited sense of humor, maybe he's [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered]] and can't comprehend that others might not regard the irrelevant news as good, or maybe he's TheDitz and was thoroughly convinced that his piece of good news was every bit well placed. Whatever the case, the receiver is usually anything but amused.

[[folder: Film ]]
* In the movie ''Film/TwentyOne'', a friend of the main character declares "[[ShoutOut I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance]]," but does not mention GEICO.
* Creator/{{Seltzer and Friedberg}}'s ''Epic Movie'' does this too, in a GagSub, but without the setup. [[FleetingDemographicRule Although given their modus operandi, we shouldn't be surprised.]]
