* A similar joke tells about a farmer with a talking pig which annoys him greatly and so he tries diverse methods of sending him away, but [[TheCatCameBack the pig always returns]] and complains about being abandoned "You're so mean. That was really far. Why don't you say you don't hate me already? You heartless monster". At the end the farmer puts the pig in a rocket and never sees him again.
** Then after a couple of jokes, the next one is about a concert expecting a big name singer. The public gets excited when a limo pulls up, but it turns out to be (insert another celebrity). Then a tour bus comes by, but it's another celebrity. Then an helicopter, same result. Then a UFO comes by... "You're so mean. That was really far. Why don't you say you don't hate me already? You heartless monster".

* One anonymous poster on 4chan replied to a post, stating that he "didn't have a slowpoke slow enough for this", and that he'd be back two years later. [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/686/066/0e7.jpg He was.]]

* On July 8, 1958, New York Yankees manager Casey Stengel gave testimony before the Senate Anti-Trust and Monopoly Subcommittee. During the mid-20th century, Stengel and Yogi Berra were both thought to be {{Baseball}}'s premiere {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s. However, with his [[InnerMonologue Stream Of Consciousness]] "Literature/{{Jabberwocky}}"-like [[http://www.baseball-almanac.com/quotes/casey_stengel_senate_testimony.shtml testimony]], Stengel revealed that he was really the BunnyEarsLawyer of baseball. And the brick joke? That would be Mickey Mantle's OneLiner at the very end.

* One very long variation of the brick joke goes like this- An airplane had 100 bricks in it. One brick falls out. How many are left? [[AntiHumor 99, of course.]] What are the three steps to put an elephant in the fridge? 1. Open the door. 2. Put the elephant in. 3. Close the door. What are the four steps to put a horse in the fridge? 1. Open the door. 2. Take the elephant out. 3. Put the horse in. 4. Close the door. It was a lioness' birthday party, and since she was a very social lion, she invited every animal in the world to come. Who didn't make it? Why, the horse. [[YouBastard It couldn't get out of the fridge with its hooves.]] A little old lady was walking through a swamp infested with crocodiles, and no one who went in there came back out uninjured before. However, the old lady made it through just fine. Why? Because the crocodiles were all at the party! Later, the little old lady was walking through a meadow in a park, but was rushed to the hospital just a few minutes later. Why was that? [[CallBack Because the brick fell on her!]]

* In the first scene of ''Theatre/BostonMarriage'', Anna's maid reports that the cook has quit, and also that she "said as how you could kiss her arse. Till... She said some holiday, but I've forgot it." In the final scene, the maid comes in with an apparently urgent announcement, only to be repeatedly shushed -- but when she does get to deliver it, it's only that she's finally remembered that the holiday in question was Michaelmas.

** Most of Usopp's lies and stories have become true at some point. Not all of them, and maybe not entirely, but they are somehow true.

** Most of Usopp's lies and stories have become true at some point. Not all of them, and maybe not entirely, but they are somehow true. A few specifics include:
*** Usopp discovered his genuine sniping skills when he nailed a faraway rock with a single cannon blast from the Going Merry. He claimed to have hit it on purpose, but later developed those skills for real.
*** He often claimed early one that he has 8000 followers at his command. Come the end of the Dressrosa arc, [[spoiler:several pirate crews and their captains have joined to form the Straw Hat Grand Fleet]].
*** He once said to Kaya he visited the country of the dwarves. One TimeSkip later, he does visit Green Bit, the country of the dwarves.
*** In the Thriller Bark arc, Usopp wakes Luffy, Zoro and Sanji up by claiming that a '''beautiful''' '''swordswoman''' has just brought '''meat'''. Come the Dressrosa arc, and Rebecca enters the picture, being a beautiful young swordswoman who befriended Luffy after giving him food.

Arguably, what is probably the longest brick joke in history occurs in the series finale of ''Series/{{Newhart}}'', where Bob is hit on the head, and wakes up in bed with his wife Emily ''from his previous series'' Series/TheBobNewhartShow as a parody of the "ItWasAllADream'' story line in the series ''Series/{{Dallas}}'', implying the series ''Newhart'' is a dream Bob has each night.
