* Tien in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' encounters trouble with this trope when King Kai requires all potential students to tell him a joke. He ''did'' manage a joke. Once.

* Tien Tenshinhan in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' encounters trouble with this trope when King Kai Kaio requires all potential students to tell him a joke. He ''did'' manage a joke. Once. It wasn't funny, though. Kaio was scared by Tenshinhan's seriousness and determination, so he thought that laughing was the best solution.

->''Know the joke. Know it cold. Know it. Know it. Anyone who gets halfway through a joke and says, "And then, ah...let's see...I think he says something like..." should be stabbed with a dinner knife.''

* An episode of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has an example with Cassiel referencing a text as a joke "you breed with the mouth of a goat". This spawned the in-fandom meme "It's funnier in Enochian."
** Uriel is apparently the funniest angel in the garrison. Ask anyone.

* There have been a number of examples of guests like this over the long history of ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'', but special mention has to go to trade-unionist Derek Hatton, whose joke about a ministerial lovechild ''bombed'', and most of all Piers Morgan, who attempts to copy a joke from a previous week, tells it badly, and then '''attempts to bully the audience into laughing at it'''. It fails miserably, and best of all, Ian Hislop manages to tell the joke later, to much laughter. (Of course, when Hislop told it the audience were laughing purely to make Morgan's failure more personal).

* Setsuna in ''{{Negima}}!?''.
* The English dub of ''KeroroGunsou'' has Koyuki act like this in episode 18. She tells a condensed, G-rated version of TheAristocrats, apparently [[CompletelyMissingThePoint not knowing the point of the joke]] is to make it [[ShaggyDogStory as drawn-out]] [[RefugeInAudacity and vulgar]] as possible.

Added DiffLines:

** After being appointed interim principal of Springfield Elementary, Ned Flanders stated his policy to put the 'pal' back in 'principal', which everyone finds hilarious. Straight away, Chalmers adds that he'll put the 'super' back in 'superintendent', to which the room responds with silence.
--->'''Ned''': (continuing, on his lunch policy) Let me just say I want to put the "stew" back in "students". (everyone laughs)
--->'''Chalmers''': It's just a damn popularity contest with you kids! (walks offstage in a huff)
