* ''VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoKajitsu'' established in a flashback that dead Yuuji's sense of humor absolutely could not tell a funny joke to save her life. Building on that in ''VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoRakuen'', we see more flashbacks with her and another attempt to tell a joke [[spoiler:during the afterstory when she's not only been discovered to be alive but also not just a computer (long story) and she still can't tell a joke. The entire time the main story was going on, she pretended to have an artificial arm that everyone was too polite to ask about and the she just pops it off like a glove in front of a side character because she'd figured it would be hilarious.]] Okay, the audience might find that hilarious, but there's nobody in the story who would actually laugh at that barring maybe Yuuji.

* People with autism are likely to find it hard to tell jokes in such a way that they are funny (or supposed to be) due to limited, if not absent, social skills.

* 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.

* 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).
