Added DiffLines:

* Parodied ruthlessly in ''VideoGame/TheNeverhood.'' After draining the lake in the second section of the game, it's possible to go down into the empty canyon and see the drain itself. Huge signs are placed all around it: "WARNING! DO NOT JUMP INTO THE DRAIN! YOU WILL DIE!" Klaymen can [[TooDumbToLive choose to ignore the signs and leap right in]], and sure enough...

** Parodied in the animated series. Timon narrowly escapes a piranha infested lake and complains that there should be a sign. Pumbaa replies "Like this one?" and points out a plain looking sign next to them saying "Beware: Piranhas". Timon tries to save face by saying the sign should be bigger and Pumbaa points out an even ''bigger'' sign with spotlights and the same word written in lights.

* In the ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' special ''WesternAnimation/SnoopyComeHome'', Snoopy is continually frustrated by signs that prevent him from going where he wants and doing what he wants, either in general or because he is a dog. Snoopy was actually happy with the last one he saw because it was at the building his previous owner lived and he could it as an excuse not to return to her. (Not that he hated her, he just liked Charlie Brown better.)
