* In ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', in a April Fools Day supplement called "The Scroll of Swallowed Darkness" that contains a story about a Solar who created an artifact so that she would be able to make love to a mountain. Not the god of the mountain, which would be perfectly normal for the setting, but the actual ''mountain''. [[spoiler:It erupted]].

* A bandleader for a traveling music troupe decides to hold auditions one day, and encounters a man who claims that he's found a perfect new member for his troupe. To the bandleader's surprise, the man pulls an ''octopus'' from his bag, and explains that the octopus is a musical genius who can flawlessly play any instrument. Hoping to test the octopus, the bandleader hands it a guitar and challenges it to play a song. Sure enough, the octopus picks up the guitar in its tentacles and begins strumming a pleasant tune. Still not convinced, the bandleader hands the octopus a saxophone and challenges it to play another song. Once again, the octopus shows off its incredible musical talent: it picks the saxophone up in its tentacles, raises it to its mouth, and begins playing freestyle smooth jazz. The bandleader is now sufficiently impressed, but as a final test, he decides to hand the octopus a bagpipe to see what it'll play. This time, the octopus picks up the bagpipe and begins frantically inserting its tentacles into every one of its holes, lovingly exploring its every crevice--but no sound comes out. After several minutes of silence, the puzzled bandleader finally asks, "Well, aren't you going to play it?" The octopus looks up and replies, "''Play'' it? I was trying to fuck it!"

*** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the Iron Bull notes that Bianca would never work as a {{Safe Word}} for Varric since a safe word has to be something you ''wouldn't'' normally yell during sex. The same game also reveals that [[spoiler:Bianca is named after his old girlfriend]], which just adds even more to it. And at one point when Varric asks The Iron Bull what the deal is with Qunari and their swords Bull points out that Varric named his [[HypocriticalHumor after a woman]], and Varric concedes the point.
