* An old PaulBunyan tall tale has the logger stumble across a pair of mysterious whimpering shoes. Sometime after it whimpers, something incredibly strange happens, such as it raining upside-down. The other lumberjacks demand the Paul get rid of the shoe (sort of hard to blame them since stuff this [[WeirdnessMagnet weird]] only happened right after Paul found the shoe), but Paul, realizing the shoe's value, keeps them hidden away, only bringing them out when he was playing poker with lumberjacks who wouldn't recognize them.

* This happens to Dusk in the DCComics CrisisCrossover ''FinalNight''. She arrived on Earth and announced the Sun was going to get eaten. The Sun was then eaten. Obviously her fault.

* This set in motion the plot of ''Series/{{Psych}}''. Main character Shawn was trained to be hyper-observant by his father, in hopes that he would follow in his footsteps and become a police detective. Unfortunately, Shawn goes through a rebellious streak and instead takes on a plethora of odd jobs while occasionally using his skills to solve crimes based on mere minutes of news footage. The police refuse to believe Shawn could really be ''that'' good an amateur sleuth, and decide he was actually right all of those times because he's a criminal in the know. So Shawn claims that the truth is, he's psychic. The chief realizes he's a useful tool and cue plot...

As idiotic as this kind of reasoning sounds, it is possible to use it in such a way that's not completely stupid. TheUnintelligible may have shown up for the sole purpose of warning us about the catastrophe, but if we can't understand him, well, blaming him for the problem makes as much sense as anything else. Additionally, once Cassandra has been revealed as knowing something, the idea that she's an accomplice is plausible- although, since she's trying to warn you, treating her like a criminal is still pretty dumb. However, with certain subjects, or when the listener is in a certain frame of mind, their warning may be taken as a threat.

* The LooneyTunes short ''Scardey Cat'' sees Porky Pig moving in to an old house with Sylvester as his pet cat. Sylvester quickly finds out that the mice infesting the house are trying to kill them. He proceeds to spend the night alternately trying to warn Porky and trying to foil the murder attempts. Unfortunately foiling those wound up making it look like Sylvester was trying to kill him.

Added a good biblical example.
Added DiffLines:
[[AC:Religious Works]] * This can be found in the [[Literature/TheBible Book of Jeremiah]], making it OlderThanFeudalism. Jeremiah had spent the last years of the kingdom of Judah warning about the exile that the Judeans will go through if they continue worshiping pagan gods. Then the exile happens, and the people blame Jeremiah's crowd stopping the worship of the pagan gods as the reason for the exile! Jeremiah 44:17-18: -->'''Judean pagan worshippers in Pathros''': "On the contrary, we will do everything we have vowed - to make offerings to the Queen of Heaven and to pour libations to her, as we used to do, we and our fathers, our kings and our officials, in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem. For then we had plenty to eat, we were well off, and suffered no misfortune. But ever since we stopped making offerings to the Queen of Heaven and pouring libations to her, we have lacked everything, and we have been consumed by the sword and by famine!"
