* In a country occupied by the British, some protestors are carrying a long banner which reads "We are fed up with Britain!". Coming to a street which is too narrow to fit the banner through, they tear it in half and divide into two groups. They are now carrying two banners: "We are fed" and "Up with Britain!"

* During the 1950s/60s, on weekdays, the BBC used to broadcast a midday show with a live audience. One of the regular guests was a stand-up comic called Ted Lune, who always finished his act by reading out a letter from his mother. The letter relied heavily on all different kinds of reading-out-loud tropes, and invariably finished with an inversion of this particular one; for example, "Mrs Jones next door has bought six pigs. She keeps them in the back yard and there's an awful smell from your loving mother." Media-switch version [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHHaOSzLiHU here]] (from the sitcom ''[[Main/ArmedFarces The Army Game]]'').

* A version of this trope caused confusion for ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' players with the card [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=35891 Book Burning]]. The first line reads "Unless a player has Book Burning", which could be a sentence in itself, leading some players to insert a nonexistent comma between that and the other half of the clause "deal 6 damage to him or her,". This made some people believe the card damaged a player ''and'' did the other clause (put the top 6 cards of their deck into their graveyard) unless they could produce a copy of Book Burning, instead of its actual effect of "milling" 6 unless someone takes 6 damage. The official wording changed quickly, but since that version of the card is the only one that was ever printed...
