With a photo of them dressed as [[Characters/SesameStreet Cookie Monster]]. Gotta pity the people who had to read the news on this [[{{Corpsing}} with a straight face]].

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1020 SCP-1020]], an indestructible, self-replenishing kit for making {{Cut And Paste Note}}s which periodically becomes animated and makes its ''own'' ransom notes. If the person the note is addressed to opens the envelope the victims named in the note will disappear into the thin air, and will then reappear out of thin air once the ransom demands are met. The ransom demands are often strange, and don't seem to to do anything to benefit the entity making the demands.

* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' has a single example in the episode "Beat With a Schtick". Bloo [[PoorCommunicationKills misunderstands something the newest resident says]] and concludes that he wants to beat him up. Consequently, Bloo tries everything he can to leave the house and takes it UpToEleven by settling for expulsion. He confesses everything he'd ever done including putting hot sauce into everyone's food and framing "Jolly Buttons". Mr Herriman is shocked by this and explains that they had Jolly deported. Bloo says "I know. He still sends me postcards" He then holds up a note composed with letters cut from a magazine. It reads [[ImpliedDeathThreat "I Will Get You."]]

We see her stitching it together on a sewing machine!
