** Another example is in ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'' where [[LeonardoDaVinci Leonard of Quirm]] very briefly mentions in the middle of a long rambling conversation full of useless information that [[spoiler: many years ago he did some sketches of an island that has supposedly only appeared recently]]. The person he's talking to doesn't realise the implications of this until he's left the room, at which point he quickly comes back to ask for clarification. Two things are notable about this example: 1. The person he's talking to is [[MagnificentBastard Lord Vetinari]], who is normally ''very'' quick to notice important details, making it particularly funny that he should be a victim of this trope, and 2. Unlike many uses of this trope, the relevant information actually ''is'' quite easy to miss if you're not paying attention, and the reader may end up doing exactly what Vetinari did.
