Films -- Animated ]]



* In ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', [[MagnificentBastard Colonel Hans Landa]], in the middle of a conversation that will alter the course of history, pauses to ask his native English-speaking captives if he is properly using the expression "Bingo!"
* [[FirstPersonSmartass Harry Lockhart]] does this in ''Film/KissKissBangBang'', to much hilarity.
* In ''Film/CarryOnMatron'', Sid Carter and his partners in crime, Freddy and Ernie, are planning to steal a stockpile of birth control pills from a maternity hospital. As they look over the plans for the hospital and Sid explains where the pills are kept, Ernie asks where the babies are kept. An impatient Sid tells him they're in the wards, of course, but Ernie says it's not quite so obvious - he was born on the top deck of a Number 73 bus in Brixton High Street. Freddy says that's impossible as the Number 73 goes to Putney and Wimbledon, not Brixton, and then Sid says they're both wrong, it goes to Holloway (where he used to visit his wife in the women's prison).

* According to the man himself, author Creator/PeterDavid is so prone to doing this that he called his column in ''Comics Buyer's Guide'' "But I Digress..." as a [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] of it.

* Many of SethMacFarlane's works are prone to this. ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' employ [[CutawayGag 10-second shorts to provide comedy]], connected only to the dialogue by a "Just Like X" statement made by one of the characters.

* The Music/WeirdAlYankovic song "Albuquerque" is a long, rambling screed that starts off with an account of his mom serving him sauerkraut for breakfast that touches on the number of molecules in Creator/LeonardNimoy's butt, moving out of the house, playful shriners, fluffy towels, ukulele-playing lepers, back-shavers, Albanian women with really bad body odor, Doctor Pepper, an airplane crash, an overly stuffed suitcase, eating soup out of ashtrays, air conditioning, those little mints that housekeepers leave on your pillow at high-class hotels, hermaphrodites with that Flock-of-Seagulls haircut, weasels, peaches, [[Characters/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]], mint-flavored dental floss, working at the Sizzler, excessive ear wax, Torso Boy, and a lucky autographed glow-in-the-dark snorkel, all to end up at the entire point of the song:
