** The episode ''To Cur, with Love'', which aired a month after the 2012 presidential election, ends with a time filler sequence of Burns recording a political advertisement expressing his displeasure with Mitt Romney loosing the election.
---> '''Burns:''' And we've got to change our approach to immigration. I have a progressive proposal to let into this country 200 grimy Irishmen a year. I've got lots of potatoes that need peeling and stables to be mucked out.
---> '''Smithers:''' Sir, the insta-polls are in. You're just digging yourself deeper.
---> '''Burns:''' Well, then let me just say this. Marco Rubio es un panuela rosa.
---> '''Smithers:''' I'm afraid you just made things even worse.
---> '''Burns:''' How? Why?
---> '''Smithers:''' You just said Marco Rubio is a pink handkerchief.
---> '''Burns:''' This public service announcement is over. Execute the cameraman!

Not to be confused with DugInDeeper where someone pursues something because they're told they're great at it, even though they're not, or DugTooDeep, which is about physical digging.

digging. Nor DigYourOwnGrave, for that matter.

* The opening skit of the 2006 Emmys had host Conan O'Brien wandering onto the set of several TV Shows. The final bit had him walking into an empty house, only to find himself confronted by ''Series/{{Dateline}}'''s Chris Hansen and in the middle of another edition of "To Catch A Predator", at which point every legitimate excuse he gave only made things worse. In particular, claiming that "it's my second time" (he also hosted in 2002), and "I did it once and I liked it and thought I should do it again", prompting Hansen to declare, "Of all the predators I've met, you are by far the creepiest."

** Robert, again, while trying to endear himself to [[ObnoxiousInlaws Amy's parents]], who are staying over.
---> '''Robert:''' We have a great bed, you're really going to enjoy it... Not "enjoy" enjoy. Sleep! Enjoyable sleep! Cause that's all you'll be doing, I'm sure... Which is not saying you can't do what you want cause you can... It's not like you'll be breaking any Commandments.
---> '''Ray:''' It's like your mouth is falling down the stairs.

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has main character Captain John Rumford, USMC, launching a relatively innocuous anti-feminist prank. But when called before his CO to explain himself, he handles himself poorly: rather than faking contrition, he attempts to justify himself by [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad denouncing feminism in the Corps]]. That goes about as well as might be expected, which is why he spends most of the story as a ''former'' Marine.

* In the ''[=HawthoRNe=]'' episode "Final Curtain", the titular nurse keeps doing this with a doctor (or nurse, it wasn't really specified). She tries to get him to talk Arabic to a patient's husband, but (1) the husband is speaking Dari (as we find out from the Army vet nurse Sullivan) and is thus Afghani, & (2) the guy in the turban is ''Sikh'', not any kind of Muslim (and from Chicago).

* James Tobin has this happen to him in the game InThe1stDegree. He changes his story of what happened between him and Zack more than once. He admits to shooting himself in the leg because he was afraid no one would believe him when he said that Zack was shot in self-defense. If you play the game right, you get to watch as the prosecutor Granger pins Tobin on the leg-shooting thing. Granger asks if Tobin's first thought was to protect himself as his own business partner was lying there at his feet bleeding to death. Tobin responds by saying no, and that he tried to give Zack CPR. Granger says "You tried giving CPR to a man who was bleeding from the throat?" Tobin then gives a "Yes! I mean...No!" Yep, Tobin is ''so'' experiencing this trope.

* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' does this to herself whenever she gets into trouble as Ping.
* Oh poor Naveen in ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. And to think, the poor shmuck's trying to [[spoiler: ''propose''.]] In the end, Tiana did admit that she thought the fumbling around was cute.
--> "You have had quite an influence on me, which is amazing because I have dated ''thousands'' of women and- *Tiana looks annoyed* uh, no, like, two, three- er, just other woman! And anyway, listen, you could not be more different, you know, you are- you are practically, aheh, one of the guys! *Tiana looks affronted* ''Nonono'', you are not a guy! Let me begin again. Uh-" *stumbles and falls to the floor along with the food* [[LampshadeHanging "I... am not myself tonight."]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'': Rumisiel manages to pull this big time when [[http://www.misfile.com/?page=1870 talking to Dr. Upton about his daughter.]] The comic provides a nice visual metaphor for what he's doing.
