A form of BaitAndSwitch comedy that teases with prejudice and discrimination, where one party looks like they're about to discriminate against someone for one reason, a reason that would be appallingly un-PC, but in reality[[DramaticPause …]] it's because they like avocado ice cream. (What? Don't judge it 'till you try it!)

* Used in the ''ComicBook/SupremePower'' comics, where the [[CaptainErsatz Lex Luthor stand-in]] Emil Burbank tells the {{Ultimate|Marvel}} Nick Fury, who looks a lot like Creator/SamuelLJackson, that he "despise[s] you people." And then clarifies that he of course means security specialists. What else?

** In ''Discworld/MenAtArms'' when Angua, the new City Watch recruit, says "is it because I'm a w--" and you think she's saying "woman" until it turns out she's also a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]]. Both Angua and Carrot (and the reader, given how certain lines are phrased) think that Vimes doesn't want her in the Watch because she's a woman. No, he just doesn't like werewolves. But the misunderstanding persists for most of the book, and of course means that Angua initially has very little respect for him.

** "The Figgis Agency" has Archer ask Cheryl to look into a high-priced Hollywood divorce attorney named Alan Shapiro. After a few seconds, Cheryl says, "Well, we can guess he doesn't eat shellfish!" Everyone reacts negatively, but Cheryl reveals it's because he's allergic. Subverted when Archer points out she shouldn't assume a lawyer with the name "Shapiro" is Jewish... and she says, "Gross! He's ''Jewish''?"
