* The third season of ''Series/TheAmazingRace'' featured an infamous incident in which Heather and Eve took a taxi to the Pit Stop for the leg, even though the clue clearly said to proceed on foot. Following this, they tried to make some sort of lame excuse about why they thought it was okay, leading one fan to create a graphic with host Phil Keoghan holding a book titled ''Reading for Dummies'' and one of the two writing "Walk means on foot, not take a taxi" on a chalkboard and the other wearing a dunce cap.

* One of the new additional powerups in the ''Afertbirth'' DLC of ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac: Rebirth'' is a dunce cap that gives the player character permanently crossed eyes. It's also one of the biggest examples of a PowerUpLetdown as it makes it so your shots only go at diagonals instead of straight, almost as if saying the player would have to be a dunce to take it (outside of certain item combinations)
