--> he briskly took out a pair of scissors with which he cut his fingernails, and from the parings of his thumbnail he improvised a kind of speaking-trumpet, like a vast funnel, and put the end up to his ear.

* In ''TheAdventureGame'', one of the Argonds had an ear trumpet that was completely useless; his hearing only improved when he wore his spectacles.

--> Yakko: "You shouldn't put stuff like that in your ear. You'll go deaf."
--> Beethoven: "I ''am'' deaf!"
--> Yakko, Wakko, and Dot (to the audience): "Too late!"

* Used for a noticeable gag in the italian comic ''Alan Ford'': during a bank robbery, one of the [[ItMakesSenseInContext ghost robbers]] tries to intimidate a seemingly deaf old man with a ear trumpet, who can't hear what's he's saying. Then the ghost just [[AmusingInjuries shoot a bullet down the trumpet]], causing it to exit from the old man's other ear, much to his shock.
* In ''ComicBook/TheBeano'', Eric Wimp ate an old Banana and became an older version of ComicStrip/{{Bananaman}} who used an ear trumpet to attempt to hear a cry for help.
