* In ''Discworld/TheLastContinent'' there's been a millennia-long drought in [=FourEcks=]. Some of the settlers have grandparents who say that in TheOldCountry water used to fall out of the sky, but everyone who grew up there thinks that's ridiculous.

* On ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'', Koki, Aviva and Jimmy Z all assume narwhals are imaginary, so Chris and Martin have them set out for the Arctic to find one. Later, the brothers find a carving of a ''two-horned'' narwhal, and need to find one to prove ''those'' exist (albeit rarely) too.

* Humorist Robert Benchley wrote an article called "Movie Boners" (back then, [[HaveAGayOldTime "boner" meant "mistake"]] where he listed various mistakes from (obviously fictitious) movies. One example was "In the picture called 'Dr. Tanner Can't Eat' there is a scene laid in Budapest. There is no such place as Budapest." A reader failed to get the joke and wrote a letter to Benchley, criticizing him for not knowing that Budapest is the capital of Hungary. So Benchley wrote another article, "What - No Budapest?", where he asserted: "There is no such place as Budapest. Perhaps you are thinking of Bucharest, and there is no such place as Bucharest, either."

* In ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' Goldie Wilson was working as a simple busboy in a diner, and when he gets the idea to be mayor, the owner scoffs at the idea of a "colored mayor." There had been a number of African American mayors prior to the film's story line, but they numbered less than a half dozen, and were in charge of small rural towns, it was not until the 1960s' that an African American was elected mayor in a city.
