* In ''Webcomic/OrderOfTheStick'', following Roy's death, Haley tries to break the news gently to his girlfriend Celia. Unfortunately, Celia takes Haley's metaphors [[LiterlMinded literally]], so Belkar has to be blunt and to the point in order to explain to her.

It generally comes in two versions: Ditz and Intentional. The Ditz version is just the person figuring it out for himself without realizing that the speaker was trying to be discreet. The Intentional version is character simply not caring about the delicacy of the matter or being [[JerkAss deliberately obnoxious]] about it.

It generally comes in two versions: Ditz and Intentional. Ditz version is just the person figuring it out for himself. Intentional being the euphemism is too insulting/obvious or the character simply doesn't care, and so busts the euphemism.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' when Kim has to take her brothers with her on a mission, before leaving the house, she asks if anyone has to do any 'business' before leaving. Ron doesn't understand it at first until Rufus whispers the true meaning in his ear. After hearing it, he immediately runs back into the house to use the bathroom.

** In "Ron the Man", Shego suggests hiring [[ArmsDealer Jack Hench]], an idea Drakken rejects as too expensive. Shego then proposes a way around that problem:

'''Drakken:''' Please! Hench never gives "free" anything. He... Oh, you mean ''stealing'', don't you?\\

* A darker example in ''Film/{{Conspiracy}}'', a drama about the Wannsee Conference, during which the Security Police managed to enact an anti-Jewish genocide (later termed "Operation Reinhard") which outshone the ones accomplished by the Wehrmacht, ''Einsatzgruppen'', and Regional Security Chiefs. The term 'evacuation' is frequently used to describe the Security Police's programme. After about an hour of this Lange, who works with the security forces in ''Reichskomissariat Ostland'' (and has been engaged in the usual 'preventative security' operations to eliminate demographics who might support the Communist Insurgency there), tires of his indirectness.

* A darker example in ''Film/{{Conspiracy}}'', a drama about the Wannsee Conference, during which the provisional plans for the 'Final Solution' were outlined; the term 'evacuation' is frequently used to describe the Nazi plans for the Jewish and other 'undesirables' in conquered territory. After about an hour of this Lange, the only one at the table currently active in combat stands up.
