* In the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' spinoff ''Literature/TouhouKourindouCuriositiesOfLotusAsia'', one chapter deals with Rinnosuke finding a device he describes as "a grey box, small enough to be held in the hands, made of... plastic, I believe it was called? [...] On top of that, this one has several differently-shaped buttons and switches on it." He's worried it's an ArtifactOfDoom because his NameDar says it can "control just about anything. For example, manipulating people, making them fight, starting wars and, depending on the circumstances, even destroying the world." After spending most of the chapter trying to keep it from falling into the wrong hands, it gets stolen by [[TheChessmaster Yukari]], the '''last''' person he wanted to have it. [[spoiler:She explains that the device is harmless -- it's a UsefulNotes/GameBoy.]]

* In ''{{QI}}'', to avoid setting the klaxon off by saying [[spoiler:porn]], Jimmy Carr said that [[TheInternetIsForPorn 70% of the internet]] is filled with "gentlemen's special interest literature" (a common euphemism, of course). It didn't work.

* One obfuscated unit of measure that occasionally appears is "becquerels per dioptre", which uses obscure units (becquerel measures atomic decay while dioptre measures lens-focusing length) but cancels out to metres per second.

** Played straight later when a visibly-annoyed Shen stands by idly while Jack Burton describes at length how a potion is making him feel positive, confident, and strong; it's implied Shen may have simply gotten Burton a little drunk.

* In the mid 90s, around the time that businesses were just starting to use the internet to do stuff that we now take for granted as basic things to do when in business, IBM (as a manufacturer of much of the hardware used for commercial computer systems) ran a series of adverts involving a typical IT team interacting with the company execs. One of them featured an aversion/inversion of this trope:
-->'''Exec's PA''': David, the meeting starts in ten minutes, what do we tell them about why we're developing this website thing?
-->'''IT Guy''': ''[Draws breath, raises finger]''...
-->'''Exec's PA''': ''[Interrupting]'' In language they can understand
-->'''IT Guy''': ''[After a few seconds' thought]'' Tell them that for every penny they spend, they'll get four pennies back
