* ''Series/BetterOffTed'': Veronica is late for a meeting because she was working on the "dough-based projectile ventilation targeting system". Translation: she was competing against Linda to see who could throw more bagels into the air vent.

* 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.
