Satirical "How To" guides. The [[TheBlindLeadingTheBlind instructions are faulty]], or the person following them does it horribly, or the instructions are loaded with {{irony}} about how ''not'' to do it.

* Dick Loudon in ''{{Newhart}}'' wrote how-to guides. They were straight how to guides, but one episode had the town ready to burn them because they thought it helped a man escape from prison.
