* One of Alan Dean Foster's [[WeirdWest Mad Amos Malone]] stories has the mystical mountain man and a SnakeOilSalesman named Sam both asked by a group of farmers to try to purify a plot of cursed earth so they can farm it. After the two compete with demonstrations of [[GreenThumb magical produce growing,]] Amos warns the farmers that the land's curse is too strong, and bad things will happen if they don't leave it alone. Sam assures them he can fix it (and he's cheaper than Amos) so they hire him. After Amos leaves, Sam says that if anything does go wrong with the land, they can tell everyone that it's his fault. His fault, or his name's not [[spoiler: Sam Andreas.]]

** "Battle-hymn" is ostensibly about someone trying to influence the outcome of a vote by Mars colonists on whether to allow Mars to be used as a location for potentially dangerous hyperspace experiments. To counter the other side's jingle ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gXqOVsDrlw No, No, A Thousand Times No]]), they get the colonists, who were of French descent (but don't speak the language any more), all singing the French national anthem. It works, because although they don't really understand the lyrics, they know the title: [[spoiler:[[{{Mondegreen}} Mars say yes!]]]]

* Played for drama- in the ''Series/BlackMirror'' serial "[[Recap/BlackMirrorPlaytest Playtest]]", a young man is asked to test an up-and-coming horror game that adapts to the player's fears. Unfortunately, the game zeroes in on his {{Adult Fear}}s and plays mind games with him that way; he has to deal with his id, his fears of Alzheimer's, and many other horrors. The game even fakes him out of leaving twice-- and the third, most sobering exit, where he sees his mother in the exact same Alzheimer's fate he feared, was a fakeout as well. In reality, he never left the game, much less started it; he was killed when his phone's signal interfered with the system, frying his brain. After convulsing calling out to his ailing mother in vain, the staff cooly sits and writes down his final moments: [[spoiler:"Called 'Mom'"]].

* AC-bu's short ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09o0nRFAwN8 Anzenunten no Shiori]]''[[note]]安全運転のしおり, ''Guide to Safe Driving''[[/note]] does this in Japanese. It's all about a humble salaryman trying to drive to work, only to run a red light and get chased down by the police. Eventually, the chase gets so bad the cars end up somewhere near a mountain road with a lot of steep curves; the police and salaryman lose control of their vehicles and drive over the edge, but before they can die in the ensuing explosion, a mysterious cop on a motorcycle catches them all and carries them to safety. The cop removes their helmet, revealing [[SamusIsAGirl she was a woman the whole time]]. Noting her careful driving saved their lives, she promptly introduces herself as ...[[spoiler:Shiori. That's right, ''Shiori's safe driving''[[note]]Anzenunten no '''Shiori'''[[/note]] saved the day.]]

* One joke builds up a convoluted setting on the island of the Trids. The short version is that a hostile giant lives on a mountain in the middle of the island. This giant has a habit of punting Trids to their doom when they try to climb the mountain, so the Trids send a rabbi to negotiate with the giant. Upon reaching the mountaintop, the rabbi encounters the giant and asks "WhyIsntItAttacking" The giant responds: [[spoiler:"Silly rabbi, kicks are for Trids!"]]

* There's a long, convoluted greentext from Website/FourChan about two Chinese twins named Ving and Ling. Ving hates his name, so he goes with Ling to the town hall and files all the necessary paperwork to change it to Lee ("like Creator/BruceLee"). At the last moment, he feels conflicted because he doesn't want to betray his family tradition, so Ling pulls out some money to pay the cancellation fee. But suddenly, their father appears, and he's supportive of his son's decision to change his name to Lee even if it goes against tradition. He embraces his son and declares: [[spoiler:[[Music/{{Journey}} "Don't stop. Be Lee, Ving. Hold on to that fee, Ling."]]]]
