** This trope is zanily parodied, as is usual in the show. When Homer is asked how he acquired a ''truck'', he answers, "It fell off a truck-truck." It is immediately used again in the same scene, where Bart drives a ''truck-truck'' and is asked where he got it. He answers, "It fell off a truck-truck... -truck." Maggie then drives onto the scene with a truck-truck-truck.

* ''Series/InLivingColor'' spoofed the trope with "The Homeboy Shopping Network" with the pair of "hosts" gleefully selling merchandise ''from'' the truck instead of waiting for it to fall off.

* In the first part of the ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' arc "Shed", Spidey laments that his and ComicBook/BlackCat's thwarting of some smugglers went awry before he could quip that two defeated foes "must have fallen off the back of a truck", "[[DontExplainTheJoke because that's what these mob types say about the junk they steal from trucks]]."
-->'''Spider-Man:''' Looks like these two fell off the back of a truck...\\
'''Black Cat:''' What?\\
'''Spider-Man:''' Nothing.



* The Grimestreet Smuggler card in ''VideoGame/Hearthstone'''s line when summoned is "What, it fell off the truck."

* This also appears at least once in the ''VideoGame/MechWarrior'' games, where a supply of ordinarily legal eqipment can be bought for a suspiciously lower price than normal. The equipment is heavily implied to have been acquired by illicit means, while the seller in turn claims it fell out of a DropShip. This is a particularly poor excuse since Dropships are hermetically sealed against space before takeoff and during transit.

Well, they're sealed unless they're attacked by Aerospace Fighters that shoot holes in them. Sometimes that happens. And sometimes when it happens, things might fall out of the Dropship and land on something soft enough that they're still in a remarkably usable condition...
