* [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Can be done in]] ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet 2'' and ''[=LittleBigPlanet=] 3'':
**In the second game, in the level "Pipe Dreams" in the Factory of a Better Tomorrow, there's a moment where you have to pull levers to move fingers on a hand to form the hand that rockers use. However, you can also choose to put up just the middle finger, which will cause a sign that reads "Denied" to cover the offending finger until you put up another finger or take the middle one down.
**In the "The Journey Home" level kit in the third game, one of the levels is based on the Factory of a Better Tomorrow, and the hand from the above paragraph makes a reappearance in a 2-player section. You have to put the pinky and index fingers in the same position that you had to in the second game, but you can also just put up the middle finger again, causing another "Denied" sign to come down and Clive to say "Nice try. We have policies against that."
