* No matter the consequences, no matter the situation, [[TheOffice Michael Scott]] ''will'' say "That's what she said!" He once said it within minutes of being reprimanded for saying it.
** Scott's predecessor in ''Series/TheOfficeUK'', David Brent, had a similar problem; his jokes were less predictable, but equally unfunny. These two may be the patron saints of this trope.

* One episode of WesternAnimation/SouthPark had Kyle paying Cartman not to make jokes at the expense of his sterotypically-jewish (Woody Allen UpToEleven) visiting relative. Less than five minutes pass and Cartman makes a pun about the Holocaust.

* In Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire, this trait nearly gets each of the Lannister brothers killed on at least half a dozen occasions. They were pretty much born without the gene that allows you to KEEP YOUR BIG MOUTH SHUT, no matter the consequences. Jaime even lampshades this at one point, when he offers [[PsychoForHire Vargo Hoat]] incentive for a huge ransom in sapphires (which no one has). When asked what possessed him to make such a stupid claim, he says that he honestly just wanted to hear Hoat, who has a comically slobbery lisp, say "thapphierth."

* ''{{Freakazoid}}'' had this as his biggest weakness. When fighting [[JustForFun/CandleJack That Guy]], Freakazoid insists on saying his name even as the captives beg him not to. When asked ''why'' he said the name, knowing what would happen, {{Freakazoid}} explains that he was attempting to invoke a GilliganCut.

* ''TheSimpsons'' had Bart caught up in this trope when performing for the Olympic committee. Bart's stand-up comedy act consists almost entirely of him making jokes directly insulting the committee member's nationalities. When Chalmers demands to know what could have possibly made Skinner think putting this act on was a good idea, all a chuckling Skinners can say is "it was good in rehearsal". He quickly catches on, though, when Bart asks Chalmers where he grew up and Chalmers responds with a string of ludicrously obvious set-ups to punch lines.

* TheAnnoyingOrange, [[{{Flanderization}} moreso later on]]. He even says in the Cartoon Network series that it's a medical condition known as "gigglechuckleitis".

* In an early ''KeroroGunsou'' episode, Keroro tries to warn the Hinatas about the traps Giroro has set, but can't resist stepping on a BananaPeel thrown by Giroro.
* In ''{{Nichijou}}'', a lot of the antics of the eight year old Professor fall into this. Examples include constantly modifying her robot Nano with things like hidden dessert compartments and over the top reactions.

* Chandler on ''{{Friends}}'' to the point that his friends made him make a NewYearsResolution to stop.
* Shawn is usually like this is ''{{Psych}}''. Subverted in "An Evening with Mr. Yang" when Shawn asks Gus to keep the mood light while they track down Yang. Shawn and the audience find Gus's antics amusing, the other characters...not so much.

** "The Milk Carton" has Cartman go too far with a joke (of Kenny putting his butt where his face should be for a school picture) by sending it in to be placed on milk cartons for Missing Children. After a couple who legitimately look like Kenny's photo show up hoping to find their son, he continually '''wants''' to make a joke, but the situation "broke his funny-bone".

* One episode of WesternAnimation/SouthPark had Kyle paying Cartman not to make jokes at the expense of his sterotypically-jewish (Woody Allen UpToEleven) visiting relative. Less then five minutes pass and Cartman makes a pun about the Holocaust.
