** GermanHumor is pretty fond of gallows humor. Another old literal one: "Back in the middle ages the criminal who was about to be hanged on Monday tells the judge 'Great start of the week, huh?'" (Please note that in many countries, the calendar week begins on Monday.)

* Another Disney example, in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ChipAndDalesRescueRangers'', Fat Cat is using a device that makes cows unable to give milk. When the protagonists question the cows, they'r clearly nervous, because if they "don't think milk, the farmers will start thinking hamburger!" (The heroes manage to destroy the device, but seeing as this is the eventual fate of most cows anyway...)

* Protagonists in ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' games (particularly after their second game, when they've become more GenreSavvy) tend to have this reaction to the villain's OneWingedAngel forms. Particularly Leon.
