* In ''JohnnyTest'', Johnny goes skiing and is denied access to a trail due to it being "NK-13", for no kids under age 13. Trail markers do not work that way, despite the size or difficulty. Though it's unlikely they'd want 10-year-olds going on double-diamond trails, they don't regulate it.

** When the show was UnCanceled, the roles were reversed. One episode had Dexter's dad repeatedly mess up a golf tournament because he had a warped understanding of the rules and ignored Dexter trying to correct him. For one thing, he didn't understand what the holes were and thought you had to avoid the ball falling into them.

* From ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'', in one episode John and Sarah are watching a chess game. When Sarah asks him to "explain what she's seeing", John replies that one of the players has just captured the other's queen, causing Sarah to demand "English, please!" Apparently, basic chess rules are far too technical for [[ViewersAreMorons the average woman]] Sarah Connor.

->'''Jason''': Joe Montana fades back to pass. He sees Jerry Rice open in the end zone!\\
'''Peter''': Wrong team. [[note]]Rice and Montana played together for the 49ers for a while, but Montana was playing for the Chiefs at the time the strip was written.[[/note]]\\
'''Jason''': He sees Derrick Thomas open in the end zone!\\
'''Peter''': Wrong position. [[note]]Thomas was a linebacker with the Chiefs. Since that's a defensive position, he wouldn't have been on the field at the same time as Montana.[[/note]]\\
'''Jason''': He sees Wayne Gretzky open in the end zone!\\
'''Peter''': Wrong sport. Moron. [[note]]Wayne Gretzky played hockey; the rest of this conversation is about American football.[[/note]]\\
'''Peter''' (after Jason leaves, looking at a power strip): So is this a hard drive or a modem?

** The 1990 Julio César Chávez–Medrick Taylor fight when referee Richard Steele declared Chávez the winner by TKO with two seconds left in the final round. Since many observers believed Taylor was ahead on points and would have won had the clock run out, they were appalled that Steele didn't check the clock and just let it run. But Steele's job was only to see if Chávez's last minute assault left Taylor unable to continue ''regardless'' of the time, and since Taylor didn't respond to Steele ''twice'' asking if he was okay, it was the right call. Furthermore, when asked by Larry Merchant, Taylor was out of it that he said Steele ''didn't even ask him any questions''. Also, for the entire time that Steele was giving him a standing eight-count and asking him not once, but ''twice'' if he was OK, as mentioned earlier, Taylor never let go of the ropes after he pulled himself up.
