** One particular strip had RealityEnsues when after utilizing this ability, Snoopy has an abrupt crash landing due to his ears becoming too tangled up from the spinning.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' unintentionally does this to ''himself,'' while winding a leg too much preparing for another literal KickTheDog gag with Odie.
** He also has wound up Odie's ears like an airplane propellor on occasion. RealityEnsues when his flight ends as his ears unwind.

This is a creature that flies using an organic propeller instead of wings. Though [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flagellum some bacterial life forms]] in RealLife really do move this way, it is impossible in more complex organisms, because such a structure requires at least two separate parts and there'd be no way for their nerves, veins, ''et cetera'' to make it from one to the other. It does tend to show up in [[SpeculativeFiction fiction]], though, largely due to the RuleOfCool and because [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning everything is better with spinning.]]

* An ''Webcomic/AwkwardZombie'' uses this as a theoretical explanation for the burning question of ''how the hell [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Doduo]] can learn fly''. Answer: by spinning its two heads (and necks).
