* In the ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' episode "Last Laugh", Noah is criticized for over-analyzing jokes rather than simply relaxing and laughing at them. The problem is, the jokes in question are legitimately awful (unless you're, say, a seven-year-old), and he comes off more like the OnlySaneMan in some sort of world gone mad, where people will break into laughter at the slightest provocation. Especially the monster's last resort: a good old-fashioned fart. It gets Troy, but not Noah.

*** Unfortunately, played straight later on in the episode, when Krusty reforms his material - plenty of reviewers thought he just came off as a Creator/GeorgeCarlin knockoff and found his [[SoUnfunnyItsFunny attempts to eke observational humor from the yellow pages]] to be the real treat of the episode.

* A plot point in ''Series/TheMuppets 2015'' has Fozzie finding unexpected success with a new stand-up routine poking fun at his girlfriend Becky's foibles. It ''is'' funnier than his normal stand-up routine, which is [[StylisticSuck portrayed as even more terrible than usual]], but that's only relative; the audience reacts as though it's hilarious when it is, at best, passable.

* In-universe example: In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'', the most popular (and as far as we can see, only) television program in Bricksburg is a sitcom called ''Where Are My Pants?'', which appears to consist only of a pantsless man asking the titular question of his wife in a broad, affected tone. Main character Emmett finds this ''hilarious'', but the rest of the characters see this as just one more example of how incredibly bland he is.

* Punny Bones from ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV'' is a gnome jester who tells ''really'' bad jokes and puns because his humor was stolen by Baba Yaga. After you restore his humor...his jokes don't really get any funnier, he just tells more of them (if anything, his humor gets even ''worse''. The trio of hecklers in the audience with ad libbed dialogue consistently manage to be funnier than him.) Mercifully averted with the Ultimate Joke he teaches you (guaranteed to make ''anyone'' break out in laughter when they hear it,) since the player never hears it in full, leaving more to the imagination.

* Used deliberately in WetHotAmericanSummer; the host for the talent show tells extremely corny jokes that should only get an eye-roll from an audience but have the characters roaring in laughter.

This is far from the most surreal thing to happen in that movie though.

* In an issue of DC's ComicBook/{{Countdown|ToFinalCrisis}} [[Comicbook/WonderGirl Donna Troy]] calls Jason Todd "Re-Todd", [[DontExplainTheJoke a pun on "retard"]]. [[Franchise/GreenLantern Kyle Rayner]] tells her "good one", with a goofy expression as if it was an expert burn. Not only is it a bad joke, it's entirely out of character for Donna and Kyle, something [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] took special issue with in his review, as well as pointing out it was ableist joke.
