--->While I agree with Supreme Court that the real estate broker, as agent for the seller, is under no duty to disclose to a potential buyer the phantasmal reputation of the premises and that, in his pursuit of a legal remedy for fraudulent misrepresentation against the seller, plaintiff hasn't a ghost of a chance, I am nevertheless moved by the spirit of equity to allow the buyer to seek rescission of the contract of sale and recovery of his down payment...From the perspective of a person in the position of plaintiff herein, a very practical problem arises with respect to the discovery of a paranormal phenomenon: "Who you gonna call?" [[DontExplainTheJoke as a title song to the movie]] "Film/{{Ghostbusters}}" asks. Applying the strict rule of ''caveat emptor'' to a contract involving a house possessed by poltergeists conjures up visions of a psychic or medium routinely accompanying the structural engineer and Terminix man on an inspection of every home subject to a contract of sale. It portends that the prudent attorney will establish an escrow account lest the subject of the transaction come back to haunt him and his client or pray that his malpractice insurance coverage extends to supernatural disasters. In the interest of avoiding such untenable consequences, the notion that a haunting is a condition which can and should be ascertained upon reasonable inspection of the premises is a hobgoblin which should be exorcised from the body of legal precedent and laid quietly to rest.

* Particularly after 2009, any given film score composed by Creator/MichaelGiacchino will feature some truly awful puns in the track listing, particularly when riffing on the scenes themselves. There's a {{Twittter}} account called Giacchino Cue Titles.

* ''The Penguins of Madagascar'' features many celebrity names indicative of actions taken by referenced characters, such as "Nicholas...Cage them!"
* Disney's ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' offers a hurricane of creatures with punny names in the flowers scene. We have the rocking-horse fly, the bread-and-butterflies, dog and caterpillars, tiger lillies in love with dande-lions, get-up-in-the-morning glories and lazy daisies.

** And again in the third where it even gets {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by Music/OzzyOsbourne saying they did the exact same joke the previous two movies. Further parodied in that he used the words everyone else was deliberately avoiding ("Boobs!") but in a non-mammarial context. The joke is that they're ''all'' out of context. The satellite was shape like a pair of breasts (Boobs), and Ozzy was bitching about how everyone doing the joke is stupid.

** Posion Ivy, the movie's other main villain was not above a few puns herself; after she breaks Mr. Freeze out of jail he tells her that he needs more diamonds to power his freeze suit, and she gives us this groaner:

* Music/DanBull's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-rubHhmhpo John Lennon]]" is full of puns on Music/JohnLennon and Music/TheBeatles' song titles.



* After the events of the Tifa vs Yang "WebAnimation/DeathBattle" [[spoiler: Yang won by breaking Tifa's neck]] the fandom has never stopped making puns about it. This only got worse during the cataclysmic events of RWBY's third season finale [[spoiler: Yang had one of her hands cut off, leaving her completely broken]]
