* In a 2011 pre-game conference leading up to a divisional playoff game against the New England Patriots and the rival New York Jets, Patriots tight end Wes Welker would use his stage time to launch a stealth TakeThat at Jets coach Rex Ryan, referencing rumors of a foot fetish video involving the bombastic head coach's wife (full transcript available via [[http://deadspin.com/5732917/wes-welker-makes-11-references-to-feet-in-one-press-conference Deadspin]]). The Jets would ultimately have the last laugh, as they beat the Pats 28-21 in that game.

In {{Anime}}, the GagSeries is also famous for using the Hurricane of Puns. Japanese comedy is quite fond of puns and malapropisms, because of how certain words and names in the Japanese language can be misquoted or alternatively written. This is one reason why many WidgetSeries don't translate into other languages very well, or get treated to a GagDub instead. Puns that must be explained [[DontExplainTheJoke usually end up not being funny.]] ({{Woolseyism}} is when it does work out, usually with the dub replacing the jokes with more local ones that are the same in spirit instead of sticking to a literal translation.)

** Samson Oak in the Alola arc loves his Pokemon-related puns (many of which will likely be LostInTranslation in the dub).



* Yet another [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] example is their dub of ''Anime/UltimateMuscle'', which they renamed ''Ultimate Muscle''. In this case, though, the puns (along with the goofy and over-the-top voice acting) actually ''work to the show's advantage'', thanks to the ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'' series itself being an action-comedy. Thus, despite it getting the [[{{Bowdlerise}} usual treatment]] that 4Kids is known for implementing, ''Ultimate Muscle'' is still considered one of their better dubs.
