* On ''Series/TheLateShowWithStevenColbert'', Colbert makes one when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37-pPk0bJ-o calling on all Americans to eat 3 extra pounds of cheese to get rid of the oversupply of cheese made by American dairy farmers:]]
-->'''Colbert:''' There comes a time when every generation is asked to serve their country. So I'm calling on all Americans to fight the gouda fight. We don't do this because it is easy cheese, but because it is havarti. We must walk softly and carry a big mozzerella stick. We must boldly asiago where no manchego has gone briefore and if we do, if we do, we will become cheddar than all the rest. So dig deep and find that extra gruyere, get in the calzone and join me, because I'm feta-up to here and if you think I can do this provalone, you ricotta be kidding me. We must come together and slay the munster. Just fondue it! Jarlsburg ready for swiss?

* In the ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'' TV series {{omake}}, they spoof the warrior training that King Kashew gives Parn by replacing it with lessons in how to pun properly. This is the same omake where the wise and level-headed sorcerer is played as a DirtyOldMan, and the skilled and just knight is portrayed as a clueless kid. (Let's not forget the high-elf-turned-[[TheDitz ditz]].)

You have to keep from laughing, or you'll miss a great deal of the puns.

--->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.
