* In one episode of ''Radio/JohnFinnemoresSouvenirProgramme'', Patsy Straightwoman attempts to enter the special caff on ferries that's only for lorry drivers by pretending to be a lorry driver on her way to Portugal. The lorry drivers guarding the door are not convinced, but are particularly clueless about testing her ("What colour is your lorry?" "Blue." "Ooh, some lorries ''are'' blue."), culminating with:
-->'''Lorry driver''': If you're going to Portugal, you must know my friend ... Pedro?\\
'''Patsy''': Yes. I do.\\
'''Lorry driver''': Well when you see him, tell him Steve says hi.\\
'''Patsy''': Will do.\\
'''Lorry driver''': Ha! You just gave yourself away, little lady. My name's not Steve!\\
''{{Beat}}''\\
'''Patsy''': Okay, but how could I possibly have known that?\\
'''Lorry driver''': Argh, I should have lied about ''Pedro'''s name! I keep doing this! Okay, in you go.

* Stanley Johnson, [[LikeFatherLikeSon father]] of British politician [[UpperClassTwit Boris]] [[CloudCuckooLander Johnson]], used to be a spy. Supposedly, the first time he tried out his cover story -- that he was working in the Foreign Office as the desk officer for the Sudan -- it was at the Foreign Office, to the actual desk officer for the Sudan.

* Linnea Sinclair uses this in ''An Accidental Goddess''. The time traveling protagonist claims to be visiting from another spaceport, which in her day didn't have a lot of traffic. Unfortunately, the woman sitting next to her at the bar is from there, and is suspicious when the protagonist doesn't recognize the name of a local bigshot. Fortunately, the protagonist is also telepathic, and can pull the relevant details out of the woman's mind.

* In ''TerrorIsland'', Stephen makes up the name "Ned Q. Sorcerer, D.D.S." on the spot when attempting to crash a class reunion at Center of the Earth University. The ''real'' Mr. Sorcerer shows up a few strips later (but is catapulted away.) Stephen must later do a presentation in front of all the university alumni entitled "Ned Q. Sorcerer answers trivia questions about his life." He attributes the real Ned showing up to bilocation.
* In ''GorgeousPrincessCreamyBeamy'' the alien "X" Hoshibana claims to be from USA. He [[http://creamybeamy.comicgenesis.com/d/20071015.html eventually realizes]] he should have picked a more obscure nation as his fake background.
