* Peter from ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'', in one of his asides about police work, remarks that just ''being'' police is ample grounds for this trope.

** A rather amusing variation happens in the third book, when Harry and Hermione go back in time to save Buckbeak and Sirius. When Fudge sees that Buckbeak somehow went missing since he last saw him, he starts freaking out trying to figure out what happened. A very unconcerned Dumbledore (who seems to know what's going on, [[TimeyWimeyBall despite not actually having given Harry and Hermione the time travel plan yet]]) suggests that maybe Hagrid could fetch them all some drinks. Harid, who's over the moon about Buckbeak escaping, is happy to comply.

Finally he started drinking rubbing alcohol straight from he bottle, after hearing about truly depressing news from the states. He concludes the segment by saying:
