* SystemOfADown's "Aerials" is also composed of these. "Life is a waterfall/ We drink from the river/ then we turn around and put up our walls" WordOfGod has said that this song [[TheWalrusWasPaul doesn't really mean anything]], but that was just a joke. The song has been confirmed to be about how a mentally handicapped child looks at the world by both Shavo and Daron.

* In the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' games from ''Wild World'' onward you can meet [[EruditeStoner Pascal the Otter]], who will hit you with such "deep truths" as "The more you learn, [[VerbalTic man]], the less you know" and "The best things in life are free, but if you try to sell them, you always seem to make a killing".

* An episode of ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' has Creator/{{Laozi}} do this to Creator/SunTzu, his teammate ("A bowl is most useful when it is empty."). The general has had enough at that point and tells the philosopher to fill that bowl with "shit that makes some sense."

The general has had enough at that point and tells the philosopher to fill that bowl with "shit that makes some sense."" It actually did make sense in context (their best move at that point was to do nothing and let the other team tear each other apart) but there was no reason to be so cryptic about it.
