-->3. Someone else asks: �But who dares to tell [[BadBoss the general]] that he did a mistake?� Rhetorically, of course, since nobody ever dares to tell the general this.

* Every time InspectorGadget receives his next assignment on a self-destructive piece of paper, he reads it, then crumbles the paper and tosses it into whatever compartment his chief is hiding in this time, where it explodes right in the chief's face. There was one time when the chief was hiding in a trash can and InspectorGadget [[SubvertedTrope just tossed it on the ground]]. [[DoubleSubverted So someone else picked it up and threw it in the trash can]]. Cue explosion.
* BikerMiceFromMars destroying Limburger's tower in the end of every episode.

Like a conventional RunningGag, the success of this methodology depends on whether the joke was funny in the first place. Unlike the RunningGag, however, the joke must be able to stand on its own in each use ''in addition'' to after multiple other uses. [[TropesAreNotBad This isn't a bad thing]], if the author can keep the joke from going into OverUsedRunningGag range or getting too tedious.

* Another InUniverse example: the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Ripped Pants." SpongeBob rips his pants, and everyone laughs. At first, he's embarrassed and upset, but when he sees that Sandy thought it was funny, he starts doing it on purpose. It begins to annoy everyone in Bikini Bottom, especially when his stunt involves pretending to drown.

* There was a gag in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' first used in "Hooked on a Ceiling" that was so clever, it was used in several other shorts. It went like this: Somebody gets angry at the three Warner siblings, tells them to get out then picks them up and tries to ''throw'' them out. Then the scene shifts to the outside of the building, and somehow, it's not them, but the guy who was ''about to throw them'' who is thrown out. He sits up with an expression that seems to say "How did they do ''that''?" And then goes back inside.

* ''SaturdayNightLive'': Skits '''live''' on this trope. Typically, a character is built around one single joke, becomes a recurring character and can run for ''years'' and even get a ''movie'' with nothing but variations on the original joke (see: ''Film/ItsPat'' and ''MacGruber''.)
