* 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''.)

* "Already this is a better Superman/superhero movie than ''Film/ManOfSteel''" has become this for a lot of internet critics. Maybe funny the first time if you hated the movie, otherwise...

* ''MysteryTeam'' In-universe example: Charlie compares a comatose old man to a corpse in explaining in why he couldn't be a murder suspect... then makes the same joke when discussing a seven-year old kid.

* ''CalvinAndHobbes'': An in-universe example, Calvin has the philosophy that if a novelty Christmas song is funny the first time, it's funny ''every'' time. His parents disagreed.

sense. The general is still upset, but at least he's not upset because anybody told him he did a mistake, which is...better?
