* In ''KickinIt'', [[LocalHangout Falafel Phil's]] displays an "A" from the health department in the front window - a RunningGag on the show is that Phil keeps a live goat in the kitchen.

* On ''Series/BabylonFive'', the [[SpaceFighter Starfury]] [[AcePilot pilots]] wear flight suits complete with patches for the various fighter squadrons based on B5, with slogans such as "Ugly But Well Hung"[[note]][[DontExplainTheJoke Starfuries are kept slung on racks in the hangar bay and launch by being dropped through a hatch in the floor.]][[/note]] At first, producer JMichaelStraczynski thought he was GettingCrapPastTheRadar, and only later did he learn that there effectively was no radar - the network had not bothered to assign any [[MoralGuardians censors]] to look out for such things.

* There is a eye chart in the background in ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead'' where the letters read "Burt is a slave driver and a cheap son of a bitch who's got you and me here."

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequel trilogy (and other EU sources) does this quite frequently...in an alien alphabet, called Aurebesh. If you [[CypherLanguage transcribe each character for its Roman equivalent]], it is just plain English. Some examples make sense in context (such as the screen of Anakin's Naboo Starfighter in ''Phantom Menace'') but most are simply inside jokes made by the creators of the material.

** In ''End of Evangelion'', Misato reads what really happened at NERV. [[FreezeFrameBonus People who paused at the right time]] will see what she's ''really'' reading: The history of Gainax, where certain words have been replaced with all-caps plot related words, such as "SEELE", "ADAM", and "SECOND IMPACT".

* The ''Daily Prophet'' newspapers in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' film releases. Most notable is one in the first film with an article about a 700-year-old wizard celebrating his birthday, with over a million guests said to attend the party, the hilariously huge numbers being distinctly absurd if you're at all familiar with Potter canon.

* In the first season of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', an invisible girl is (eventually) taken by the government and put in a classroom with other invisible children. They are asked to open their textbooks. We learn today's lesson will be on infiltrating a cult compound to assassinate its leader... the textbook is readable in DVD format, and consists of the lyrics to "Happiness is a Warm Gun" by Music/TheBeatles.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has an enormous number of them suiting its long run, but one of the most direct is the list of debunked claims by Rock Bottom in the episode Homer Bad Man. It's... lengthy, and include "[[TakeThatAudience If you are reading this, you have no life," and "[[SelfDeprecation The people writing these have no life]]."

* ''VideoGame/{{Vexx}}'' has numerous instances of text in the game's {{Fictionary}} slash SubstitutionCipher, Asataran. The longest of these is a very lengthy book title. If you actually take the time to translate it (not easy, since no translation guide is provided with the game manual--you've got to piece it together yourself--and the texture is blurred)--the title of the book turns out to be [[spoiler: "A Lesson in Patience."]]

* Appropriately for a cartoon about secrets, ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' jam packs its frames with secret messages and foreshadowing, but there are occasional straight-up gags. For example, in Irrational Treasure, a list of hidden historical truths includes "Writing jokes for cartoons is more important than sleep."
