** The episode “The Neutral Zone” has Troi pull up the family tree of Clare Raymond, a woman from the 1990s who has just awoken from cryogenic status. It seems not only are six of her ancestors actors who played [[Series/DoctorWho a certain Doctor]], but also among them are characters from such diverse sources as ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', ''Series/{{MASH}}'', and ''The Mary Tyler Moore Show''. Eventually, it seems the designers of the tree simply gave up and began tacking "Raymond" onto the names of ''TNG'' cast members ("Brent Spiner Raymond", for example.)
** Many of the pipes and ducts in the Jeffries tubes and inside the walls were labeled as "GNDN", an acronym for "Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing". Tiny labels elsewhere on the set featured the birthdates or initials of various members of the behind-the-scenes crew, or short poems or snippets of lyrics to songs from Music/TheBeatles to the theme tune from ''GilligansIsland''.

* ''Series/BetterOffTed'' has an example in the episode Bioshuffle when Ted and Linda share an office. At one point Linda accuses Ted of not being professional, and proves it by putting pieces of tape on her butt that read, "If you're reading this you're NOT being professional". Needless to say Ted read it.

* In an episode of ''TheSimpsons'' a trashy news program runs a list of errata that scrolls past at a ridiculous speed. [[FreezeFrameBonus Freeze frame reveals]] the message "If you can read this you have no life."

* In the original ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'', if you activate a computer console in Zanzibar, it says "A total FU exception has occurred at your location. All system functionality will be terminated. Press any key to power cycle the system. If system does not restart, scream at top of lungs and pound on keypad."

* In the final cutscene of ''SonicColors'' the first two lines of hexadecimal code translate exactly to what Yacker was saying. But the additional bit at the bottom display reads, "If you can read this, you are a geek."

* ''TheGuardianLegend'': All of the exposition is given to the player in the form of giant floor monitors.
* ''{{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."]]

* In one issue of ''The Batman Strikes!'', the concentrating reader can see that the newspapers lying around Poison Ivy's cell contain a mini-subplot about Harvey Bullock desperately trying to stop Gotham from holding "Riddles About Reptiles Week" and other supervillain-friendly events. In a straighter use of this trope, another newspaper contains excerpts of the issue's script.
