** Seymour Skinner is this trope personified. When Bart forgets his field trip permission slip, he has Bart lick envelopes all day and suggests to make a game out of it by counting how many he can lick in an hour and then try to beat that record. It's so dull that it makes ''time go slower and skip backwards one second.''

When Bart forgets his field trip permission slip, he has Bart lick envelopes all day and suggests to make a game out of it by counting how many he can lick in an hour and then try to beat that record. It's so dull that it makes ''time go slower and skip backwards one second.'''' He also believes ''a box factory'' is a perfectly good place to take the students to... ''''repeatedly'''. And on the episode "Skinner's Sense of Snow", when all of the teachers refuse to teach because it's a snow day, he forces all of the kids to see a movie called ''"The Christmas That Almost Wasn't But Then Was"'' that is, from what little we (mercifully) see and the kids' reaction to it (that Skinner doesn't cares about -- ''he'' enjoys the movie), the very definition InUniverse of "DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible".


Added DiffLines:

** Martin Prince is an uber-super-duper-nerd to a degree that hits this. That thing about the cardboard box factory visit mentioned above? He's the ''only'' student that is enthusiastic about going there.

** Occasionally used to show how boring a life Jon's family has in the countryside, since the most mundane things excite them such as watching the washing machine instead of the TV ("Here comes the red sock again!"), counting every brick in the wall of the house, taking a trip to see the new water tower, going to the airport to watch the planes take off, etc. This extends to stupid and dangerous things; Jon and his brother Doc Boy mention that one of their favorite games as a kid was called "Touch It, You Wimp!" and involved touching an electric fence.

** Marge actually gets thrills out of monotonous activities such as household chores and evening walks (of which she tends to prefer the dullest route). She once imagines herself being as flexible as a Cirque Du Soleil acrobat... and using that flexibility to clean hard-to-reach spots on her bathroom. On the episode ''[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E4ItchyAndScratchyLand Itchy and Scratchy Land]]'', the family trip she had already planned for the family involved going to some bird sanctuary ''just'' because a new feeder had been installed (this actually made Bart and Lisa look at her in horror... and later on we find out that it's a good thing they didn't went to the sanctuary even when Marge thinks otherwise, because the birds escaped and rampaged in a manner similar to ''Film/TheBirds''). The family actually tend to find doing Marge's ideas of fun ''more'' unbearable than Homer or Bart's troublemaking (and a chunk of Marge's "DayInTheLimelight" episodes are her rallying against other people's ideas of entertainment because she cannot find the fun in it, so she won't let anybody else enjoy it).

* The movie ''Ass'' in ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'' won multiple awards. It is just a close-up of some guy's ass with the occasional fart sound effect. The filmgoers laugh uproariously.
