* The ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'' universe is self-contained (possibly a historical account) within the 41st millennium... and ''only'' the 41st millennium. This is particularly painful to the Tyranids, who are not only one of only two races that lack faster-than-light travel, but they first appear in force around the year 40,950. Yep. While other armies have a few thousand years (Tau), ten thousand years (Marines, Chaos Marines), millions of years (Eldar, Necrons, the Orks' ancestor race), or a literally infinite span of time (Daemons) to play with, Tyranids get fifty years.

* In the episode "Here Comes The Neighborhood" of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', Mr. Garrison convinces others in town to got rid of all the rich blacks, with methods such as burning a lowercase "t" on their lawns and scaring them by dressing as ghosts. At the end he states they can now become rich themselves by selling the homes only for the others to point out that what they did was meaningless since there will still be rich people. Garrison says "Well, at least we got rid of those damn [[CurseCutShort ni]]-".

** At the end of the fourth-season episode "Homer The Heretic", Homer convinces {{God}} to tell him the meaning of life [[DreamSequence as they stroll through Heaven together.]] God gets as far as "The meaning of life is--" before the credits cut Him off. [[WordOfGod The writers thought]] that when the episode aired, the end would be immediately followed by a Fox promo (rather than just the credits). The idea was that the viewers would be pissed off by having a revelation from God being cut off by a promo.



** A later episode has Moe complain about the absurdity of the SnapBack. A prop wall fell on him, magically reversing the [[TheBeautifulElite plastic surgery]] he underwent. He asks how this could happen, and points out how nonsensical it is, but is hushed by the credits.
