* [[CoryInTheHouse Newt]] tries to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this to convince his parents not to make him run in the school election, telling them he was attacked by an echidna. He rigged his shirt to squirt water like in cartoons. Predictably, it fails.

* Done in live action in an episode of ''MarriedWithChildren''. Al was rammed by a shopping cart (yes, a shopping cart) with spikes on the front during a shopping contest. At the end of the episode he is sitting relaxing, and when he takes a drink he sprouts several leaks.
* A variation in ''ShootingStars'': after Bob stabs Vic with a pitchfork, we hear a hissing sound and Vic is able to produce woodwind-instrument-like noises by "playing" the holes.

* It also happens in a [[TexAveryMGMCartoons Droopy]] cartoon in which Droopy, as a sheepherder, catches a wolf trying to make off with his flock of sheep and repeatedly shoots his gun at the wolf. The bullets all rush past the wolf, who calmly takes a drink of water and says, in a thick Southern accent, "Y'all missed me, sheepherder," and walks off, as the water flows out of holes made by the gun.

Added DiffLines:

* Invoked by Big Mean Carl in one episode of ''Series/MuppetsTonight''. First, he eats a muppet porcupine. "Now, I'm gonna drink this water!" After he guzzles down the bucket, this trope happens. "Thank you!"

* This came up in the host segment of ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode ''Hercules and the Moon Men''. Extremely tongue in cheek, of course.

* Played within the SuskeEnWiske comic "De Texas Rakkers"; Lambik enters a saloon and immediately, gunfire can be heard inside. Jerom then rushes in and askes Lambik if he has been hit. To check if he's okay, Lambik takes a glass of water and references this trope.
** A similar gag occurs in the SuskeEnWiske album "De Tamtam Kloppers", where an ape claims they were unable to shoot him, only to take a sip from a jug and to discover his body is full of holes which now sprout water like a fountain.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Mexican Joyride", DaffyDuck goes SouthOfTheBorder and has a bowl of chili, scoffing at how Mexican food is not so spicy. Immediately afterward, he [[FireBreathingDiner has an inferno in his mouth]], and he shouts, "It's burning holes in me!" A local sitting next to Daffy says that he has eaten the stuff for years without any harm. The man takes a drink, he gets up to leave, and sure enough, water squirts from his body on the way out.

* Frank Cross' old boss, Lew Hayward, gets this in ''{{Scrooged}}''.
* Used in ''DrGoldfootAndTheBikiniMachine'', which would have been a hint the girl was a robot, if our hero were a bit less oblivious.

* Happens as the final gag in ''{{Hellzapoppin}}''.
* As a reference to his cartoon-like powers, JimCarrey in ''Film/TheMask'' seems to survive being shot at by a squad of {{mooks}} unscathed. He asks them smugly, "Did you miss me?". He then takes a drink, sprouts several leaks and declares, "I guess not!"
