Many a strange things are happening in Normaltown, USA and the WeirdnessCensor isn't working at 100% efficiency today, so someone will suggest that the events are "Some kind of joke," despite how overly elaborate and complicated measures would have to be taken in order to produce such phenomenon for the sake of a laugh. They're hoping it's a CandidCameraPrank.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong;'' episode "Half Baked," Jake replies, "I'm glad that everyone bought that ''You've been punked'' story we feed them." Then again, this is UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity we're taking about here. If you've ever been to New York, you know that you have no chance of being able to justify ''everything'' you see.

* ''WaitingForGod'': Diana(who, for those not familiar with this show, is about seventy) tries to get a job in a trendy clothing store. The young clerk doesn't quite understand it, until she "figures out" it must be some kind of prank show, and tries to find where the host is hiding.

* Apparently part of the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] of Marvel Comics as well. In CaptainAmerica Comics #1 (March 1941) The ComicBook/RedSkull sends General Manor a Red Skull along with a death threat. The experienced military leader assumes it must just be a joke.

* Such an explanation is staple of the [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] MarvelUniverse. Alternately, if it is not considered to be "a joke" by someone, the possibility of the weird event being SomeNuttyPublicityStunt could also be suggested.

* In ''RegularShow'' (and ''The Man From Lolliland''), this is the reply Pops normally gets after giving lollipops as payment. Benson also says it to Mordecai and Rigby when they come up with a half-baked unorthodox solution for something.
