* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' combined this with EngineeredPublicConfession; Roger, who framed Doug for stealing one of Vice-Principal Bone's yodeling trophies, goes into the office to taunt Doug, sits at Bone's desk and kicks his feet up -- switching on the intercom just in time for Bone to hear the whole thing. Doug even tries to warn him, but Roger's too full of himself to notice until it's far too late.
