Jerry Lewis was a director for ten years before that...
* This was the reason given for the production of ''Film/TheDayTheClownCried'', a movie about a Holocaust-era clown which would have been Jerry Lewis' directorial debut.

* In ''OryxAndCrake'', where pigs are spliced with human DNA in order to create ultra-large pigs who grow multiple human organs that are used for transplants. Some of them even have some human brain tissue, which makes them viciously intelligent. Of course, it seemed like a good idea at the time. * Similarly to the ''OryxAndCrake'' example, in the ''[[Literature/RevelationSpaceSeries Revelation Space]]'' universe an intelligent species of "hyperpigs" exists due to genetic manipulations conducted to provide transplant materials. While things are rocky for a long while, a hyperpig ends up being vital to saving all humans and hyperpigs from the Inhibitors.

* Most of history can be fit under this, especially the really catastrophic parts. So can the really funny parts too. ** Case in point: the colonization of New England. Most of the British colonies in North America were set up either as trading posts or as cash cows for profitable crops. New England, on the other hand, was Britain's dumping ground for social misfits and religious dissidents - basically anyone they didn't know what to do with. Massachusetts in particular was a hotbed of political radicals and religious whackjobs for most of the 18th century. Less than a century after its initial colonization, New England became the center of a secessionist movement that would eventually become UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution. Maybe putting all the crazy people in one place wasn't such a great idea... ** Mary Renault on the burning of Persepolis by Alexander the Great: ---> "Like many happenings at a very successful party it seemed like a good idea at the time." * "Hey y'all, watch this!" * [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy "Hold my beer."]] * Any youtube video that starts with "Are you recording this?"

* The mega-popular image hosting site Imgur instituted paid advertisements in June 2015. The first company to attempt it was Warner Brothers Records. The WarnerBrosRecords account had dropped to almost -60,000 reputation in less than a week. They made three whole posts before the account was reset due to this intense negative reception. ** This was mere days after the forced removal of NSFW comments (which in no way was related to the incoming advertisers, trust us), that sparked a mini-revolt by the community at large. Imgur reinstated NSFW comments as an option that was off by default.

* In the ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' movie, Crow attempts to escape the Satellite of Love by ''digging a tunnel'' through space. When asked why he decided to bore a hole through the hull of the ship, he responds, "I calculated the odds of this working vs the odds that I was doing something incredibly stupid and... I went ahead anyway."

* Said word for word by Story!Loki in issue #16 of ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' when their best (and only) friend began to question ''why'' they turned her soul into a piece of magical jewellery. Come to think of it if you apply this reasoning to most of young Loki's plans they begin to make a strange amount of sense... [[RefugeInAudacity sometimes they even work]].
