* One sarcastic review of ''SleepingDogsLie'' said, "I know! Let's write a movie where a guy practices cunnilingus on his cat! It practically writes itself!"
* In the episode of ''TheSimpsons'' where Homer is part of a barbershop quartet, he gets an idea for a song called "Baby on Board". Pretty much all the lyrics he comes up with are "something something", but he still says "this thing writes itself!" afterwards.

* The As-Seen-On-TV [=OneTouch=] Can Opener! This innovative invention, which is shown to "simply allow one to press the button and walk away, leaving a top that cannot pop a balloon", has some ''interesting*'' side effects, which include: 1) not turning past halfway through the can, requiring one to spend time rewinding it back to the starting point; 2) not working unless at 100% battery power; and 3) (while indeed leaving a non-sharp top) making the can's edge so razor sharp that one is afraid to scoop anything out of it (also not allowing the food to be re-covered by the top).
* In 1976 Canon introduced the AE-1, the first 35mm camera with an embedded micro-computer; the commercial announced that Canon had " unmanned 35mm photography".
