* Often happens in ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke''. In one story, it's the cake itself that's been baked so hard it serves as a file. In another, the wardens need a file, so they go through Tricky Jack's mail ("Why me?" [[Running Gag "Your family is always sending you useful presents"]]).

* DoubleSubverted and lampshaded in ''Bewary, Ride'' by Glenn Murrell. TheHero is framed for murder and in a jail. The LoveInterest wants to bring him a cake - just a cake, nothing special. But then her friend, who also beleives in hero's innocence, visits her with an idea to smuggle a gun in there, noting that [[TheOldestTricksInTheBook this trick is so old]] [[CrazyEnoughToWork it might just work]]. She points that a six-shot wouldn't fit into the cake, but he pulls out a Derringer he got earlier from the hero as a gift. It works and the hero gets out using this literal ChekhovsGun.

** Another amusing example is from the FiveEpisodePilot when "El Capitan" sends them a package of explosives disguised as donuts. Burger, the BigEater of the group, thinks they ''are'' donuts, and eats one, [[EatTheBomb with rather unpleasant results.]] And even when they realize what they are, [[TooDumbToLive he asks for another later.]] Fortunately, they keep him from eating any more, and use them to escape.
