** In ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'', Visit bursts into TearsOfJoy when his new coworker in the Watch reads the pamphlets and then ''asks for more''. Although as [[spoiler:a golem and therefore entirely proof against lightningbolts]], his any conversion remains firmly hypothetical.

* A ''ComicStrip/{{Pondus}}'' sunday strip has Pondus getting visited by two door-to-door evangelists (apparently a married couple) who emphasize that the end of the end of the world is coming very soon. Pondus jokingly tells them that at least it means he won't have to pay back the rest of his house loan. The evangelists laugh and, thinking they might have a foot inside, casually admit that they recently took up a rather large house loan themselves. Pondus then points out that [[FridgeBrilliance it means they took up a loan that they never intended on paying back in full]], and threatens to call an economic crime investigator.

So a pair of characters turn up at the doorstep, say something about {{God}}, maybe clutching some folded literature, say something about [[TheEndIsNigh the End Of Times]] with a very small chance of [[HollywoodJehovahsWitness muttering something about a "watchtower."]] Cue humour inducing response.

* A TV skit had a close-up of a finger moving toward a BigRedButton, intercut with a panicking family fleeing for shelter. Instead of launching nuclear armageddon, the button is just a doorbell being run by a Jehovah's Witness.

* One of the main plotlines of the last season of ''QueerAsFolk'' is ''Proposition 14'', which would do nothing but make life harder for the gay characters (which is basically [[CastFullOfGay everyone]] on the show) if voted through. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments At one point]], two middle-aged women who are supporters of Prop 14 come knocking on Michael and Ben's door, talking about "protecting the holy bonds of matrimony" and Michael talks to them for awhile, not letting on that he's gay. He tells them that he's married (he and Ben got married in Canada) and he has two children (they've got a teenage foster son, and Michael is the biological father of their lesbian friends' infant daughter). Then a half-naked Ben shows up, introducing himself as Michael's lawfully wedded husband, and the ladies beat a hasty retreat.
