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.

* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' featured this with the worshipers of [[GodOfEvil Sithrak]], as they try to spread his word of despair and hatred, for he promises unending torture for everybody after death because he [[HatesEveryoneEqually hates everyone regardless of whether they're good or evil or if they worship him or not]], so why not worship him? The freedom from responsibility is liberating! [[spoiler:For what it's worth, they're completely wrong about Sithrak - they take their doctrine from his Book of Dismay, which he reveals to be nothing more than "teen poetry" he wrote when he was going through an angry phase, and not something he believes or expected anyone else to believe.]]

* In ''Film/{{Coneheads}}'', the federal immigration officers trying to expose them as [[{{Pun]] illegal aliens]] get into their house by posing as Witnesses. They fare substantially better than most TV [=JWs=] since their talk of the coming end of the world jives with the Coneheads' plans to be the ones who end it.
