* In an [[http://horizonzerodawn.wikia.com/wiki/Your_%22Gift%22 ancient email]] found in ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' a soldier-in-training receives a package and a note from her girlfriend, who she'd been fighting with. It's a toy armadillo and the note says "I'm sorry, hon. Arma dilling with some personal issues." The soldier breaks up with her. Using a lame pun to brush over a major fight seems to have been a last straw.

** In another episode, Bullwinkle discovers a toy boat covered in rubies, with the name "Omar Kayam" inscribed on the side. When Rocky asks, "Do you know what this is?" Bullwinkle waits a beat before answering, "If you're waiting for me to provide the answer, you're in for a long wait!" Rocky shrugs and gamely announces (much to Bullwinkle's chagrin) that they now have the Ruby Yacht of Omar Kayam.

* ''Series/BritainsGotTalent'' had one contestant be given the unfortunate distinction of being buzzed off before he could even perform his act thanks to one of these. He came on with a doughnut on his head, leading Piers to question what it was doing there. He responded that he'd been to the hairdresser's and had his hair done up in a bun. [[GetOut This lead the judges to all hit their buzzers within a second of one another]], [[EpicFail with the contestant being given three "no"'s and leaving without having done a single impression]].

* A RunningGag in ''ComicStrip/FunkyWinkerbean'' is one of the characters making a terrible pun and a character with no choice but to listen suggesting that this is some form of abuse. For instance, a student whose science teacher inflicts ''two'' jokes on them beginning "Ursa goes into a bar..." and ending with lame puns on "Major" and "Minor" asking "Is this bullying?"

* In ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'', when Unity is protesting to her colleagues that they're berating her for something that is her disembodied hand's fault, she says "[[http://skin-horse.com/comic/todays-comic-494/ Talk to the hand!]]" They're both horrified, and she apologises.

* Papyrus from ''{{VideoGame/Undertale}}'' often has this kind of reaction to his brother Sans' puns. Even when he actually like them.
** Upon [[spoiler:meeting Toriel in the True Pacifist ending]], Papyrus declares that it's the best day of his life. After one bad skeleton joke from [[spoiler:her]], he decides it's now the ''worst'' day of his life instead.

* In ''ComicBook/DylanDog'' this is the standard reaction to pretty much anything [[PungeonMaster Groucho]] says. [[CrazyAwesome He actually used it to save a life once]]: as Bloch lied into coma after being shot with the doctors not expecting him to get through the night, Groucho arrived to his side and unleashed lame pun after lame pun until Bloch woke up screaming that someone dragged him away.

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in one running gag on [[Series/ParksAndRecreation Parks and Recreation]]: One RunningGag involves Ben making some awful pun about accounting or math to Barney, the head of a local accounting firm - and Barney invariably finding it ''completely hilarious'', to the point of inviting other employees into his office to hear it.

* King Astos of had been shaping up to be the major antagonist in the Elfland subplot of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''. Just before the [[FinalBattle assumed climactic battle]] would transpire, an incredibly lame pun by Red Mage wrecked the tension. The following pun by Black Mage was so lame that King Astos ''[[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/06/21/episode-298-a-natural-response/ died]]'' immediately upon hearing it. (The author of the webcomic is a fan of such {{Anti Climax}}es, by the way.)

* Andy Farrant of ''WebVideo/OutsideXbox'' is prone to yelling "BOOOO" from offscreen when someone else makes a pun during a video. Somehow this doesn't stop him being a key part of a channel that specialises in list videos where every entry brings a fresh caption pun.
