* [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP]]-[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2128 2128]] is a stone furnace used as a torture device by a medieval cult. Whenever someone in the oven tells a lie, the SCP [[KillItWithFire incinerates]] them. This happens even for things the person doesn't know the truth of, and it has ways of avoiding [[LogicBomb paradoxes]]. [[spoiler: It's sentient, loves to eat human flesh, and isn't above roasting a truthful person.]]

* In the ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' episode "Man In The Suit", Bree tries out a "home-made lie-detector", i.e. a piece of paper and a pen, on Daniel. He has to draw a straight line on the paper while answering a question; supposedly, if the line wobbles, he's lying. In which case he is, or has in the past been, a member of a terrorist organisation, and he intends to eat P. Monkey, Thor and Owen if he runs out of food.

* Parodied in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_2KUXDACoU this sketch]] on ''Series/MrShow''; prospective employers are interviewing a job applicant and putting him through a lie detector test. It starts with basic questions (like "Have you ever drank alcohol to excess?" or "Have you ever taken an illegal drug?"), but they're soon flummoxed when the applicant - who answers everything in the affirmative - begins confessing to the most ludicrous things, including being addicted to every hard drug known to man, stealing 'space plans' from NASA, killing a man with his mind, and eating a train piece by piece after first derailing it with his penis. All the while, the lie detector is silent, indicating that he is telling nothing but the truth. [[spoiler: Eventually, the employers - who are revealed to be the operators of a shoe store - give him a job, and the applicant claims that he loves shoes - BUZZZT!]]

* The British sketch comedy series ''The Russ Abbott Show'' had a sketch where the police tries to use a new kind of lie detector, which notices the lies by testing the voice and the suspect doesn't have to be attached to it. The interrogator ends up embarrassing himself when the machine buzzes at ''his'' lies ("I'm a very busy man!" "I am not a man to use violence!""I can't be bought!")

--> Uhh... well, the question is vague. You don't say what kind of candy, or... whether anyone is watching... In any case, I certainly wouldn't harm the child. ''(Truth-o-scope goes nuts)''

* One episode of ''Series/WorldsDumbest'' features a gadget called the "liar card" which acts like a phone version of a polygraph, telling you if the person you're talking to is lying. Of course, it also gives you the ability to lie to the other person with a fake phone number and/or a fake voice (which sounds like the classic "ransom demand" voice, for whatever reason); several commentators point out how morally gray this is.
