** Voyager also had the much simpler quote of "Get the cheese to sickbay!" On one level that actually ''does'' make sense in context, but it's from an episode where the experimental [[OrganicTechnology "bio-neural gel packs"]] in use aboard ''Voyager'' falls afoul of one of [[TheScrappy Neelix]] 's [[LethalChef less successful culinary experiments]]... Yeah. The bio-neural gel packs were wisely banished to the realm of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness soon after, probably as a direct result of this episode. To sum up the episode's plot succinctly, ''Voyager'' was nearly destroyed by ''cheese''.

* The entire series of ''{{asdfmovie}}s'' are this, probably because it's a blend of RapidFireComedy and SurrealHumor.

** It actually makes even ''less'' sense in context, given that among other things, the fictional science of ''Star Trek'' warp drive says that warp 10 is infinite speed (achieving it would mean occupying all points in the universe simultaneously) and thus requires infinite power output. Yet somehow an underpowered shuttlecraft is able to do it, with no explanation as to how. And then there's the opening scene of the episode, in which they run a computer simulation of the warp 10 test... even though given that nothing has ever reached warp 10, there should be no data to enter into the simulation. Small wonder, then, that the people in charge of the series, including the script writer for that episode, [[CanonDiscontinuity officially disowned that episode]].

Which is a bit like saying you could tune your car engine to let you drive to space, as long as you had a different kind of fuel.[[/note]] And then there's the opening scene of the episode, in which they run a computer simulation of the warp 10 test... even though given that nothing has ever reached warp 10, there should be no data to enter into the simulation.

* ''Series/TheYoungOnes'': From the airplane crashing into the house, random unexplained time travel into the middle ages, Vampires in the post, random cartoon violence, a genie in a kettle that is boiled alive when one of them makes tea, Macbeth witches in the hallway, a roller disco in the bedroom, the very random cut scenes that don't have any meaning and the fact that the entire episode is held together, if at all, by a very loose plot thread.

* "Donk-Donk", one of the minigames in ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven Fever'', is so bizarre that the description in the English version of the game admits it's hard to describe. It involves what appear to be anthropomorphic tuning forks piloting a rocket propelled by their own rocking motion across a landscape of giant flowers and pink clouds, with a green cartoon octopus stuck to the underside of the rocket along for the ride. That's weird even for a WidgetSeries.

* The Mochi strips in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', which feature Estonia's new pets: rice cakes that look and (sort of) act like other nations. In one strip, Mochicanada ate Mochimerica's daddy, a Lettuce that wanted to take over the world, and was proclaimed to be [[GratuitousEnglish "The greatest country!"]]. And that was one of the ''less'' nonsensical strips! There's also the end of the HetaliaBloodbath2010, which managed to be this, [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]], and [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome awesome]] at the same time. Also, Godzilla-sized Rome singing opera. And regular-sized Rome distracting aliens with ThePowerOfRock.

* Describe a skit from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''... ''Any'' skit from ''Monty Python's Flying Circus''... Does it make sense in context? Yes? Then stop talking about ''Doctor Who'' reruns and describe a skit from ''Monty Python's Flying Circus'', instead.
** The fact that the show had [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent no general formula]] and the Monty Pythons were opposed to punchlines, instead favoring either seamlessly transitioning from one skit to another, flipping a nonchalant bird in the general direction of the whole concept of "context" in the process, or just [[DropTheCow dropped a cow]] on a skit whenever they felt it had overstayed its welcome, did certifiably ''not'' make their show any less nonsensical.
