* In an episode of the podcast ''Reasonable Beef'' commemorating the tenth anniversary of ''Film/SpiderMan3'''s release, Creator/DomFera has this to say:
-->'''Dom:''' Dude, it's a letdown. It really is a letdown and it's heartbreaking and it's...they had a platform to dig deep man, they had a lot of threads--no pun intended--set up at the end of [[Film/SpiderMan2 that movie]], you know even Mary Jane y'know we end the movie not thinking it's HappilyEverAfter in the second one, we see MJ look off and be like "Fuck what am I gonna do?"\\
'''Jack Howard:''' Yeah ''Spider-Man 2'' ends like the fucking ''[[Film/TheGraduate Graduate]]''\\
'''Dom:''' Yeah, like "what have we done, what am I signing up for?" Then we don't see that shit at all! That movie--''Spider-Man 3'' is not an extension of the two movies that came before it. It's a fucking swerve off the road, off a bridge, [[ComicBook/DoctorStrange he breaks his hands, he can't do surgery anymore and then he goes to fuckin' Tibet and becomes Doctor Strange.]]

Sometimes the character will realise they've spoilt the metaphor and admit they've lost their train of thought, or perhaps they'll try to reconnect the mess they've made back to the original metaphor, which just prolongs the joke further.

* ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac'': The baker Raguenau, obsessed with poetry, tries to combine the poetry with the cooking when talking to his cooks at his bakery. Of course, the cooks don't understand anything he says:
--> '''Raguenau:''' ''(ceasing to write, and raising his head)'' Aurora's silver rays begin to glint e'en now on the copper pans, and thou, O Ragueneau! must perforce stifle in thy breast the God of Song! Anon shall come the hour of the lute!Śnow 'tis the hour of the oven! ''(He rises, and addresses a cook)'' You, make that sauce longer, 'tis too short!\\

''(To a young apprentice, who, seated on the ground, is spitting the fowls)'' And you, as you put on your lengthy spit the modest fowl and the superb turkey, my son, alternate them, as the old Malherbe loved well to alternate his long lines of verse with the short ones; thus shall your roasts, in strophes, turn before the flame!

** Raj tries to convince Leonard to ditch his date with his sister and go on a mission with the guys to track down the guy that hacked Sheldon's WorldOfWarcraft ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' account:



** From a Cracked article describing WorldOfWarcraft [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-reasons-it-impossible-to-quit-world-warcraft like a girlfriend]]: "Over time, the relationship gets stale because you're just doing the same old shit. So you either call it quits or you grit your teeth and fight through it because the idea of finding another game to fuck is just mentally exhausting. And then one day you log in to find that it's gotten a boob job and lets you do anal. Wait, I think I got my analogies crossed somewhere."
