* ''WebVideo/JonathanPie'' is a spoof journalist who says what he's really thinking between takes. Inevitably he falls into this trope.

* The first collection of poems by Creator/HenrikWergeland falls victim of this. A passage from one poem, where he tries to describe TheMuse in poetical terms goes completely off the rails after some lines. Her hips are "A flock of Angels with white flappering wings: Head to head they jubilate "Oh let the lord´s soil blossom!"" Her bosom is "a mystical poem guarded by a pair of Angels, having suns for helmets. They lift up their helmets, and then duck under them again, like butterflies, slumbering in a vaulted rosebud..." Thus, a metaphor hides another metaphor - making the whole stanza almost like a surrealist painting. The name of the poem? ''[[MindScrew Napoleon]]''!

* ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'' has this bit of narration from Episode 2, when [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Norlock]] first realizes just how oblivious most humans are to beings like him:
-->[He felt] like a wolf among the sheep. Admittedly, a very large wolf among a bunch of sheep who all appeared to be blind and deaf, and probably collectively lacking a sense of smell too… [[LampshadeHanging where was he going with this again?]]

* From the ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' episode "Ruby Rose", Ruby replies with this line after her sister, Yang, tells her that she will be "the bee's knees" at Beacon Academy:
--> "I don't want to be the bee's knees! I don't want to be any kind of knees! I just want to be a normal girl with normal knees!"
** Also in RWBY, the character song of Yang, "I Burn", has the line ''"You're standing too close to a flame that's burning / Hotter than the sun in the middle of July."'', jumping from the temperature of a flame to the temperature of the sun, only to finish on the not-so-impressive temperature of a hot summer day.
